Half Marathon Training: Day 82

I really wish I was one of those people who sleep comes really easy to. Luke is and I’m so freaking jealous of him…Falling asleep is my problem. Once I’m there I usually don’t wake up unless I really have to pee or something, and after that I can usually get back to sleep, no big deal. But actually falling asleep legit feels like a chore some night. 

Last night just so happened to be one of those nights. After laying in bed for a while I tried some of my tried and true methods of getting myself to relax and shutting my mind up, but I still didn’t get to sleep until around 4 am. Then I was up at 7 so I could get my run done in the morning, so I’ve been running of of 3 hours of not so great sleep all day. Fun times. 

Thanks to my lack of sleep, I didn’t really end up doing the fartlek I was supposed to do today. As you can probably imagine, I didn’t much feel like playing with speed this morning, so most of my run was done at an easy pace. Although I did pick up things a bit on a few downhills. πŸ˜‰

On the bright side, it was kinda foggy/drizzly and somewhat chilly this morning, and that’s always fun! Plus the cold/wet was nice and invigorating. Good thing too! We had a super busy day! πŸ˜„

Once Luke woke up, we ran a few errends, stocked up on groceries, then we hardcore decorated for Halloween! Like we went a little crazy this year. We’ve got a bunch of lights (obviously not pictured), spider webs everywhere, bats, ghosts, graves, and even a scarecrow! 

So that took quite a bit of time, but it was a lot of fun! Now I needed to stretch, drink a butt load of water, and get then get to sleep. I’d like to actually be rested for tomorrow’s long run! I suppose today I’ll leave you with with one of my favorite songs from Revolution Radio. 

Happy Friday!
