7 weeks until Boston + Meal Planning

We’re in the home stretch now, so I think I can officially start counting down weeks until Boston.  Just seven to go!

Here’s the training recap from the week:

Sunday: 12 mile run with a fast finish (8:00, 7:30, 7:15)

Monday: 30 minute full body strength + 15 minute warm up spin

Tuesday: 8 mile run in 68 minutes

Wednesday: 6 mile run in 46 minutes (warm up mile, then alternating 400m at 8:00 pace, 7:30, 7:00, 6:40 x 5)

Thursday: 20 minute strength + spin

Friday: 6 mile easy run

Saturday: 20 mile run off

I’m heading out for my 20 miler this morning (first one of the cycle!) I just have to beat the snow storm in the forecast.

We’ve all been fighting colds in our house this week and I skipped Thursday’s spin session to sleep in and catch an afternoon nap.  But overall, I’m fitting in most of my training.


This week’s meal plan:

Sunday: 15 minute Creamy Avocado Pasta

Monday:Pulled pork (maybe this beer-braised one) + Massaged Kale Salad

Tuesday: Leftovers

Wednesday: Collard Green Wraps with leftover pulled pork + guacamole

Thursday: Bibimbap with Cauliflower Rice

Friday: Garlic Baked Shrimp

Saturday: Day in NYC

Also, a reminder for those of you in the 5 by the 5th challenge to plan for your March 5k or 5miler this week!

  1. 7 weeks, hard to believe how fast it has gone! Hope your 20 goes well, did mine Friday after work to squeeze in between weather and schedules! Hope you are feeling better.

  2. So far so good this winter with healthy eats! Doing meal prep on Sundays has made a huge difference since my week days have gotten so busy and I am so tired at the end of the day. Love being able to throw things into the microwave and call it a day…I’ll take naps if I am really tired. Usually 10-15 minutes and I am ready to go again! 🙂

  3. We started taking Juice plus in november and all have been healthy. I swear by it! I think it bridges the gap in our diets and recommendations even though we eat really well. Also, getting enough sleep and trying to eat very well! Hope all are feeling better!

  4. I *was* taking a nap every day during my pregnancy, but now that baby is here, I squeeze in a nap only on the days where the nights are rough (there’s too much to get done while baby sleeps, otherwise!)

    The garlic baked shrimp looks delicious! I may also have to bookmark the Bibimbap with Cauliflower Rice. I love Korean food!!

  5. Wow – so exciting that Boston is so close! I am really curious as to what the weather will be like around that time, especially since I’m due that week. I think the 2 or 3 years ago, it was 95 degrees. It’s hard to think that in just 7 weeks, the weather could change that much – though I really doubt it will be hot with how winter has been sticking around.

  6. That baked garlic shrimp – YUM!!!
    I love, love naps! Definitely on the weekend I’ll take one – and if I am marathon training then I fill nap during the week when my 2 year old takes her nap.
    GREAT training for Boston! I am so excited for you!!!!
