Weekly workout recap + Menu Link Up

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

After racing the past two weeks (first the half marathon and then the 10k), it feels good to feels good to have a “normal” weekend. I’m turning my focus to picking up a little speed for the 5k season here… first one is next Saturday already!  I mapped out a tentative plan for myself and will share some of my favorite speed workouts later this week.

The highlight of this week’s training was joining my running group at the track Thursday night.  I hope I can start to make these regularly!

Here’s what the week looked like:

Sunday: 9 mile easy run with friends

Monday: Weights- Cathe dvd

Tuesday: 6 mile fartlek run (with some 800s at 6:40 pace) + teach spin (1 hour)

Wednesday: subbed spin class + arms/core

Thursday: 7 run with 10×400 at 1:28-1:30

Friday: Off

Saturday: 10 run (8:45 pace) + teach spin (1 hour)

Yesterday afternoon, we biked over to the local university for a picnic.  We were hoping to catch some of the track meet which was supposed to last “all day” according to the website, but everyone was cleared out by the time we got there.  We enjoyed the beautiful day and did some “racing” around the grass.

And here’s our menu plan for the week:

Sunday: Friends over for dinner- Fish with Charmoula sauce, baked on top of roasted potatoes, broccoli and peppers, brown rice

Monday: Crock pot Chickpea Curry

Tuesday: Tina’s Portabella Wraps

Wednesday: Need to choose between Lindsay’s Bean Burgers or Lasagna Soup

Thursday: Lentil Sloppy Joes

Friday: Ari’s Crispy Ranch Chicken (kid-friendly) and/or Kierston’s Seaweed Chicken Wrap (adult friendly)

Saturday: Date night for hub’s birthday!

Are there any signs of spring yet where you are?
