I am trying to recreate some sense of order around my home, so I am going to begin with my week's plan of menus and miles.
peanut butter toast
fruit/spinach/protein smoothies (They taste way better than they sound!)
oatmeal or cereal
soup and salad
Friday: veggie burgers (I bought the patties from Costco.)
Saturday: white chili
Sunday: 15 bean soup
Monday: mashed potatoes, lentil loaf, peas
Tuesday: taco soup
Wednesday: burritos and Mexican rice
Thursday: black bean cakes, quinoa salad
I still have several more days until I am cleared to run. The official date is November 9 (three weeks post surgery). I may or may not run one day early. I have a busy day planned for Friday, and I am not sure that that will be the best day for my latest running debut. Prior to Thursday or Friday, I will walk.
I walked only 7.68 miles last week! In three separate sessions (2, 2, and 3.68--which took me one hour!). My goal for this week is to walk 30 minutes to one hour each day, Monday-Thursday. This week's actual marathon training plan (for my January Disney Marathon) is 37 total miles with a medium run of 8 and a long run of 17. Ha! My modified, realistic goal of total miles this week is 10.
Even though I am only walking, and walking very slowly, the exercise makes me feel so much better. I have never regretted a workout. Never. I only regret the days that I don't make myself get outside or on the treadmill and do it.
So that's my goal. 10 miles. I hope I can post next Saturday or Sunday and say that I met my goal.
You set a goal too!
