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!
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?
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!
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!
Sunday: Quinoa Minestrone
Monday: Ginger honey salmon with broccoli and brown rice
Tuesday: Fish Tacos with guacamole
Thursday: Pasta with tomatoes, basil and avocado sauce (From RW cookbook)
Friday: Family pizza night (current favorite is Coscto’s gluten free frozen pizza)
Saturday: Neighborhood Halloween potluck

Would you race today after racing last weekend?
How do you organize pantry goods?
