Hey friends! I think I’m back to normal over here… 8pm no longer feels like 2am, and I’m feeling caught up on my business, emails and other to-do lists.
In terms of training, I had a great 6 mile run on Tuesday when I got back. I was back to running 8ish paces easily and felt normal again. However, after seeing my PT this week they asked me to back off a little and stick to 4-5 miles for another few weeks. So I’m going to listen.
Here’s the rundown:
Sunday: 8 mile run around Amsterdam, including Vondel Park with 3 x 1200m pick ups (7:30, 7:15 and 6:51 paces)… felt like I was sprinting on that final one!
Monday: Nada… travel day. I watched Patriot’s Day and Hidden Figures on the plane ride home. I really enjoyed both, especially Hidden Figures. Such a cool story!
Tuesday: 6 miles with some short bursts up hill (8:23 ave)
Wednesday: pool run 20 minutes + swim 40 minutes (about 1 mile)
Thursday: 1 hour elliptical with 12 x 2 minute sprints (8.5 elliptical miles) + upper body strength
Friday: 40 minute pool run + 20 minute swim
Saturday: 4 mile run + 40 minute strength (Cathe’s SuperCuts)
I also got some meal prep done yesterday… grass fed meatballs, chocolate chip banana bread, another batch of kombucha and roasted sweet potatoes.
For the meal plan:
Sunday: Chicken sausages with sauerkraut
Monday: TJ’s Quinoa and Rice pasta with grass fed meatballs and sauce
Tuesday: Grilled chicken and homemade guac (maybe fajitas?)
Wednesday: Leftovers or eat at the pool
Thursday: Soba noodles with broccoli and pb sauce
Friday: Likely pizza
Saturday: Head to the beach!
What meal prep do you do on a regular basis?
Have you ever jumped back into running too quickly? I do every.single.time. When will I learn?!
