Weekly Fitness and Meal Plan

Heading into week 8 of 7 Bridges Marathon training and that can only mean one thing!  We are over the halfway hump.  Just a few more weeks of adding miles and then we’ll hit taper town in just 4 weeks.

7BridgesTrainingFitness

Monday – It’s the first day of school so I’m planning at least a mile, but may end up doing 3 recovery miles if I have time.  I tweaked my back this weekend so that is also in play too.

Tuesday – I’m meeting Cara to get in 4 miles together sometime after school.

Wednesday – Christine and I will head to Hamilton Lakes to run 4 miles on the trails there.

Thursday – I’ll get in 2 miles solo before heading out to meet my training group for an additional 2+ miles.

Friday – one mile day and Christine and I are headed to see Breaking Benjamin in Winston.  I am so excited to see them again!!

Saturday – Long run part one  Christine and I will have 11 miles to run.  Not too sure how that’s going to go after a late night, but we’ll get in the miles some way.

Sunday – Long run part two and we’re actually splitting it up too.  We’ll run 6 miles in the morning and meet in the afternoon for the Growler Gallop 10K.  It’s the last race we’re running of the Race the Bar Series.  I’ll also hit my 1,000th mile of the year on this run!  I can’t believe it!

Total miles: 37 or 40 (depending on Monday’s run)

Meals

Hello Fresh is not disappointing this week and we have some delicious meals headed our way.  We still have the Tex Mex Risotto leftover from this week’s delivery and we’re adding Parmesan Crusted Chicken, Spicy Tuna Tar-Tacos, and Smoky Black Bean and Plantain Tacos.

What’s on your fitness plan?  How has your training been going?  Any yummy meals planned?

Fitness

Monday – I’ll most likely go back to making Mondays one mile days due to time. I’m hoping to leave school in time to make it to BodyPump in the afternoon.

Tuesday – 4 miles

Wednesday – 4 miles

Thursday – Today will be tricky. I have my open house, Hayden’s Open House and coaching. I’m not sure how I’ll juggle all that but it’ll sort itself out. Going for at least a mile to keep my streak up!

Friday – one mile (maybe more if needed)

Saturday – 10 miles

Sunday – 11 miles. Hitting double digits now for both days on the weekend.

Total miles: 32 but probably 35-36

Meal Planning

We picked some yummy dishes this week!!

  • Lemony Shrimp Linguine
  • Tex Mex Risotto
  • Seared Steak with a chipotle sauce

Thursday will probably be take out since we have a full schedule. I may grab salads from Panera on my way home. Try to keep it healthy and fresh.

I officially enter my last week home for summer.  It’s bittersweet.  I’m excited about starting the school year, but at the same time, we’ve had a lot of fun this summer.  I love spending time with my girl too.  It’s also hard to get back on a true schedule and I’m going to miss some of my early morning runs.  It’s the last week to do it up right! 🙂

I get to say my two favorite words during marathon training this week.  What are they?!  BACK DOWN!  After a few weeks of gaining miles, this week is a back down week and I am so happy.  I feel really great with all my training so far, not really tired, no aches and pains, but I’m just ready to run a little bit less this week.  And on top of that, we’re headed to Williamsburg for one last summer hurrah!
7BrdigesTrainingFitness

Monday – 3-4 miles  With a meeting at school and other appointments, I’m not sure if I’ll run early or later in the day.  I’m thinking later will fit in better.

Tuesday – 4-5 miles

Wednesday – Long run part one, 5 miles

Thursday – long run part two, 6 miles early

Friday – 1 mile

Saturday – 1 mile

Sunday – 1 mile

For Friday through Sunday, I’m giving myself the one mile a day, at least.  I can see that I’d run early all of those days before we head out.  I’m leaving it up in the air, but I’ll get at least a mile in to keep my streak going.

Total miles: 21-23, could be 25-26

Meal Plan

We had another awesome week of choices from Hello Fresh.  We cooked one of our three meals this week already so we have a few more yummy dishes to cook!

  • Smoky Black Bean and Sweet Potato Tacos
  • Lemon Basil Chicken
  • Shrimp and Chicken Chorizo
  • Peach and Prosciutto Flatbread
  • Layered Vegetarian Enchiladas

What’s on your fitness plan?  Has your fall training started?  Any yummy meals planned?

Weekly Fitness and Meal Planning

I’m starting week 4 of 7 Bridges Marathon training.  So far, I’ve been rolling through each week feeling really good.  Despite the heat and humidity, my runs are going as scheduled and I’ve had some really solid runs.  This is my last week of building mileage, a back down week is coming up soon.

7BrdigesTraining

Fitness

Monday – 3 early miles and Body Pump class

Tuesday – 4 miles

Wednesday – 4 miles

Thursday – 4 miles

Friday – 1 mile “rest” day

Saturday – 8 miles

Sunday – 9 miles

Total weekly miles: 33 miles

I also plan on adding in two different short weight/HIIT workouts throughout the week too.

Meal Plan

We are still loving Hello Fresh and our weekly options.  Each week, I am so excited to see what choices we have for the upcoming week.  Eating home cooked meals is a huge change for us and I’m seeing the benefits in how I feel and in my weight.  It is far easier to maintain and lose when I’m eating meals that I’m cooking.  We still treat ourselves to a night out or two for dinner, but it’s not an every day thing.

This week’s meals:

  • Lemony Basil Chicken with artichoke hearts and broccolini
  • Fusilloni with beef and ricotta
  • Smoky Black Bean and Sweet Potato tacos
  • Tuna Melts on Rye Bread

I’m leaving one night open because there may be a Taco trip. 🙂
