Workout Recap + Meal Planning

Hello from another busy weekend!

I think this was the last very full weekend for a few weeks, so I’m looking forward to a few quieter ones ahead.  But I soaked up an amazing day at the Shaklee conference yesterday in NY.  Most of you know I’ve partnered with them after having many clients ask what the best probiotic, Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin D or kid’s vitamins are, and I continue to be amazed at their obsession with purity, scientific research, and desire to do build health naturally.

Dinner made

I took notes like crazy!  And then I came home to happy girls, lentil soup and fresh sourdough bread.

Workouts

This was week two of recovery from the month of racing in October.  Ironically, I felt more like I was in recovery mode this week than last week- I think I probably didn’t take it easy enough the first week off.

Sunday: 5.5 mile run with the MRRT group + 2.5 walk

Monday: 5 rounds of this workout (tough!) + 3 mile walk

Tuesday: 7 hilly miles, easy pace (8:50 ave)

Wednesday: 30 minute spin with intervals + 5 minute core

Thursday: 4 easy miles + 2 mile walk

Friday: 20 minute spin with intervals + most of Jillian’s NMTZ

Saturday: off at conference

MRTTI’m meeting these ladies again to run this morning!

It’s the second week of the month… time for another round of the Fresh Fix with lots of clean eating recipes!

Meal Planning

Sunday:  Detox Lentil Soup

Monday: Chicken Salsa in the crock pot

Tuesday:  Butternut Squash Curry

Wednesday: leftovers

Thursday:  Stuffed Peppers in the crock pot

Friday: Family pizza night (one on cauliflower crust)

Saturday: Friends over for dinner (thinking Indian chicken curry + greens + fresh sourdough)

How long does it take you to feel fully recovered after a half or full marathon?

Do you have go to meals you make when you’re hosting friends?

  1. I’m actually hosting a dinner this upcoming weekend and we are planning on making Moroccan Chicken Tajine. It is going to be the second time we have made it and it is SO SO SO GOOD! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

  2. I found your blog and glad I did, it’s great!
    It typically takes me at least a week to recover from a marathon/a few days after a half, but I have run a handful of these races so I think that has helped!
    Great job with your training- you’re an inspiration!
    Happy running 🙂

  3. I think my mental recovery takes longer than my physical recover. My legs usually feel pretty good a week after my race, though the experts say it takes about 3 weeks to fully recover from a marathon.

    Quick question: Are the probiotics you mentioned vegan?

    Thanks!
