3 weeks until Boston + meal planning

How are you? I’m writing this in advance because my friends will be here for a girls weekend and I’m stepping away from the computer.  Yay! I can’t wait to catch up with them.

As I mentioned on Friday, I took an unplanned cutback week this week because my legs were just spent! I’ll share more on over training tomorrow and how to know if/when it hits.

Sunday: 5 recovery miles

Monday: 45 minute spin

Tuesday: 10 mile run at the track – 3 miles before calling it a day

Wednesday: off

Thursday: 1 hour tough spin class

Friday: easy 4 miles

Saturday: girls weekend

So yeah… it doesn’t exactly look like I’m training for a marathon.  But I’m trusting that the extra rest will be the smart decision in the long run.

For the meal plan:

Sunday: Steak Fajitas (husband’s request)

Monday: Thai Tofu Veggie Stir Fry

Tuesday: Veggie and Chicken Sausage Frittata

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: Homemade pizza (L’s request)

Friday: Soba noodles with Roasted Pepper Sauce

Saturday: Day at my in-laws to play with cousins (and have Easter egg hunts!)

Have you ever taken an unplanned cut back week?

Do you have traditions for the week of Easter?

  1. Its always better to be safe with taking some extra rest I think, especially when you are getting this close to your race! I hope you’re feeling better!
    I love steak fajitas and thought about making them this upcoming week, but decided to try a new recipe for a steak stir fry meal instead….hopefully it comes out ok and I don’t regret passing up on the fajitas!

  2. Always better to take it cautious! I hope you had a fun and relaxing girls’ weekend 🙂
    Easter egg decorating was always such a fun tradition growing up! Now we usually go to vigil Mass and then have a big brunch on Easter morning—one of my favorite traditions!

  3. Going to a friends on Saturday for Easter celebrations and really hoping that the weather is as nice as it was this weekend…It’s been such perfect running weather. Have a great start to the new week! 🙂
