How’s your weekend going?
We made a day trip to PA yesterday to hang out with some of our best college friends and their kids. Some of them I haven’t seen in years. We met at a park where the kids all happily played outside and splashed in the creek. We all brought sides and my friend Leah made awesome chicken fajitas with a very simple cumin, chili powder + salt rub on the grill.
It’s always fun to reconnect with old friends that know you well… it felt like we hang out every weekend, when in reality, we’re lucky to see them once a year!
So… training. The countdown is on now. After my first 50+ mileage week and then racing the 5k, my body has been asking me to back off a little. I have a half next weekend and don’t want to push too hard right now.
Sunday: off (3-4 miles walking NYC on our day date!)
Monday: 9+ miles with the 5k (3 easy warm up, 3.1 in 20:50, 3 cool down)
Tuesday: 25 minute walk + 25 minutes of strength (mostly upper body/core)
Wednesday: 10 birthday miles, easy pace (8:45 ave)
Thursday: 45 minute spin + 20 minute strength
Friday: 6 easy on a trail (just under an hour, no watch)
Saturday: 9-10 run (middle 5 on Alter G at 6:10 pace)
Ready to cross the finish in the 5k!
Monday: Apple Sausage Breakfast Bake (I think my girls would go for this!)
Tuesday: Crockpot Enchiladas
Wednesday: Salmon (or salmon burgers- we like the ones from Costco) + green beans + quinoa
Friday: Sweet Potato Bacon Egg Muffins + smoothies (more breakfast for dinner, because these look awesome!)
Saturday: Likely pasta or another easy low-fiber pre-race option!

Do you stay in touch with college friends?
Is anyone else racing next weekend?
