Week of workouts + Meal Planning

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?

  1. Congrats on getting first female in the race! Looks like a great week with a good mixture of everything. Im an introvert and being away with a group of people would definitely wear me out!
