Workout recap + Meal Planning

Hey everyone,

I’m not sure why I’m including a workout recap this week, except to show you what true recovery can look like.  I did very little all week!

Although it was 4 shorter races, the RW weekend totaled 26 miles of racing so I’ve been recovering in much the same way that I do after a marathon.  I took off Monday through Wednesday with just a few short walks.  Thursday, I got on the bike for a solid spin workout and did this TRX workout in the basement.  And finally on Friday, I ran again.  It felt amazing!

Stroller run Friday

I rested yesterday.  You may have seen my posts wondering whether or not to race the 10 mile race today… although I don’t feel like I’ll have “fresh” legs, I’m going to go and see what happens.  It was too late to defer or get any money back, so why not run it, right?

Meal Plan

Without a morning run yesterday, I had extra time to do meal prep.  I made a big bath of quinoa minestrone, pumpkin coconut muffins, curry roasted carrots and protein chocolate pudding from the Runner’s World cookbook.  There are so many recipes in here that I’m excited to try!

Food plan Meals on the Run

While I cooked and the baby napped, my 5 year old pulled out everything from the cupboards and re-organized them: cans on the top, glass bottles, items in bags, and finally items in boxes.  It desperately needed the overhaul and it only happened because it was her idea, ha!

Food organizing

Monday: Ginger honey salmon with broccoli and brown rice

Would you race today after racing last weekend?

How do you organize pantry goods?

  1. I’m glad you are recovering well. I got a deep tissue massage and it felt glorious. I’m excited to see what you come up with cooking wise for the runners world recipes. They all look great but me and cooking is always interesting…
