Ahhh, finally a Saturday with the hope of spring! It was gorgeous yesterday. The neighborhood kids were all outside, and we got out our first family walk in months. I think a few days of sun will get me through these last few weeks of winter.
Yesterday, I got up early to meet the Saturday running group at 7am. I just missed them so I ended up running ten miles solo. It worked out for the best, as I had to make two pit stops and could barely break the ten minute mile pace. By the last few miles, I started feeling stronger and finished with a few miles at 9:15.
It was a little sad to realize that I am probably too slow now to run with them until post baby! The Sunday running group is a slower crowd, so I guess I’ll be hanging out with them instead.
This week’s workouts:
Sunday: 7 mile run with the running group
Monday: 30 minute elliptical + Jess’s prenatal strength workout (this was a great workout!)
Tuesday: 6.2 treadmill run (with my 5k virtual race)
Wednesday: Another prenatal strength workout from Jess (am) plus a 30 minute walk (pm)
Thursday: 6 mile treadmill run (9:15 pace)
Saturday: 10 mile run
At 20 weeks pregnant with L, I ran in a ten mile race so I was determined to hit double digits yesterday. Everything felt good- my hips, knees, back…whatever might start acting up in a few more weeks is still happy for now.
I love reading all your meal plan ideas in the link up. I wasn’t feeling meal planning this week, so I was going back through the many yummy recipe ideas and got stuck at Barr and Table. I’m borrowing three of her yummy meal ideas this week!
Sunday: Leftover frittata and roast potatoes (we hosted another brunch yesterday- it’s the best timing for families with napping kiddos!)
Monday: Chipotle Mango BBQ Chicken Salad (this dish screams summer- we can pretend, right?)
Tuesday: Quinoa Minestrone
Wednesday: Crispy Quinoa Burgers and Sweet Potato Fries
Friday: Spicy BBQ Chickpea Polenta Bowls
Saturday: Out for something yummy… Vietnamese, maybe?
Do you run with a group? Does it work for runners of all paces?
