Weekly Menu and Training Plans



Marathon Monday will be short this week and I am going to focus on my entire week ahead including meals since I was a little preoccupied running a marathon Sunday morning to think about meals but a 5 hour car ride made for plenty of time!
My smart girl loves Target! Summer parades begin...
Last week was race week and taper where I actually took it easy; no lifting, little running and plenty of walking.

Monday: 3 mile morning walk & 3.5 mile afternoon run
Tuesday: Morning core/planks & Easy evening Run 4.5 miles
Wednesday: 4.5 mile run for National Running Day and planks
Thursday: Morning 2 mile walk and Evening 4.5 mile run with MRTT group
Friday:  3 mile walk and Core/planks Evening 2 mile walk to parade
Saturday: 5 Miles with group (3.5 mile run + 1.5 mile walk)
Sunday: Marathon #5 of 2013 (Wet, cold, muddy run completed with GI issues L) More on Wednesday!
Check out that muddy course! This isn't even the worst!

This week will focus on recovery, eating right and making new plans. Guess what, I think I can actually talk about nice weather too!

Monday: Walk and core/weights, thinking about a swim
Tuesday: Morning spin & weights with trainer and Easy evening Run
Wednesday: Easy morning run and planks
Thursday: Morning weights and evening run
Friday:  Spin and core/planks
Saturday: Easy run with group
Sunday: Bike and weights

Meals are another thing that will be crazy this week with 2 dance classes for O, going to see Spirit of the Marathon II with friends and Matt, Friday dinner out to celebrate a friend’s wedding and of course Father’s Day. Check out Laura and Jill's Link up for other weekly menu ideas.

    1. It is one of those meals that pleases both me the vegetarian and DH the meat eater!

  2. I'm planning to use my crock pot quite a bit this week - so much easier than getting to the end of the day and being to tired to actually make anything!!

    1. I love the ease of walking into the door at the end of a busy day knowing things are ready for dinner :)

    1. The mud was awful, slipping everywhere and getting stuck!

  5. I've been thinking about adding swimming into my workout routine, too -- it must be the warmer weather! I'm not really sure where to add it, though. Right now I usually do spinning class 2 days a week, 1 prenatal yoga class, and a couple days of weight lifting/strength workouts. (I work out on my lunch break during the week then usually take it easy on the weekends since I can't run right now -- 32 wks pregnant!) I doubt my swimming would be nearly as intense of a cardio workout as a spin class, but I hate to ditch any of my limited strength workouts, either!

    1. I agree, every summer I think about swimming then winter and no way! You'd be surprised how intense swimming can be!

    1. lol, it wasn't truly a mud marathon! 1/2 the course was on dirt roads and thanks to 24 hours of rain it became a mud run :(

      Delete
  7. So sorry to hear about the mud and the GI problems :( But it was great reading that you're already making new plans! Moving on!
