I’m back from Atlanta! It was a fantastic weekend of learning, running, nutrition, some of my favorite people and even board breaking (yes, again- I got to do this for the first time over the summer).
I feel incredibly lucky to get to work with these amazing ladies and came home refreshed and inspired. I’m now in recovery mode (us introverts need a day to go inward before we resurface) and super happy to be home.
However, my now 3 year old decided turning 3 means no more napping, so my time suddenly feels much more limited, since she was my 3 hour napper! Eek! I’m trying to begin a quiet hour but she comes down about every 5 minutes with some sort of request. I’m thankful we decided to start preschool this fall or I’d have zero time to get anything done!
So… the workouts and meal plan:
Monday : 45 pool run + at home Pilates
Tuesday: 9 mile trail run, easy pace
Wednesday: 40 minute pool run with intervals; 20 minute swim
Thursday: travel + 4 on the treadmill (ave 7:49)
Friday: off, with lots of walking
Saturday: 10 miles total, with a 5k in hilly, hot Atlanta – 21 something, but I managed to get first woman! It was pretty brutal conditions so I’ll take it.
Sunday: recovery 3-4 miles + kb squats, kb swings, TRX push ups and pull ups, core
My daughter was thumbing through the Runner’s World Meals on the Run Cookbook and earmarked several recipes that we’ll use this week:
Monday: Hubs grilled Jerk Chicken, + eggplant, plantain and made rice and peas
Tuesday: Meals on the Run Shells with Bolognese sauce
Wednesday: Grilled salmon with Meals on the Run Protein Mashed Potatoes
Thursday: Leftovers or pool picnic
Friday: travel to grandma’s
Saturday: grandma’s/ girls night out
Are you an introvert or extrovert?
Any tips for getting some quiet time during the nap strike?
