Marathon Training Week 2 & Menu Planning

Posted Jan 27 2013 11:36am

Linking up with  Jill  and  Laura for menu planning despite my lack of ambition and ability to plan ahead. I think we have hit a food rut and realized we are rotating the same meals constantly so I decided to think outside our typical. What is your go to meal? My goal is to add in 1 new meal a week.
Sunday: Black Bean burgers & sweet potato fries on the grill
Monday: Quinoa Stuffed Peppers
Tuesday: Squash Mac N Cheese (leftovers from birthday lunch) Wednesday: Tortilla Soup Thursday: Pancakes Friday: Spinach Chickpea Curry Saturday: ?
I did make a few recipe discoveries this week: Apple Egg Nog Granola and Peanut Stir Fry, recipes coming. By far my favorite sports quote.How did this past week go? As I mentioned earlier my motivation was gone and things weren’t exactly as I hoped. Thursday and Friday got me back on track, but Saturday I cut my run short due to calf pain- a little stretching and rolling and I think we are good. Sunday: 9mile easy morning run & weights Monday: 4.6 mile Run & Yoga Class Tuesday: Morning Spin, weights with trainer & Easy 8 mile Run with a friendWednesday: 8 mile Afternoon Run & Evening Yoga  Thursday: 9.1 mile Morning Run (speed work) & Yoga Friday: Morning Spin & Afternoon weights Saturday: 8.5 mile Morning Run, Yoga 
My motivation seems to have returned along with above 0 temperatures! I can’t wait for tomorrow when it will be in the 30s. After almost 2 weeks of consistent yoga I think I am hooked. I went to my first class last week and actually enjoyed it, some of it was tough!
What’s my plan for this week? Sunday: Long morning run 14 miles & afternoon weights Monday: 3-4 miles Easy Run & Yoga Class Tuesday: Morning Spin, weights with trainer & Easy evening Run Wednesday: Morning Run (Speed Intervals) & Evening Yoga  Thursday: Morning Spin & Afternoon weights Friday: Morning Spin & Yoga Class Saturday: Morning 8-10 mile Run & Afternoon weights
I love marathon training, can’t wait to get longer runs and more speed work. Is there anything better then pushing further and going beyond your limits? Marathon training is all about doing what I love and becoming stronger mentally and physically.
