Workout Recap and Meal Planning

The runner’s reset ends this weekend!  This last week was about balance… thinking about what is most sustainable for the long term, what healthy habits are keepers, what treats will be incorporated into our lifestyle and how, what balanced workout plan is the best fit.  I’ll share some of the stories and blog posts with lessons learned tomorrow.

This week I started adding consistent running back in, and will start more focused half training this week.  Both of my girls had a stomach bug for a few days this week and my body felt weak the last day or two, I assume fighting off the germs.  Thankfully I think I missed the worst of it.

Workout recap:

Sunday: 2 hours of shoveling was enough!

Monday: 6 run with 9 minute tempo (3 minutes each at 7:15, 7:00, 6:50) x 3

Tuesday: arms and core (am) + 3 mile walk (pm)

Wednesday: 5 run (8:10 ave) + legs (squats, step ups, walking lunges)

Thursday: off

Friday: 5 run with 10 x 45 seconds at 6:30-6:50 range

Saturday:  unplanned rest day – fighting off the stomach bug!

I’m hoping to take some time this afternoon to do meal prep for the week.  There are several dishes I want to make, plus the pumpkin baked oatmeal that my girls have been devouring.

Do you do meal prep? Are there foods you prep every week?

  1. It was funny, I was just discussing what a serious workout shoveling is. I’m honestly normally sore for a few days after.

    I’m not a huge meal planner. I normally think 1-2 days out.

  2. We had the stomach bug come thru here too this past week! My husband & I seem to have missed it, but I’m not convinced it’s gone. Thankfully it was in the 50’s this weekend so I opened the windows for an hour each day to get the germs out!

  3. Glad you were able to fight off the stomach bug! My coworker was sick last week and I felt like I was fighting something off this weekend.
    I have finally been getting back into the habit of meal prepping after the holidays, and I always try to prep something for breakfast because that is the most hectic time of the day for me. I got a serious shoveling workout in earlier this week as well!
