What we’re eating this week

by lachicaruns on

Spent the morning with my runner friends for what I thought would be a four- or five-mile run.

Our usual route is pretty flat with a few small hills, including a pedestrian bridge near Potter Park Zoo.

We, of course, went out that far, added another mile-and-a-half of hills at the local cemetery and ran back for about 9.5 miles total.

Did I mention there were hills?

Thankfully, we also got to go down hills.

When we got back, my friends insisted on heading up the local sledding hill. Notice I’m not in the pictures I shot from afar.

Because they apparently had not done enough hill work.

In related news, I’m in search for new running friends.

Despite my best intentions, I’ve not napped yet today but instead am headed out soon to go clothes-shopping with my favorite 16-year-old. I may give her my credit card and take a nap in the car instead.

I did, however, plan out our meals for this coming week. And here’s how I make my meal plan in the first place.

How’s your training going? What’s your goal race? Do your friends “make” you run father than you had planned or rope you into hill work or is it just mine?

My name is Gisgie. It's pronounced geese (like the birds) and gee (like the letter). Now that we've met, I'm glad you're here. I'm an injury-prone runner who manages to find reasons to keep coming back to the road despite ongoing challenges. Most recently, I've struggled with piriformis syndrome. I'm currently winning. Most days.

You’re running friends are too precious to replace.
Everything sounds good. I haven’t thought about the place for the week yet, there’s some great ideas here.
