5k training recap + meal planning

Hey friends!

How’s the long weekend going? We had fun hosting two families yesterday- old friends for lunch who were passing through the area on their way to upstate NY and new local friends for the evening. It was a full day of entertaining, grilling, kids playing, and perfect weather to sit outside and relax with our wine.

I also got out for my longest post-Boston run yesterday morning.

Monday: am 30DayShred Level 2 + pm 30 minute stroller walk

Tuesday: 5 mile hilly run

Wednesday: 20 minute spin with intervals; push ups + 3 minute plank

Thursday: 6 mile treadmill run with speed (warm up mile, 400m at 5:50 pace, 800m at 6:04 pace, x 3 with 4o0m recovery jogs, cool down)

Friday: off

Saturday: 9.5 run (warm up 9:45 mile, remaining 8.5 at 8:05 average)

How are you celebrating the long weekend?

Do you prefer speed work on the treadmill or at a track?

  3. Went to a BBQ last night and now I’ll just be chilling the rest of the weekend…Enjoyed a nice rest day today and hoping to do a run and yoga tomorrow. I like to do speed work on the treadmill. The track brings back memories…HAHA and memories that I don’t like.

  4. You had an awesome week of running and such good food! I spent the long weekend with my family and friends doing some fun things: anime convention with our daughter, running a race with friends, and celebrating a friend’s year running streak today. It’s been a great weekend!
