Was your week as freezing cold as ours? Winter has officially arrived, just in time for my first week of Boston training. I put in way too many miles on the treadmill this week, but they’re done!
Sunday: 30 minute spin +15 minutes of kettle bells, push ups and core
Monday: 8 run with 2 x 1600 at 6:55 pace, 2 x 800m (3:19), 2 x 400m (1:33)
Tuesday: 40 minute spin + 15 minute strength circuit
Wednesday: 6 easy run (8:35 pace)
Thursday: 10 run with 6 @ 7:25 pace
I planned this as a “peak” week before the half two weeks away. I’ll take the next two weeks a bit easier before the race.
For the meal plan this week, we plan to use our pressure cooker again. Both the butternut squash soup and fish curry can be made in there in minutes. Did you know that vegetables cooked in pressure cookers also retain more of the nutrients than other ways of cooking (even steaming?) Yeah, I’m kind of obsessed with this new kitchen tool!
Sunday: Butternut Squash soup + salad
Monday: Coconut Fish Curry
Tuesday: Sweet Potato Chili
Wednesday: Scrambled eggs with veggies + blueberry protein pancakes
Thursday: Ground turkey and refried bean tacos + easy guacamole
Friday: Cauliflower Crust Pizza
Saturday: Leftovers or out
