Monday: 6 am Memorial Day wakeup call. 3 mile run.
Tummy troubles struck at mile 1.6, rare for me on morning runs. Luckily we were running in my neighborhood so we swung back home for a pit-stop at mile 2 then headed out to finish it up. I made French toast for breakfast, with 9 grain and seed bread from Kroger. I always did French toast with regular honey wheat bread until one time I only had the 9 grain bread on hand. It was so delicious, I'm never going back. The seeds add a wonderful texture to it!
After that, since it was a day off, we went back to bed for a 2 hour nap. Awesome. When I woke up, I got my second "workout" of the day, vacuuming and cleaning up. My parents are visiting for the weekend and I wanted to make the place presentable. My dad even asked if I had a maid, that's how good it looked!
Thursday: 5:45 am wakeup call. 4 mile speedwork.
The speedwork on this plan is kinda weird: 2x1600 in 11:31, with 800 breaks. Mile repeats with half mile rests? And that's not much faster than our regular pace (remember last week we ran 11:40 tempo). It seems like I could do better with faster 800s instead. But what do I know? Does this seem weird to you?
However I had to be at work at 8 so we decided to cut it short. 0.5 mile warm up, 1 mile run with 0.25 mile walk x2. At the end I forgot to turn it off when we got home, hence the average pace of 43 mins/
For dinner I made fANNEtasticfood's Healthy Chicken Enchiladas for my parents, who are visiting for the weekend. Delicious! Even my dad liked it, which if it's not wrapped in bacon is hard to do!
Saturday: 6am wake-up call. 5 mile run.
Then a day of exploring around the wedding venue for a rehearsal dinner site. Afternoon nap. Dinner for my dad's birthday.
Next week's workouts:
Monday: 4 miles easy
Thursday: 4 miles with 2 tempo (12:02 pace)
Saturday: 5 miles easy/long (I hope... I have work console Sat and Sun from 7am to 4pm, so with the weather and early wakeup call we are planning a late evening run. Yuck.
Sunday: Cross train (I'm thinking Yogalosophy DVD)
Food for the week:
Monday: Shrimp Cucumber Feta Orzo salad from fANNEtasticfood
Tuesday: Veggie patch falafel pitas
Wednesday: Blackened tofu from Daily Garnish
Thursday: Happy hour with work people- will either eat there or have something leftover
Friday: Dan's turn to decide... something on the grill I imagine.
