Workouts for Treats

25 Oct

It is my favorite week of the year!

Halloween Week is here!… and yes I am a poet and I didn’t even know it.

Okay it might not actually be my favorite week of the year- but I really do love Halloween. I have also helped host a party on Halloween every year since college so this week before the big day always ends up being really fun.

I am not ready to reveal my costume yet but I have gone on many a shopping trip trying to perfect it. We also stocked up on halloween themed plates, cups, cookie cutters, napkins, candy, spiders and more at Target. It is going to end up being an $$ week too.


Since I am not one to pass up a good treat well, ever, I figure I should also keep up my workouts this week. I ended up having a good exercise week last week:

  • Monday: 1.5 mile run + arm weights
  • Tuesday: 3 miles + legs
  • Wednesday: 45 min elliptical + core
  • Thursday: 3 miles
  • Friday: 5 miles
  • Sat and Sunday: OFF
So I would like to make this week even better. Goal is to run 15 miles and do 2x weight workouts.
I already knocked out 3 of those 15 yesterday for my Monday Night Workout Challenge. I stuck with my goal of getting faster each week.. look how the times have progressed!





Now if I can only break 26 minutes on Halloween I will be a happy girl.

Who else is stepping up their workouts this week to make way for Halloween Candy?!

    I like the way you think- more workouts = more candy. Also, you’re rocking it out on the time- you’ll be under 26 minutes in no time!

    Nicely done on the speed!

    I think that’s why I run so much every day of the week… more candy for me…. πŸ™‚
