Recovery Week and Menu Planning Link up

Oh boy, tough race yesterday.  I don’t know what it is about me and the 10k, but we are not friends.

I still managed a small pr, but not near the paces that I wanted.  Full recap on that tomorrow!

For today, I’m back to sharing my week in workouts and the menu plan.  This was somewhat of a recovery week for me, trying to recover from the half before I raced again.  I generally give myself two weeks of recovery post half, and could definitely tell my legs were tired yesterday.  Lesson learned!

Recap from the week:

Sunday: Sugarland Half Marathon (1:35:25)

Monday: pm- 3.25 recovery run in the Virratas, 10 minutes of core/push ups

Tuesday: last minute emergency sub for a 5:15 am spin class (ouch! too early!) + pm spin class

Wednesday: arms + 3.5 walk

Thursday: 4.25 easy run + Cathe’s Shoulders dvd

Friday: Off and strawberry picking!

Saturday: 1.5 warm up miles + 10k race followed by spin class and tired legs!

I’m planning to meet May this morning for a recovery run.

Sunday: Curried Egg Salad Sandwiches or over spinach salad

Monday: Roast chicken and potatoes, salad

Tuesday: Tomato poached eggs with diced avocado and brown rice

Wednesday: Family night at the university- dinner and baseball game

Thursday: Spaghetti Squash Pie (madeover spaghetti pie)

Friday: Leftovers

Saturday: Breakfast for dinner or out

We’ll also be eating our strawberries from Friday’s picking fun!

Thanks also to those of you who helped spread the word about my health coaching or run coach services. Health coaching begins at half price until my final graduation in October, and running coach services are also discounted for those who sign up during March. I have room for a few more of each.  And I’m really excited to work with those of you who have reached out!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!  Link up your menu plan, and check out a few other plans for inspiration.

  1. Nice busy week! Where did you pick strawberries?! I would love to take my 2 little guys strawberry picking.

  2. Ah…you didn’t tell me that you taught 2 classes on Tuesday! Very nice! I have to say, Lily’s outfit is adorable! Thanks for the great run today. Definitely wouldn’t have done it without the company. 🙂

  3. What a busy week! Take that small PR with open arms – it is extra special because you did it on tired legs. And there must be another one due soon when you are properly prepared!
    Happy strawberry eating!

  5. Congrats on your PR! Think of it as a PR in the same weeks as another PR and not as ‘barely’ a PR 🙂 I hope you are resting a lot now.

    I ran a 20K this morning and I think I pushed it a bit too hard from being 3 weeks out of a full marathon. Super fun race though! And I set myself a 10K challenge to break for the summer, so I will be looking for some good local 10Ks to race 🙂

  7. Oh my goodness, how the heck did you PR on the heels of a half marathon? You are seriously so amazing.

    Strawberry picking sounds like so much fun!! Your daughter looks like she’s enjoying herself.

    I’d love to say I’m ready to meal-plan link-up, but I have no clue what we’re eating this week. I need to work on cleaning the freezer out. Somehow it’s full yet I feel like there’s nothing to eat in there. Now how is that possible?

  8. Superb blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Kudos!
