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
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
Thursday: Lentil Sloppy Joes
Saturday: Date night for hub’s birthday!
Are there any signs of spring yet where you are?
