This is my first Sunday Summary of 2014 and the last before my Boston Marathon training bumps into full gear tomorrow! So excited!
This week included some more chilly runs, a treadmill run, and 14 miles on 1/4/14 in 1:41 (can you tell I’m a numbers person?)! I had an extra rest day from running because of travel and coming down with a cold. I am determined to feel 110% for my first week of serious training so I was okay with taking a little extra rest if that’s what it took to get better!
Training this week…
Monday – 9 miles @ 7:25 average pace – included workout: 11x1min hard/1:30 easy (paces of 1 mins hard ranged from 5:39 to 6:05 depending on whether I was going uphill or downhill), N.T.C. Core Crunch
Tuesday – 8 miles on the treadmill @ 7:30 pace (too cold to run outside alone – and couldn’t convince my sisters to run with me), N.T.C. Leaner Legs
Wednesday – Last run in MA. 8.16 miles @ 7:25 pace with a friend. (temperatures below 10 degrees – so glad I had a buddy!)
Thursday – Early morning flight home, delays and didn’t get home until late. Hopped on the elliptical for 30 minutes and the treadmill for 1 mile of walking to shake out my legs from 8 hours in a plane. Also did 8 minutes of continuous planks!
Friday – am: 9.15 miles @ 7:35 pace pm: AbRipperX and N.T.C. Marathon Prep Workout
Saturday – 14 mile long run @ 7:15 pace with a friend. Done before 8 am! Not too shabby!
Sunday – Rest from running. Stretching, foam rolling, and hot tub to get legs feeling good for a hard tempo on Tuesday.
Total Miles: 48.31 Average Pace: 7:24/mile Total 2014 Miles: 31.31/3,000
While I am sad vacation is over I am glad to be home, cooking in my kitchen, and back to eating my normal, healthy foods! This week I’m keeping our meal plan simple because we’re moving on Friday (just to a new apartment complex) and I want to use up as much of what we have on hand as possible!
This week we’ll be eating…
Sunday – Crockpot Salsa Chicken Burrito Bowls
Monday – Beef Daube Stew from Cooking Light – with salad and egg noodles
Tuesday – Leftovers from Crockpot Salsa Chicken Burrito Bowls
Wednesday – Chicken with brown rice and peas
Thursday – Leftovers from Beef Daube dinner
Friday – Chicken with brown rice and green beans
Saturday – Dinner out with one of our MANY gift cards from Christmas!
Super duper boring, I know. I’ll have to make it up to Henri with some tasty desserts! Cookies and ice cream anyone? 🙂
How did your training go this week? Was it affected by lots of snow and cold?
Are you planning to make anything tasty for dinner this week?
