Workout Recap + Meal Planning

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!)

Black bean mango tacos

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?

  1. I like California sushi!
    I was just explaining to my 13 year old this morning that he will need to take a little running break after his half marathon!!! I feel sure that by then he will be ready for the break!

  2. Yay! So glad you loved the Tacos!!! They are delicious 🙂 I also love sushi!

    After my peak races, I usually take 1-2 weeks completely off, and I feel it helps more mentally and emotionally than anything. I put my heart and soul into my training, so this is a time to relax and refocus 🙂
