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
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…
Sunday: Quinoa Minestrone
Monday: Baked salmon with roasted acorn squash and broccoli
Tuesday: Travel day!!
Wednesday: Thanksgiving family time
Friday: Thanksgiving family time
Saturday: More family time before heading home
