After another amazing summer weekend, I am once again ready for some healthy meals this week! (I’ll talk about the weekend in tomorrow’s post.) As much fun as it is to relax and indulge, I just find that I don’t feel like myself and I truly look forward to getting back to my usual eating habits.
Here is what’s on the menu for this week:

My prep took about an hour and a half, which is less time than usual so either I did less prep or I am just getting better at it:) Either way I feel like it saves a ton of time during the week, so it’s worth it as long as I have a few hours to spare on Sunday.
As far as running goes, this week I bumped my mileage up from last week (which was only 13 miles).
Sunday: Molly Murphy Memorial 5k 3.1 miles (6:58 pace)
Monday: Swam for 30 minutes, PM- Body Pump
Tuesday: 3.5 miles (8:30 pace), PM- 60 minutes hot yoga
Wednesday: 30 minutes elliptical, Body Pump, CX Works
Thursday: 4.7 miles (alternated hard and easy: 9:12, 8:06, 8:55, 7:46, 8:15) (Average pace 8:27)
Friday: 2.47 miles (9:06 pace), Body Pump
Saturday: 8 miles (8:44 pace)
While I feel like my easier runs have been at a faster pace (probably due to lower mileage) I don’t feel like I have that bounce back that I would have expected. It may have to do with the weather, but since I’m still not feeling 100% I’m not planning to build too much this upcoming week. I am hoping that this “break” is like a taper and after a few more days I will be ready to run a lot more! Probably not, but wishful thinking!
How are you getting ready for the upcoming week?
