I hope your weekend is going well! We’ve had a great time entertaining my sister-in-law and playing tourist a bit in our own city.
Today we fly out to spend some time with family in the northeast, which we’re all looking forward to.
L will stay with my parents for two days while we get a quick getaway, and will even get to meet up with one of my favorite bloggers.
The day after we get back is the half marathon… at 6:30am Sunday morning. That should be interesting!
I don’t feel all that prepared for this half, but am hoping the marathon fitness will carry me through. I took it easy for the first 3-4 weeks post-marathon, and now had two weeks to ramp up before tapering again. Here’s what this week looked like:
Weekly workout recap
Monday: Tina’s boot camp
Tuesday: Interval run (5 miles with 4×800 at 3:08, 3:12, 3:13, 3:13)+ 1 hour spin
Wednesday: 6.5 easy run + Cathe low impact DVD
Thursday: Cathe superset DVD (lots of squats, lunges, push ups, etc)
Friday: 10 run (last 4 at 7:45 pace) – sore butt from Cathe’s superset workout!
Saturday: taught spin class + arms/core
Sunday: Planning 5-6 easy miles
It will be a shock to switch to winter running this week, but the timing worked out well. With the race next weekend, I won’t be running much while we travel.
Here are a few things we were eating last week:
I’m excited that I don’t have to menu plan this week! I don’t think I’ll be doing any cooking. However, I did come across some great recipes this week, so here are a few ideas if you’re looking for something new:
And a few yummy snacks/desserts:
