Good morning! If you’re buried in snow, please enjoy some for me!
I’m heading off for day two of this…
This weekend is my RRCA coach training, 8-5 both days. I’m always amazed how exhausting it is to sit still for 9 hours! The run-nerd in me having a blast soaking it all up. Most of it is not “new” but I’m enjoying it all and having a few revelations about things I might change in my running.
It’s been an interesting workout week… I’m adding some intensity but very slowly adding mileage. I’m really enjoying the time in between training cycles to take it easy.
The RRCA training is making it tough to get a long run in, so I’m aiming for 10-12 on Monday. It’s seems strange that 10-12 was a medium distance weekday run just a month ago!
Weekly workout recap
Sunday: Tina’s boot camp + 45 minute spin
Monday: 6.2 miles, with a virtual 5k of 21:28 for 5 by the 5th/Kyle’s Krusade/Tackle the Miles + 3 mile nap walk*
Tuesday: Tina’s Boot camp + 1 hour spin + 3 mile nap walk
Wednesday: 5.5 treadmill at 8:15 pace
Thursday: Subbed 1 hour spin (RPM 57 is intense!) + arms/core + 2 mile nap walk
Saturday: 8 miles (4 at 7:15 tempo)
*We’re going through a nap strike so I’ve done a few nap stroller walks on the days she desperately needs a cat nap to get us through the evening!
I just looked at the calendar and realized my half marathon is only 3 weeks away! Oops. I’ve been hoping my marathon fitness would magically carry me over into a new half pr, but now I’m thinking I’d better get back in gear.
And finally, menu planning for the week. I came across some awesome recipes this week. There were way too many to fit into one menu plan, but I have several pinned for later. Here’s the plan:
Monday: Toss up between Melanie’s Spinach-stuffed portabellos and her Crockpot Chicken Chili
Tuesday: Elle’s Lentil and Walnut Loaf
Wednesday: Roasted vegetable Quinoa salad and Lemon baked fish
Thursday: Spinach Frittata
Friday: Grilled fish or chicken and Butternut Squash Fries
Saturday: Leftovers or out to eat
