Happy Easter! I feel like I was just writing last week’s recap… how did that happen?
After the half marathon, I decided to take most of the week off from running and focus on other activities. I wasn’t sore or exhausted, but a running break just sounded appealing. I did squeeze in a jog on Wednesday because it was a gorgeous afternoon, but otherwise focused on biking, walking and weights.
Here’s the recap from the week:
Sunday: Post Half marathon, I took it easy with a short walk
Monday: 4 mile walk
Tuesday: 45 spin + upper body weights
Wednesday: am strength circuit + pm 3 mile jog
Thursday: Taught 1 hour spin class
Friday: Subbed another spin class
Saturday: 5 mile run and a day trip to Philly to play with cousins
Tomorrow marks the start of the Spring Reset Challenge! We have an awesome group of ladies in the Facebook group- I’ve really enjoyed hearing their stories and goals for the 21 days together. Some of the recipes I plan to use this week are from an e-book of Spring Salad recipes that I shared with the group but don’t have online to link to.
For the meal plan this week:
Sunday: Easter Dinner- Ham, mashed potatoes and cauliflower, sauteed kale with feta (We’ll have cake during the fellowship time after church and pastries first thing in the morning at the sunrise service, so I didn’t feel the need to make another dessert).
Monday: Mango and Sweet Potato Tacos (making these again- they were yummy!)
Tuesday: Mushroom, Spinach and Quinoa Buddha Bowl (from the Reset challenge)
Wednesday: Grilled Salmon + Black Bean Avocado Salad
Thursday: Chopped Medley Salad (from the Reset challenge)
Friday: Leftovers or out
Saturday: Inside Out Sushi Salad

How much time to you take off running after a race?
Are you a sushi fan, yay or nay?
