Monday & Wednesday: avocado toast
Tuesday & Thursday: breakfast burritos
Friday: breakfast potatoes, avocado, and eggs with a heck of a lot of salsa
Saturday: PB & honey toast and banana or "there's a long run about to go down in here"
Sunday: see lunch
Monday, Tuesday, Friday: the vegan buffalo mac & cheese that I made last Sunday and substituted a bunch of ingredients so that I wouldn't have to go to the store. It was on point and reheated well. I kept a few portions for the freezer in coming weeks and I will make this again. P.S. I used rainbow cauliflower so that's what the funny looking purple stuff in front is
Wednesday: work catering, big ol salad with tofu and purple rice and other yummies.
Thursday: something you haven't seen in a while c/o the freezer. Chrissy Teigan's actual drunken noodles.
Sunday: big family get together. Lunchtime was the only time that worked for everyone's schedules. SIL#1 made pasta and meatballs, SIL#3 made salad, and we made dessert.
Monday & Tuesday (family meals) and Wednesday (date night): chili mac. We don't usually have leftovers on date night but hubs and I were both into eating the same thing for three nights in a row so we went for it.
Thursday & Saturday: I was in a good pattern of having salmon once or twice a week but since vacation it's kind of fallen of the radar. Tina posted about air fryer salmon and that was all it took to get back on track. From bottom to top: rice, Costco stir fry veggies, avocado, and air fried salmon tossed with a bit of dressing and the crunchies from an Asian salad kit. Thursday was a solo dinner, Saturday was an at-home date night (hubs had meatloaf and mashed potatoes).
Friday (date night): out on the town to a Mexican/Asian fusion type place. He had a quesadilla and I had a bang bang shrimp rice bowl.
Sunday: TBD, everyone's pretty full from lunch right now.
- Sweet potato, black bean, and corn enchiladas, a favorite that I've made many times before. My standard recipe alterations are to use green enchilada sauce and to double the recipe.
- Breakfast burritos
- Breakfast potatoes
- Shredded BBQ chicken via the crockpot, I'll use this in quesadillas.
I'm linking up with Kim and Deborah for The Weekly Run Down and looking forward to reading about everyone's running adventures from the couch.
28 miles of running and three count 'em three weight workouts went down this week. It's week 9 of 10 of this speed plan.
I started working on my next running battle, which is hills. It's all very well to complain about them and now I'm ready to do something about it. I'm kinda following the hill sprints outlined in the half marathon plan in Run Faster from the 5k to the Marathon. I haven't figured out what plan I'm going to use for my upcoming races and hey by the way I need to figure that out soon b/c guess what's coming up next. By rights I should have done the sprints on Monday and Friday, but it rained so getting to the neighborhood hill would have meant a mud bath, so I deferred Monday's sprints to Wednesday. The exact days are going to be a little off as long as I continue to run outside in the mornings and that's fine, I'll get more precise once treadmill season starts (sniff). All I can tell you so far is that running 8 second sprints is very achievable and feels good.
Speaking of half marathons, I dropped some cash this week to sign up for half marathon #2 in late September and #3 in early November. The September race is a "for fun" effort and the November one is more serious. I have an eye open to see if I can still get some shorter races in this year as well.
Monday: 3 easy miles in the AM, weights at lunch
Tuesday: 5 miles in the rain (running in the rain is my favorite) including 5 x 3.5 minutes speed/3 minutes recover
Wednesday: 3 easy miles including 3 hill sprints/weights at lunch
Thursday: 5 miles including 10 x 1 minute speed/1 minute recovery. The first time I did this workout I was on the treadmill where 10 x anything is so tedious and goes by sooo sloooowly. It blows my mind how fast a workout like this goes by off the treadmill.
Friday: 3 miles easy, hilly route with 3 hill sprints AND weights at lunch
Saturday: 8 miles total with 3 x 8 minutes speed/3 minutes recover. It was warmer than I would have liked and going in I had concerns about being able to get through the workout. Once I started it went by in a flash and the only thing I was aware of was the Garmin telling me when to start and stop the intervals.

Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. Love it and I'm taking my time with it while I wait for some new titles to come in from the library.
