Workout Recap + Meal Plan

Good morning!

And good luck to all the NYC marathoners!! I’m a little nervous to list everyone because I know I’m going to forget a few, but good luck to Allie, Susan, Michele, Sandra, Jen, Katie, Beth, Mary-Katharine and everyone else!

NYC running with Nat

I ran through Central Park with Nat yesterday and the energy of the marathon was inspiring! One of these days, when/if I get my marathoning mojo back, I’d love to run it.

Workouts were light on running this week as I recovered from the Perfect Ten Mile race.

Sunday: Ten mile race

Monday: short strength workout, 30 minute walk

Tuesday: spin class + push ups

Wednesday: NMTZ strength + 4 easy stroller miles

Thursday: 3.5 easy miles + 2 mile walk

Friday: off

Saturday: 11 mile run (10 through Central Park with Nat!)


I’m heading out to meet my Moms Run This Town group this morning.  I need to map out a training schedule for the next few weeks.  It will be easier to figure out after I finalize my goals.  I’m still considering one more half marathon in November or December since my Maine half was only seconds off my pr!

Meal Planning

Sunday:  Homemade Sushi

Monday: Chicken in the crock pot + roasted sweet potato slices + sauteed swiss chard with feta

Tuesday:  Quinoa Minestrone

Wednesday: leftovers

Thursday:  Veggie omelets + curry roasted cauliflower

Friday: Family pizza night (homemade this week)

Saturday: At a conference in NYC all day


Plus rationing out the candy all week.  We went trick or treating with friends and have way more than we need, but L is good about spacing it out one at a time.  We’ll be sneaking pieces here and there, too, and giving some away!

Speaking of Halloween, we got off easy this year.  L picked an outfit from her dress up bin (Elsa) and baby J was in a lion costume that I’d saved from a few years ago.  Doesn’t get easier than that!

How was Halloween? If you have kids, what were they dressed up as?

What are you eating this week?

  1. We moved from our beach apartment to “suburbia” this year and our neighborhood had a block party and parade! We bought sooo much candy and got like 30 trick or treaters so now we are wondering what to do with all the extras! Haha. I wonder how much candy goes to waste each year!

  2. I was hoping for lots of trick or treaters since we moved to the suburbs, but alas we only got 16… I think we didn’t have enough decorations to draw the kids in. Our neighbours went crazy with the decorations. We have to up our game for next year haha
