I’ve started looking forward to this post. There’s something helpful about stopping to reflect back on how the week has gone, and looking forward to plan out the menu. Maybe it helps me feel in control of life for a brief moment!
The half marathon is two weeks out. I finally feel like my motivation is back to kick up the miles, and now I only have one more week to get in some good training before tapering. Here was my week:
Weekly workout recap
Monday: Easy 10.5 run
Tuesday: Tina’s Boot camp + 1 hour spin
Wednesday: 5 mile easy run, 8:15 pace + Cathe’s dvd (more on this soon!)
Thursday: 9 mile run with 4x 7 minutes at tempo pace ( 7:00/mile) 2 min recoveries
Saturday: 3 run easy + taught spin class + arms/core
Sunday: Planning 12 miles @ 8:30 pace with running buddy May
The weather has been perfect lately. Nice and cool with no humidity, which is why Wednesday’s “easy” run was a little faster than planned.
I’m still getting used to sweating with short hair. It was a little crazy post-spin yesterday.
We did make it out for dinner alone Friday night, which was a treat! And the Spinach Portabellos and Elle’s Lentil loaf were big hits as well. Here’s the plan for the coming week:
Monday: Cilantro pesto fish tacos
Tuesday: Joann’s Pea and Potato Curry
Wednesday: Polenta Pie
Thursday: Tofu Broccoli Red Curry and brown rice (we like the recipe from Thai Kitchen red curry jar)
Saturday: Out to eat
