We’re down to our last full week of summer- with no camps or other exciting outings to fill our schedule, so wish we luck for a week of mama camp! I’m actually looking forward to it- we’ll do a little school shopping, get hair cuts, hopefully visit some new playgrounds/ splash pads and squeeze in a few final play dates.
It was a lower intensity week in training but the miles are creeping back up. This is the first week over 30 miles since I took 6 weeks off, and so far, so good! The Newport Liberty half is just a few weeks out. It won’t be a “goal” race, but it will be good practice for some race pace miles as I build for Richmond.
Monday : 6.5 miles with 3 at tempo (8:14, 7:29, 7:11, 7:14, 7:08, 8:05 and final half at 7:28)
Tuesday: 45 pool run
Wednesday: 8 with a friend (8:35 ave)
Thursday: 5 easy (8:45 ave) + kick boxing class
Friday: 45 minute pool running
Saturday: 12 total miles (4 with a client, 7 with another client with a run/walk, 1 to wrap up)
Sunday: 1 hour stroller (nap) walk + 30 minute strength
For the meal plan, I need to work in our abundance of cucumbers, tomatoes and basil.
Monday: Grilled salmon + pesto quinoa salad
Tuesday: Roast chicken with cucumber tomato salad
Wednesday: Greek style chicken wraps with leftover chicken
Thursday: Egg sandwiches/ wraps
Friday: Homemade pizza with basil
Saturday: night out/ take out
When is your summer officially over?
What are your favorite uses for tomatoes, cucumbers or basil?
