Workouts and Meal Planning

Happy new year, friends!

We made pork and sauerkraut yesterday and invited some friends over, which is a traditional PA Dutch meal on New Year’s Day.  Even though it was a day late, it helped me feel like the new year can now begin.  🙂

We also had our first bowling outing as a family on New Year’s day.  It was a big hit with L, although we had to chase baby J around for most of it!


It’s been so nice to have everyone home for the last ten days or so, but it will also be nice to get back into a regular rhythm… you know what I mean?

Workout recap:  We were all fighting something at the beginning of the week so I took the opportunity to sleep more than usual but am back to normal now.

Sunday: easy 30 minute run

Monday: off

Tuesday: Cathe’s super set

Wednesday: 1 hour spin with intervals

Thursday: 11 mile trail run with the running group

Friday: kettlebell and TRX workout

Saturday: 7 miles with 1 minute hard (5:45-5:55 pace), 1 minute easy x 10

Trail run on new years eveI loved exploring the miles of trails nearby- I would run them much more often if I had partners to go with!

I’m bundling up to meet the Moms Run This Town group this morning… brrr! Winter is finally here.

Do you have New Year’s Day traditions?

Are there trails near you? Would you run by yourself?

  1. We have some trails nearby but the longer ones are like a 20 minute drive away. The one thats close only goes for about 2 miles I think. I have run on them by myself on the weekends because they are packed with other runners. Most days I just prefer to stay close to home, but the trails are such a great way to change things up!

  2. Interesting – we went bowling yesterday! It was so cool – Glow Bowling! There was an incident on the lane next to us though – a toddler rolled the ball, and then went into the lane after it! The issue was that he slipped and bonked his head on the slippery lane. Poor kid! Life was good in our lane though. Nothing better than the feeling of knocking down those pins!!!
    I’m active with our Moms RUN this Town group too! Such a great group of ladies.
