In the meantime, let's check in with last week's workout and what I'm cooking up this week.
Monday - 5 miles. 51:16; 10:31 avg pace.
Tuesday - 6.25 miles. 1:11:45; 11:32 avg pace. I did 1 mile with Sallie, 2 miles with Jeff, and 3.25 solo. It was good, but my legs were tired and heavy.
Thursday - REST
Friday - 6.5 miles. 1:50:15; 16:40 avg pace. Nighttime trail run with George. Super fun, but a little slow (even for us) running the trails after dark. The area we ran has lots of trails and loops, and we only got a little lost once. Good thing Orion was shining brightly to help guide us back to our car. :)
Saturday - Run #1 - 5.5 miles. 54:00; 10:00 avg pace. Took Sallie with me for the first 2 miles. Skipped my tempo run earlier in the week, so I ran miles 2.25-5.25 at tempo pace. Felt good and strong. For the most part.
Run #2 - 4 miles. 39:42. Opted for the treadmill for the 2nd run of the day. I started really slow and then had to kill it in order to get in 4 miles under 40min. Felt great, though.
Sunday - REST
Miles on last week's schedule: 33
Actual miles last week: 27.25
Still a little shy of my goal mileage for the week, but at least it was much less of a gap that the prior week.
Total #FFMarchMiles: 95.25
Less than 5 miles to get to 100 miles in March!! Perfect for my 5 miler on Monday. :)
But I did manage to come up with a menu for this coming week.
Sunday - Out. Haven't decided on a restaurant yet, but somewhere new to us.
Monday - Lemon Sage Chicken and baked potatoes.
Tuesday - Dinner at The Aria after our friend's wedding.
Wednesday - Chicken and Rosemary Roasted Potatoes.
Thursday - Veggie Pizzas.
Friday - Probably something simple like baked potatoes or grilled sandwiches.
Saturday - TBD
I'm linking up with Laura over at Mommy Run Fast and Jill at Fitness, Health, & Happiness. Go check out what everyone else is cooking up this week.
I'm hoping to get some lunch prep done today + I'm currently in the process of making some coconut milk yogurt. Hope it turns out! It's a pretty long process, but thankfully once it start fermenting, it's pretty easy to multi-task while it does its thing in the yogurt maker.
Have you ever made your own yogurt?
