Weekly recap and meal planning

Hey everyone,

How’s your weekend going? Ours has been a bit more laid back as we get ready for some busy weekends ahead, especially with Thanksgiving this week.  We went ice skating yesterday for L’s first time ever and I got some Christmas shopping done (online).

I took it easy this week.  I shared on Tuesday that I’ve learned the hard way in the past from not taking enough recovery time after races so I actually really enjoyed mixing it up this week without running (after Sunday).

Sunday: 9 mile run with the MRRT group

Monday: 30 minute weight circuit + 3 mile walk

Tuesday: spin class

Wednesday: 30 minute resistance band circuit + 3 mile walk

Thursday: 3 mile walk

Friday: 30 minute weight circuit + 4 mile walk

Saturday: off6 Signs of Over Training

I don’t want to venture into the danger of over-training… these are 6 signs to watch for if you feel your body telling you to slow down!

This is a really short meal planning week as we get ready to hit the road to see family in just a few days…

  1. It’s funny that while I was running this morning (yay!!), the thought crossed my mind that it felt really nice knowing that my run wasn’t eating up a large chunk of the day. I didn’t have to do it at zero dark thirty so I wouldn’t miss any family time. There’s something to be said for shorter runs!

  2. I’ve recently had a break from running and having been enjoying other things until I got this stomach bug that wouldn’t go away. We’ve already celebrated Thanksgiving here (I’m Canadian) so it’s a normal week around here 🙂 Hope you have a great Thanksgiving with your family.

  3. I enjoy taking a break from running now and then, but the longer I take off, the harder it is for my to get back into my groove so I have to be careful.

    As far as Thanksgiving goes, I’m heading to New Delhi to spend the holiday with my dad, who is there for 8 months. I’m super psyched!

    Happy Thanksgiving!
