Race Week – Weekly Fitness and Meal Plan #9

Lynchburg or bust!!  This weekend is the half from hot hell!  I mean, who intentionally signs up for a half marathon in August?!  I know who!  Me and 9 of my crazy friends.  We aren’t doing it to break any records, but more to go and enjoy each other’s company and to run, eat, drink and be merry.  Any excuse for a girls’ trip is a good one!



Daily Challenges:  Sticking with the same ab challenge from last month and adding in a really good arm challenge.  Still doing all of my hip exercises regularly.

Monday – 6 x 200m hill repeats with a mile warm-up and cool down

Tuesday – 4 miles easy

Wednesday – 50 minute progression

Thursday – 3 miles easy

Friday – one mile

Saturday – Lynchburg Half Marathon plus 1 mile

Sunday – one mile

Total mileage: 29-31 miles


Meal Plan

Let’s try that chicken recipe again!  Geez!  Cilantro-Lime Chicken with Avocado Salsa and rice  Hopefully this time, we’ll actually cook it.  We also caught a sale on ground beef so we’ll be trying the Beef, Cheese and Noodle Bake too.  It looks really good and I’m thinking of making it on Monday, so we can eat the rest of it all week for lunch leftovers. And I’m going to take this recipe and change it up a bit, using spinach vs arugula and feta vs goat cheese.  I also think I want to add in some cucumber and Kalamata olives.

Show some blog love too and visit Mommy Run Fast, Jill Conyers (co-hosts) and Running with Racheal, where I linked my Fitness and Meal plan this week!

Happy Week!

  1. Good luck at your race! I am sure you ladies will be having so much fun you won’t even notice the heat! Ha!

    I am the same way with planning meals and not cooking them – but I think it is better to have something planned and not cook it than the other way around, which usually leads to ordering pizza.

    Have an awesome week!
