Marathon countdown, Menu Link up #11 + Mediterranean Snacks

As this post goes live, I should be on my way to the TriGirl Half marathon this morning.  With a projected record high of 80 degrees, it should be interesting, to say the least.  I’m having bad luck this fall, the ten mile race 8 weeks ago had unseasonably high temperatures, too.  Oh well, I drank water like it was my job yesterday. We’ll see what happens!

Here’s a recap of my training this week, with 5 weeks to go.  I added extra easy days and rest days as a mini-taper for the half.

Monday: 8 run (8:30 pace)

Tuesday: teach spin (1 hour) + weights

Wednesday: 6.25 run (8:20 pace)

Thursday: 5.75 stroller run (9:00 pace) + squats and lunges

Friday: Off, other than some walking

Saturday: Off

Sunday: 20 total (TriGirl Half plus 7 easy)

I’ll post my half recap tomorrow.  In the meantime, here’s what’s on our menu plan for the week:


Monday: Crockpot Black Beans, brown rice and sauteed brussel sprouts with thyme

Tuesday: Indian Chicken Tomato Yogurt Curry (ours is very similar to this recipe)

Wedneday: Leftovers

Thursday: Sweet Potato Mexican Pie

Friday: Homemade pizza with rice flour crust (missed this last week, trying again!)

Saturday: Falafels with Tahini Sauce

Sunday: Leftovers

Our highlights this week were Melanie’s Kale Salad with Lemon dressing and our Gingerbread cookies!
