This week’s cut back came at the perfect time. I was tired from last week’s workouts and looking forward to running slow all week. So that’s what I did! It’s not as exciting as speed work and tempo splits, but recovery time is really important too.
Sunday: recovery 5 miles (9:30 pace)
Monday: spin + strength
Tuesday: 6 easy miles (9:45 pace)
Wednesday: arms/core + spin
Thursday: 6 easy miles (no watch)
Saturday: 4 mile run
Sunday: 12 with a running buddy
The week turned out to be a bit easier than planned but this is the time to take the cut back seriously. I’m ready to pick things up again this week, with about 6 weeks to go until the Rutgers half!
Sunday: Quinoa Turkey Minestrone
Monday: Veggie omelets with side salads
Tuesday: Turkey burgers with avocado and tomato in lettuce wraps and homemade “fries”
Wednesday: Fish tacos and carrot-cabbage slaw with lemon tahini dressing
Friday: Cauliflower fried rice with tofu
Saturday: Leftovers or take out

Have you used cauliflower for “rice” or pizza crust?
