32 weeks workouts + meal plan

It’s been another beautiful weekend here.  We filled up yesterday with a morning run, L’s last soccer game, and a children’s orchestra for her and a friend in the afternoon (I stayed home and enjoyed the quiet house!) Today we have a picnic after church and might hit the pool later if we have the energy.

I hit 32 weeks on Friday! I skipped my run on Thursday, due to a rainy day and hubs being out of town, but it made for an awesome long run yesterday on fresh legs.  I was aiming for 6-7 miles, but felt fantastic and finished 10 total, with a sub-9 final mile which I rarely see anymore.  It definitely helped that I drove to a new route with fresh scenery and less hills than my usual run.

In general, I’m definitely slowing down, taking more walk breaks and cutting my workouts shorter these days. But I feel great!  Here’s the week in workouts:

Sunday: 5.5 run, 10ish pace- felt good!

Monday: 20 minute weight circuit (deadlift with row, push ups, lunges, lawnmower and kettlebell swings) + 20 minute walk

Tuesday: 5 mile run, slooow (10:30 pace)

Wednesday: 40 minute bike and 15 minute upper body weights

Thursday: 30 Day Shred, levels 2 and 3 (with lots of variations to avoid lying on my belly and oblique twists.  I also kept many of the plyo moves low-impact rather than jump lunges and double jump rope.)

Friday: off

Saturday:  10 mile run, 9:35 pace

 I’m loving home workouts for strength circuits or dvds… especially because I can wear whatever I want and not worry about all the tees and tanks that no longer stretch over my belly.  🙂

For the meal plan this week:

Sunday:  Leftover lasagna – I was craving lasagna this week and made a large 9 x 13 that will last for another few meals.

Lasagna with pureed veggies

I sauteed and pureed a pile of veggies into the sauce so L would gobble it up and not feel the need to pick anything out.  It worked- she loved it!

Monday: Turkey Lentil Sloppy Joes


Tuesday: Crock pot Jambalaya

Wednesday:  Veggie/black bean quesadillas


Thursday:  Leftovers

Friday: Travel to the beach for the weekend!

Saturday: Beach with my family

How often do you mix up your running routes?

Do you have plans to get to the beach this summer?

  1. Ahhh look at you coming along! So exciting! I am loving watching your progress 🙂 I am a HUGE run changer-upper. I love exploring new routes, and very rarely run the same route a few days in a row….or a week! However, I only have 4 runs left in Philly….so I am doing my favorite routes this week, which breaks my heart!

  2. You look adorable! You are in the final stretch. I remember being totally dunzo at 35 weeks! I am planning on having the most relaxing summer of my life whether it is at the beach, at home or at the pool. A few more weeks and the kiddos are done with school and we can slllooowwww the schedule down!

  4. We live a half mile from the ocean, so we’re at the beach most days. In fact, after spending 5 days inland (Rainier area), the first thing my hub did was check the tide charts.

    Low tides are early this week, so family fun a bit after sunrise is on tap… pending the winds, of course!

  5. I love taking different running routes, especially for long runs. We are hitting Mexico this summer, but it’s a dental service trip, so not sure about the beach…I do think we get one free day. As for your meals, they look incredible! I dislike meat, so I would love to live with you. 😀

  6. I need to remember to try a few of these meals…several of these look really good!!! Every time I have a hard time running, working out…I remind myself that you are still kicking butt and are more pregnant than me. Great job!
