The two things I need to do at the beginning of every week are plan our meals and my runs. Life seems a little smoother when those two things are handled ahead of time!
Eat: Stew in the crockpot. I had some leftover venison and broth when I canned last weekend. It is patiently waiting to be cooked up with carrots and potatoes. Yum
Run: Two and a half miles at lunch. If I hustle, I could get in three.
Eat: Burritos. I was smart last weekend and pre-made about two dinners' worth. Yeehaw!
Run: Easy two miles at lunch.
Eat: At the church. I love that they feed us on Wednesdays!
Run: Easy mile on the track with a friend and some stairs if I can fit them in.
Eat: Salmon patties and coleslaw. Homemade tartar sauce.
Run: Rest if I've ran all week. Two miles at lunch if I skip a day. I shouldn't be so flexible... but I'm not on a real plan right now, and it all revolves around my lunch break for the most part.
Eat: Pizza. There is potential of a sleepover... so the easier and more kid friendly, the better!
Run: Two miles at lunch. Easy.
Eat: Breakfast for dinner. I love breakfast for dinner.
Run: No time to run. Have a Christmas bazaar all day and housework/farm chores to catch up on when I get home.
Eat: Kids' Choice. This could end up being Top Ramen. We will see.
Run: Five miles after church. I am progressively returning to Long Run Sunday. I miss it. And I am bummed that five miles is my "long" run right now, and I have no one to blame but myself. So - here's to starting over. This time next year, I hope to have at least two more marathons under my belt... and maybe a 50k!! The thought makes me smile, which shows how crazy I am.
