How’s your weekend going? We had a busy Saturday, catching up on chores around the house, organizing kids clothes, my 4 yo’s soccer game, checking out yard sales and grilling for what might be one of the last times. L just started ballet and we found two leotard’s plus slippers at a neighbor’s yard sale for 50 cents each- score!
Here’s the usual workout recap (at almost 8 weeks postpartum) and meal plan:
Sunday: 35 minute spin intervals + 15 minute upper body weights at the gym
Monday: 5 mile run (8:55 pace)
Tuesday: Jillian’s NMTZ
Wednesday: 6 mile interval run (with 6 x 400 repeats ranging 1:35-1:37)
Thursday: 4 slow stroller miles (9:40 pace)
Saturday: 10 miles (ave. 9:10 pace)
I wanted to get 12 miles in yesterday, but baby had an extra wake up at 5 am and it was either go then or wait until she was up for good. I was too tired and opted to wait, which then only gave me 90 minutes before big sister’s soccer game. I’m realizing how tricky it’s going to be to get in longer runs this fall between nursing, Saturday activities, my desire to sleep, and convincing myself to get out there when it’s cold.
Here’s our meal plan:
Sunday: One last night to grill: Burgers, roasted plantains, carrots and peppers
Monday: Ratatouille + brown rice
Tuesday: Split Pea Soup in the crock pot
Wednesday: Whole Chicken in the crock pot + Sauteed kale + Sweet Potato “Fries” –> repeat, didn’t make this last week
Thursday: Smashed avocado chicken salad over greens + kale chips
Friday: Cauliflower Crust Pizza
Saturday: Veggie Omelets + Plantain pancakes
Next weekend is my first post-baby race, a local 5k. We’re also hoping to go apple picking- a favorite fall activity!
