We had a long run to complete and wanted to go out together.
The kids wanted to ride their bikes with us.
It was so fun to have them join us for the first 6.5 miles of our run. I think Cannon would have ridden all ten miles but it was so windy I think he got sick of it. I do think that this year we finally have good winter gear so we can keep being outside in the cold.
When we got home I took the kids to the basement playroom where I could finish my ten miles on the treadmill.
I bought a new pair of Hokas to get me through this marathon in May.
In the afternoon we had some family friends over for dinner and games. It’s so nice to have friends that have kids that our kids love like cousins.
I thought I might start sharing our meal plans for the week, since sometimes it’s nice to see what others are doing. It’s always a little bit of a chore to try to figure out what to eat for the week but nice to have a plan. We sometimes assign meals to days in advance and sometimes just plan out seven meals and choose each night what works or sounds good. I will link recipes when I can.
This weeks’ list:
- Grilled cheese and soup
- Salmon Cakes and salad
- Crockpot BB chicken with sweet potatoes
- Dip sandwiches for game night with friends
- Veggie burgers with fries and veggies
- Fish n’ chips
- Spaghetti + Meatballs and salad.
Ever had to get creative to fit your training in? As our runs get longer we will have to change things up again.
What are your favorite meals from the week? Do you meal plan or just figure it out as you go?
