Menu Plan Monday & Running Fun-day!

This week I am reigning it in: I need to focus on running and fix my “training“. It is not going to plan.  I haven’t been running enough miles and I also haven’t been training the muscles in my legs to prevent injury, ie. crosstraining. So, the goal this week, is to actually wake up early and get to the gym for spin classes and weight training the legs. I have to make sure I don’t get hurt now that I am getting older, and running more miles (read: recipe for disaster, love, or just pain! The jury is still out.)

For now, I will try to give you some ideas if you are in week 8 of an 18 week marathon training program for old newbie runners.

What’s the Running Plan?

  • Monday- 3 miles
  • Tuesday – Cross
  • Wednesday – 7 miles – PIYO
  • Thursday – 4 miles – PIYO Core
  • Friday – rest – PIYO Sweat
  • Saturday – 10 miles
  • Sunday – Cross

New Sneakers! I will cap out this week with new sneakers.

ve had these bad boys since last August, and a marathon…way too many miles! This is a good thing to do to prevent injury!

So is this thing:

My roller is just like this one.

Here’s another idea!  Eat dinner.  All week:

July 26-August 1

What’s for Dinner?

So that is dinners…Lunches are salads with lots of veggies, and protein, and breakfasts are smoothies this week. I have gotten away from having them daily and I like the way they make me feel, so I want to do them this week. Bam!

I hope you have a great week ahead- starting your back to work-week in the best way, so your days are productive and happy. Lord knows I can use all the help I can get!

    Ah I wish I had the fortitude to menu plan!! I am simply not that organized. And I love Vomeros! Have that pair up there. They’ve been my go to for years. I just started running in Hokas last year and I love them just as much (if not more!).
