Training recap + Menu plan link up

Posted Oct 06 2013 5:37am

Hey friends!

I mentioned on Friday that I decided to switch my half to the Divas Half marathon this morning.  Sandy Hook was officially cancelled. Boo… but I’m thankful to have a back up plan.

Saturday evening, my stomach still felt off and I have a slightly fuzzy head but fingers crossed that I feel good when I get out there! If not, at least I have a group to do a training run with.

We also found a great farmer’s market this weekend.  The one in our town is on a weekday, and we haven’t made it there yet. But the next town over has a great market on Saturdays… glad we finally got ourselves there.  We stocked up on local apples, beets and the last of the tomatoes.  I found a natural meat farm with reasonable prices and bought a whole chicken for the week.  I was probably most excited about the delicious kalamata olives and the spice stand I found.  Hubs was excited about a pickle on a stick.

I tapered more than I planned to once the stomach bug hit. Here’s the week recap:

Sunday:  12 miles with the group, 8:25 pace

Monday: am 8 miles- 8:30, 7:40, 7:30, 7:30, 7:15, 7:09, 7:17, 7:40 (ave 7:34); pm- 2.5 easy stroller jog

Tuesday: 35 elliptical and circuit strength

Wednesday: 7.5 slow, hilly miles (started to feel icky) am, pm taught spin class (took it easy)

Thursday: tried for 6 but stopped at 4… felt sick  :(

Friday: Unplanned rest day: sick

Saturday: Off- still not feeling great

Sunday: 13.1… hoping for closer to 18-20 total, if I’m feeling better!

Our first stroller run in a long time!


On the menu this week…



Sunday: Preschool Potluck

Monday: Chicken in the crock pot for tacos(we use an all-natural taco seasoning like WildTree)

Tuesday: Broiled Tofu, roasted sweet potatoes, beets, and edamame

Wednesday: Butternut Squash and Chickpea Curry with quesadillas

Thursday: Leftover crock pot chicken in tortilla soup

Friday: Leftovers

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
