What’s for Dinner?

Rainbow Veggie Flatbread  - HappyFitMama.com

Just popping in for meal planning for the week. I can’t get enough of the grill right now. Turning on my oven does not even sound appealing even though the humidity has dropped quite a bit.

We’ve been loving grilled pizzas lately. The crust gets so crisp and the smokiness adds a nice flavor. I’m excited to try the rainbow flatbread grilled. It’s just so pretty!

Hills + Meal Planning

14 miler  HappyFitMama.com

Yesterday I did a 14 mile run.

It was my first non-racing 14 miler since either May or October 2013. It’s been awhile!

I did 5.5 miles on my own before meeting up with Kailey, Mariette and a local running group doing a preview run of the new Six03 Summerfest 10k course.

Let’s just say I ate HILLS for breakfast!

The course is definitely challenging especially with an out and back section that is the bulk of big rolling hills. At the turn around point you think, “Yay! Done with the hills.” But no, you get to repeat it all over again. Fittingly, the finish line sits at the top of the last big hill.

Good times.

My plan going into the run was to keep it an easy pace. I’m notorious for starting off too fast in races and all runs in general. I’m a champion positive spliter. I think it’s time I see what all this hoopla about negative splits is all about.

I’m very happy to say that I stayed right on pace for the whole run. Even with killer hills. While it wasn’t a negative split run, it was an almost perfectly executed on pace run. My goal was 8:30-8:45 and that is where I stayed. It meant pulling back from running with Kailey and Mariette but I stuck to my plan. I felt good. Really good. Although I was cursing the whole way as I trudged up the hills. One day I’ll embrace the hill like Sarah!

Alright, let’s talk meal planning for the week.

Monday: Sweet Potato and Mozzarella Egg Skillet

Tuesday: Chicken Veggie Meatballs with Pesto Zucchini Noodles

What are you – positive or negative spliter?
