As I was looking at my week and planning out my workouts, I suddenly realized I was less than 18 weeks out from the marathon that I might run and that I better start seriously looking at my training plan. How did that happen?! Luckily, the workouts I have been doing fit in well with what I should have already been doing last week. OOPS!
Daily Challenges: 2 arm and one ab
Monday: 1 mile easy (after yesterday’s long run, I’m tired!) So listening to my body and doing just a mile today.
Tuesday: 3-4 miles easy (either a trail or a greenway run)
Wednesday: 45 minute progression run (4.5-5 miles)
Thursday: 3-4 miles easy (trail or greenway)
Friday: 1 mile easy
Saturday: A group of us are running on a part of the High Point greenway we never run on, so I’m looking forward to a different route. I’ll have 10 miles.
Sunday: 1 mile recovery
Total mileage about 24 miles
We are just coming off a beach vacation and we’re kind of “mealed” out. After a few days of eating out, eating junk, etc., we are just kind of sick of food. We’ll probably do some salads and some easy stuff just to kind of reset. I’m not really planning anything too special for the week as far as recipes. I do have some chicken and Italian sausage to use, so these are the three meals I’m thinking of for the week:
Avocado and Tomato Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with a side salad
Grilled Chicken Caesar Salads (H’s favorite!)
Have a great week!
