Menu Planning Template, Workouts and Menu Plan

Posted Jun 30 2013 6:43am

I’m heading out this morning for a (hot!) local 5k.  I was undecided all week and put the question out on Facebook … of course, y’all told me to go for it.  So thanks a lot… :)

(By the way, I kind of like saying y’all now… only one more week to use my new southern slang!)

I’m not expecting to pr in this kind of heat and humidity, but it’s a nice excuse for a little speed work! This week’s workouts:

Sunday:  3.5 recovery run

Monday: Lactate threshold testing (2.5 miles) + pm spin and 2.5 miles

Tuesday: pm spin + upper body

Wednesday: 6 mile easy run (ave pace 8:45) + squats/lunges/core

Thursday:  5 mile tempo run (7:57, 7:28, 7:13, 7:31, 7:53) am + 3 recovery run pm

Friday: off

Saturday:  taught 1 hour spin + 100 push ups

I’m hoping to get in about ten total miles today with a few before and after the 5k as my last “long” run before marathon training starts.

It was my last day Saturday spin class, and a little sad! I have one more on Tuesday and then I’m done.  I hope I can plug in at a local gym when we move, even as a sub.  I love teaching and will miss my classes here!


I’ve been working on some recipes and a menu plan for an upcoming sugar detox workshop so I made a meal planning template as well.  If you like writing out the week’s menu with pen and paper, feel free to use it:

And here’s the menu for our final week in Houston:

Sunday: Pool party potluck

Monday: Baked fish and veggies with Charmoula sauce

Tuesday:  Summer Grain salad

Wednesday: Riced cauliflower bowl with eggs

Thursday: Grilling beef burgers, black bean burgers, eggplant, veggie kebabs and fruit salad (these hot dogs also look perfect for the 4th!)

Friday: Leftovers and clean out the fridge!

Saturday: Dinner with friends

After discussing superfoods on Wednesday, I found a few more ways to incorporate them into your week:

Would you run a race in July in Texas? Do you like to write out your menu plan with pen and paper?
