Workout Recap + Meal Planning (Link up)

Hey, it’s Sunday again! How’s your weekend going?

Our Saturday was quieter than usual without soccer this week, so we got caught up on household chores and had friends over last night for dinner.  It also rained all morning which made for an interesting long run! Today, we have a potluck at L’s school after church, and just like that, the weekend will be gone.

My training went well this week.  I guess I can call it that now? I think I’m officially switching into “training” mode- I even wrote out my plan for the next 3-4 months leading up to the Houston marathon in January.  Here’s the recap:

Sunday: 30 minute strength workout

Monday: 6.5 mile run (in 51 minutes)

Tuesday: 45 minute elliptical/strength combo

Wednesday: 6.5 mile run with 4 x 800 at the track (not all out, as I “raced” just 4 days earlier, but my paces were 6:59, 6:53, 6:44, 6:42)

Thursday: took baby J on an easy 4 mile stroller jog + core

Friday: off

Saturday: 12 miles in rain! ave 9:30 pace

12 miles in the rain- soaked!!

12 miles in the rain- soaked!!



Here’s our meal plan:

Sunday: Potluck (taking my husband’s sourdough bread)

Monday: Sundried Tomato, Kale, and Chicken Sausage Quinoa Bake


Tuesday: Steak Fajitas + Guacamole

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: Mediterranean Pasta

Friday: Possible travel day

Saturday:  In PA for family birthday celebrations!

When is the last time you ran in the rain? Like it or hate it?

Any plans for the rest of your weekend?

  1. The last run in the rain became a sprint back from the beach, pushing the BOB with a passed out toddler inside. I misjudged the distance of the storm (thought it would go north in about 20 minutes) and we got pummeled.

    I learned quite a bit, and was grateful that most people near us know us, so I avoided the crazy looks about pushing a jogger and running in PNW rain intensity.

  2. I usually love running in the rain unless it’s below about 45 – then it’s tough to stay warm enough. BUT if I had to choose rain or heat I’d always choose rain no matter what. I wound up running long this morning and the weather was perfect. I think it’s tougher to step out in the rain but once I’m out I really like it. Except for the soggy puddle socks I guess 🙂 Great week for you!

  3. Strong 6.5!! And 800s!

    I am completely adding that quinoa recipe to my plan!

    And warm rain-love it! Cold- no thanks!

  4. You are running the Houston Marathon??? We have to meet up if you have some extra time! 🙂 I will never forget running in the Nashville Rock n’ Roll 1/2 Marathon in torrential downpour. The rain NEVER let up. It wasn’t bad, but that’s because the energy from the race was so much fun and there were so many people out cheering you “almost” forgot about being soaked to the bone. 😉
