Weekly Meal & Workout Plan: Oct 13-19

Hi friends! How is your weekend going so far? I can’t believe I am in my final week of half-marathon training. Crazy!

I have my last long run today — hopefully. For the first time, I am actually feeling a bit nervous. My knees were bothering me on my run Friday morning. Of course this happens now… but I am trying to stay positive, listen to my body and have confidence that my training up until this point has prepared me. Hoping I feel okay today but if I don’t I am not going to push it and rest. Oh and it’s obviously raining. Obviously.

Anyways, this week consists of lots of rest, short runs and yoga… oh and foooooood. Starting with Thanksgiving dinner tonight.


Weekly plan



  • Pancakes, oatmeal, quinoa flakes- breakfast
  • Lentil and butternut squash spinach salad – lunch
  • Quick bake flat bread
    – snacking
  • Turkey leftovers and veggies – dinner
  • Something in our new crockpot… yay! – recipe TBD – dinner
  • Breakfast for dinner



Sunday: Run: 15km — hope so!

Monday: Recovery run

Tuesday: Yoga

Wednesday: Short run

Thursday: OFF

Friday: Yoga

Saturday: OFF



Tonight we are having our Thanksgiving dinner so after my run I am going to help out in the kitchen. I’ve reserved most of my food prep for tomorrow (no work yay!) so I’ll prepare my lunches and prep veggies.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone… gobble gobble!


Questions of the day… 

What are you up to this weekend?

Are you having your Thanksgiving dinner tonight? Tell me about it!

  1. Cranky knees are the worst! My tip is to blast them with cold water and ice them with a bag of frozen fruit/peas post-run! Staying positive helps too (but you’ve got that covered ;) )!
    Tonight is thanksgiving dinner number 2; tons of delicious items are on the menu!

  2. So sorry that your knees were hurting today, as I saw on Instagram :(. You ARE prepared and you’re going to rock the half – I hope you use this week to REST as much as possible, and ice those knees. Seriously, no need to push the training at this point!!! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Argh that blows about the knees- although I’m sure with adequate rest and not over-doing it this week you’ll be pumped and ready for it on Sunday- you can do it champion!

    I will be trying out the hemp protein powder in a pancake recipe this week…hoping it works! Enjoy the dinner tonight :)
