Workout Recaps + Menu Ideas

Whew!  We’re in the middle of yet another snow storm today here in west Michigan.  Part of me wishes that this weather would have happened last week while we were in Florida, but the rest of me is glad our travel wasn’t affected or delayed and we could be here to deal with the snow as it came down.  Anyway, is it spring yet?  I miss running on the beach!

20150127_084745Here’s what my workouts looked like this week:

M – 60 minute beach walk

T – 5 beach miles (no garmin)

W – OFF (travel day)

Th – 60 minute kickboxing

F – 6 miles total (3 mile repeats: 6:45, 6:40, 6:31)

S – 60 minute strength + 60 minute kickboxing

Su – 4 easy miles

I am signed up for a 25k (15.5 mile) race in early May, so I am realizing that I need to get myself in race training mode again soon.  Unfortunately, given our weather, this means a lot more miles logged on the treadmill.  I am praying for a MUCH milder winter next year when I have to train for an April marathon.  Not that I’m complaining.  I’d gladly train in sub-zero weather all season for the chance to run Boston!

Here’s what I’m thinking for meals this week:

M – Homemade pizza

T – Fish tacos

W – GF pasta with homemade pasta sauce and roasted veggies

Th – Chicken Broccoli Quinoa casserole (recipe coming soon!)

F – leftovers

S – Chipotle (our favorite take out food)

Su – sweet potato chicken chili and GF corn bread

I hope your week is off to a great start!  My Monday included a snow day (again!) followed by a trip to the gym.  I planned to do a strength class and then run, but I had cleared off my driveway right before leaving and completely forgot I was wearing snow boots when I jumped in the car.  So I did the class in a combination of boots and bare feet and tried not to let on that I felt completely ridiculous.  And I skipped the run!
