Weekly Meal & Workout Plan: Oct 27-Nov 2

Hi friends! It feels good to sit down and write out a meal and workout plan this week. I definitely feel a lot more on track when I have a schedule as my guide.

After my race, I have been taking it easy with yoga and cycling in order to recover and heal my knee. Well my knee still wasn’t feeling great so I saw my sports doctor on Friday for a check-up. Good news, bad news scenario…

Good: my knee has not gotten worse — still showing symptoms prepatellar bursitis (inflammation of the barsae sacs of the knee). Continue to cycle and do yoga in order to strengthen and heal.

Bad: no running, basketball or Crossfit for two weeks and after another check-up.

Things could be worse. I am itching to really SWEAT and feel those wonderful endorphins. So I’m going to try out some spinning classes (starting today!) and get my downward dog on in a 100 degree studio. That should do the trick. Of course I wish I could run, play and lift but I know that needs to wait and I’m thankful I have other options.

Other than that, I have a bunch of food prep to do today with some new recipes I’ve been meaning to try out. Weekly plan

  1. That’s great that your knee hasn’t gotten worse! Hopefully these two weeks off running will help it heal up. And at least you can still go to spin class. I call it spinning if it’s on the spin bikes, biking if am using my bike outside, and cycling when I see those really intense cyclists doing long rides out on the back country roads haha.

    That looks like such a good week of meals! I made those endurance crackers last summer and I really liked them. I really want to make Davida’s tabbouleh too!

  2. Yay for spinning and yoga! Focusing on what you -can- do is the best way to make healing time go by faster, and you’ll be lacing up those running shoes before you know it :)

    I call it spinning if it’s on spin bikes and biking if it’s out on the road on a regular bike.

    Happy Sunday, lovely!

  3. So sorry to hear that your knee has you out for a few weeks :( that really stinks but it’s so good you went back to get it checked out, I’m sure it would have been much worse otherwise. Enjoy spin this morning!

  4. Hopefully the two weeks off will help you heal up! And it’s great that you have some alternatives that you can do in the meantime…I actually like Spin classes a lot more than I thought I would. And although my gym calls them cycle classes, I think of them as spin.
    Hope you have an awesome Sunday!

  5. Oh no, I’m sorry about the bad news part, although I’m thrilled about the good news part. So many of my friends/ family seem to be injured right now, and it totally sucks :(. Kevin (my husband) is relying on indoor cycling + rowing, which is an awesome workout too, if it doesn’t hurt your knee! And I love hot yoga and need to get back into it! I call it “spinning” if I’m taking a class, and “cycling” if I’m riding outside, because it sounds cooler than “biking” :).

  6. Good to see your able to do something to get those endorphins rolling even though you’re abit limited- you’ll push through :)

    You’ll have to let me know how Davida’s tabbouleh turns out- I’m definitely going to give it a go- Sans Parsley urgh. Worst herb ever.
