My husband gets back today from a week in Costa Rica “working” – woohoo! I’m so ready to have him home again- I forget how much he does until he’s gone. No one was emptying the trash, dumping the compost, taking out the recycling, loading and unloading the dishwasher, washing the baby’s diapers… I was keenly aware that it was just me. It was a marathon of a week! Every time I turned around someone needed me. Every time I cleaned one room, the next was in the process of becoming a disaster. He was missed!
And next time I’m going with him. 🙂
This morning I’m heading out for a 10 mile race. I haven’t talked about it because I wasn’t sure if I would do it or not but I decided to go for it. Even if my legs aren’t up for “racing” it will be a great way to get in a long run. My parents are here helping out for the weekend so I have no excuses!
Sunday: 4 recovery miles
Monday: taught spin class + NEAT throughout the day
Tuesday: 10 run (8:18 pace)
Wednesday: 6 easy stroller miles + push ups and core
Thursday: at home strength workout + short walk
Friday: 6 easy miles (8:50 pace)
If I get my 20 miler in as planned today, I’ll finally be over 45 miles for the week. This training cycle has not been what I intended, but it’s certainly good enough. Just 5 weeks to go!
For the meal plan:
Sunday: Salmon, steamed cabbage, corn and sourdough bread with my parents
Tuesday: Spaghetti Squash Pizza Bake
Wednesday: Sweet potato black bean veggie burgers
Friday: Crock pot Raspberry Chipotle Chicken
Saturday: Salads with leftover chicken
