Workout Recaps + Meal Planning

Hmmm…this post was supposed to be ready to go yesterday, but life got in the way again.  We closed on our current house yesterday, and now we have 45 days of rent free (and mortgage free) living before we need to be all moved out and settled in our new home.  So I suppose I’ll need to start accumulating moving boxes and packing stuff up soon.  The good news is that the new place is only a few miles from our current home, and we’ll hopefully have several days to get all our stuff there.  So the actual moving process should be a lot less stressful this time around (fingers crossed!).  The last time we did this we moved from Pennsylvania to Michigan all in one day with two smaller children!

As far as workouts, here is what last week looked like for me:

M – 60 minutes strength

T – 6 total miles with 1.5 mile w/u, three mile repeats (6:15, 6:31, 6:40), 1/5 mile c/d


W – Off

Th – 60 minutes kickboxing

F – 6 miles (3 at tempo pace of 7:30 – 7:40)

S – 60 minutes kickboxing

Su – 12 miles (first ten easy, last two fast at 7:50, 7:41)

I really enjoy ending my long runs at race pace.  It gives me lots of added confidence that I can still hit that pace even on tired legs.  I’ve got about six weeks until my 25k race (15.5 miles) and I’m right about where I want to be.  I’m looking forward to seeing even more sunshine and warmers temperatures in the coming weeks (again, fingers crossed!).

Here’s what I’m planning for dinner this week:

M – veggie burgers on the grill + salad

T – stuffed peppers

W – homemade pizza

Th – lasagna roll ups

F – leftovers

S – Out (my mom is visiting!)

I hope the beginning of your week is going well!  Cheers to a happy, healthy next several days!
