How was your weekend? We went to a farm to pick pumpkins and apples on Saturday, which is one of my favorite fall activities. We made applesauce over the weekend and carved our pumpkins. I’m considering either an apple pie or crisp this week.
Another week of training down!
It was a cut back week, which was much needed after increasing mileage for 3 weeks in a row.
Monday : 8 easy with a few 20 second strides (8:18 ave)
Tuesday: 50 minutes spin + core
Wednesday: 11 total with 3 x 2 + 1 miles at HMP
3 warm up (9:10, 8:10, 8:39, LT (7:05, 6:52), (6:59, 6:52), (7:10, 7:00) and 6:52, cool down 9:18)
It was another humid morning so I was happy to have this done!
Thursday: 5 easy stroller run (probably around 10:00 ave)
Friday: 40 pool run with a few intervals
Saturday: 10 easy, half with one of my athletes training for NYC getting in her last 20 miler
Sunday: 4 recovery miles
This will be a peak week with one more 20 miler next weekend, and then taper begins!
On the meal plan…
I’m focusing on 3 recipes to make, and filling in the gaps with leftovers and quick meals like eggs, quesadillas, salads and sandwiches.
This week’s recipes include:
What are your favorite things to make with apples?
