Friday Greatist WOD 6k run

Saturday 10k steady

Sunday 15k long run 15k

Before writing out what I did this week, I was feeling lazy and bummed about my runs, while I did them, they didn’t always feel great. Then I realized I’ve ran more this week than in all of December. Seriously. The awesomeness of my 15k run also pretty much made up for all the suck. It wasn’t fast, there was ice on the path so I walked instead of risking falling, but it was great. I never wanted a walk break and I only walked for safety – not because I needed to. I have a lot more to say about how I feel about running, so much that I’m writing an entire post about it (it’s been a long time since I talked about running!).

And now the plan for this week:

Monday Abs
Push ups
Legs
7 min workout
Tuesday 6k run
Abs
Legs
7 min workout
Wednesday 10k steady
Abs
Push ups
Legs
7 min workout
Thursday 10k steady
Abs
Legs
7 min workout
Friday Abs
Push ups
Legs
7 min workout
Saturday 10k steady
Abs
Legs
7 min workout
Sunday 18k long run
Abs
Legs
7 min workout

The ab and leg workouts I’m doing are from the 30 Day Fitness Challenges app, the push ups is from 100 Pushups app and the third workout is from the 7 Minute Workout Challenge app.

Once again, I’ve highly modified my training schedule – since I’m not a fan of being injured and not being able to run (being sick was bad enough!!) I’ve pretty much taken out all of the speedwork from my training program and I’m focusing on rebuilding my base through steady pace runs and building my distance to a half marathon distance in the 5 remaining weeks before Orlando!

Both Ann and I have had setbacks due to illness and winter weather, so we’ve revised our goals to be more in-line with where we are now – and I”m feeling pretty good about the two runs. We’ll be in Disney – we’re certain to have fun!!

Breakfast

I have four green smoothie packs in my freezer, so I plan on using those up Mon-Thurs and treating myself to something on Friday. I’m not sure what yet, it might just be oatmeal, but it’ll be a temporary change from the smoothies.

Lunch

I enjoyed my salads so much last week, that I’m brining them back this week. It also helps that I have a lot of the supplies left over, so it’ll make grocery shopping easier for the fixin’s. I plan on posting the recipe (if you can call it that) on the blog this week. Probably.

Snacks

Snacks are pretty much the same: yogurt, fruit, trail mix, except I’m also adding in the granola bars I made last week. They’re ridiculously amazing – if you haven’t made them yet you really should!

Dinner

I did a bit more of a substantial grocery shop this week, so I’ll have salads, wraps and curry this week. The spinach peanut curry from a few weeks back was a bit of a fail, but I know the green curry is good, so I’m really looking forward to that!

Tell me: What are you looking forward to this week?

Today I’m linking up with Amanda at Run To The Finish for Accountability Monday.

  1. I really like how you have laid out your plans…I think that would make me more accountable each day…I could put it on the fridge and check it off!

    Thanks for the idea
