4 Bridges Training {Week 5} + Meal Plan

Another week of training down! I can’t believe how fast time is flying. The race on October 19th will be here before I know it.  I completed all of the runs for Week 4, but I didn’t do any strength training or cross training last week. Whomp, whomp. I’m definitely more of a cardio person when it comes to exercising, whereas Derek prefers strength training. I’m hoping he can help get me motivated to complete my strength and cross training this week. Maybe I’ll get him out for a run this week too.

If you’re interested in my training posts/meal plans from previous weeks please see the following links: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, and Week 4. On to week 5!

4 Bridges Training {Week 4} + Meal Plan

Another week of training down! I completed all of my runs last week, though I had to shift them around a bit due to weather. In typical North Carolina fashion, the weather changed from burning hot and sunny to severe thunderstorms in a matter of minutes last Tuesday. I opted not to run during the monsoon. I also stuck to the meal plan pretty well. The only meal I shifted over to this week was Saturday’s steak and asparagus stir-fry because we ended up eating snacks for dinner instead. Overall a pretty good week!

4 Bridges Training {Week 3} + Meal Plan

So last week’s training wasn’t great. I walked 2-3 miles per day, but the only run I completed was Sunday’s long run. Now that life is getting back to normal, I think I can get back on track this week. I also decided to start posting my weekly meal plans. I make one every week, and I figured why not share it?
