Weekly Meals and Workouts 53

Happy Sunday everyone. How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. I started my half marathon training today. And, guess what. It SUCKED! Try running 8 miles in cold, foggy, windy weather. No wonder why I love waking up early in the summer and going out for a run. In the winter, it’s cold and you don’t want to get out of bed! I now know the difference between training for a half marathon in the summer and in the winter.

Seriously, my hands were turning red (probably should have worn gloves) and it felt like my airways were being trapped. I don’t know. I braved the cold for 6.5 miles and then I went home and ran 1.5 miles on the treadmill to finish off my 8 mile run. It’s funny too, because I bought new running clothes for this weather. Long running pants, long sleeved running shirt, and a new sports bra. Hopefully, I’ll adjust to running outside in the cold.

Anyway, here’s my plan for the week.

1-18-15 Meal Plan

 

I never really tell you guys what sort of protein or veggies I eat. Generally, my sources of protein are chickpeas, tofu, eggs, vegetarian fake meat, seafood, and sometimes chicken. I don’t eat meat that much. I only eat it when I’m eating with my family and they tell me to eat it. Even then, I don’t eat pork. It’s really hard in an Asian family to be vegetarian, which is what I want to be.  Vegetables include cauliflower, broccoli, green beans, spinach, eggplant, and other vegetables that I don’t know the English names of.

Workouts

Sunday-   8 mile run

Monday-    4 mile interval run

Tuesday-  strength

Wednesday-  6 mile tempo

Thursday- Hill Runs

Friday- 6 mile slow jog

Saturday- yoga

After each run, I’ll do some body weight exercises for strength, I’ll stretch, and I’ll do some foam rolling.

I guess that’s it! Wish me luck on getting used to running in the cold.

What’s your plan for the week?

Do you have any suggestions in running in the cold?
