As this post goes up, I should be running 8 miles with my friend Rhina.
We’re taking a new route, and I’m excited for a change of scenery while enjoying great conversation-running buddies make all the difference in the world. Thankfully, quite a few friends are runners and they’re all patient with slower runners like myself.
As far as eats and fitness go, I’m having one of those weeks where I feel really invigorated and ready to go after it. Some of you may agree with me that motivation tends to waver, especially without new fitness goals or recipe inspiration- I feel like it’s an “on” week. A lot of has to do with the fact that I’m doing long runs consistently, and since I only have one run day each week, I look forward to it. Sometimes Liv and the Pilot are with me and we’ll take turns pushing the jogging stroller, or I’m with a friend. It’s been a really great way for me to train since too much running burns me out quickly. Hopefully training this way will enable me to be successful with my next half marathon.
I was also in a little bit of an eating rut, even though posting weekly plans helped me to jump out of our usual rotation. By signing up for a weekly farm box, I’m even more excited to play around with new recipes and ingredients, especially since everything is so fresh. I had the BEST salad yesterday using the rest of the romaine- I can’t wait to get this week’s produce.
Here’s what this week’s tentative fitness and meal plan looks like:
Sunday: Runday- 8 miles
Tuesday: Weights and HIIT (jump rope intervals)
Wednesday: Teach Zumba
Friday: Weights and HIIT (1-1 ratio)
Saturday: Teach Zumba
Recipes and prep:
–More amazeballs (testing out a new flavor today!)
-Spaghetti squash with pumpkin sage sauce and goat cheese
-Carrot, apple, beat, ginger juices
-Warm fall salad
So what’s on the fitness agenda for the week? Are you trying out any new recipes? Any virtual running buddies out there?
