Weekly Menu Plan–August 28, 2011

Today is a very exciting day for a friend of mine.  Beth, featured here as a gluten-free marathon runner, is competing today in her first Ironman in Louisville, KY.  I can’t even begin to tell you all how excited I am for Beth.  I have know Beth since high school and we reconnected a couple of years back.  In case you aren’t familiar with the Ironman, here is what the event entails:

  • 2.4 mile swim
  • 112 mile bike
  • 26.2 mile run

Yes, that is right, a marathon after the other 2 events.  As if the first 2 aren’t taxing enough, right?  I bow down to those that complete the Ironman.  Perhaps I can see if Beth would like to do a follow-up to share how she fueled before, during & after this event.  GO BETH!


I have been working on my disaster in my loft, so I haven’t done much else this weekend.  This is also taper time for my half marathon that is a week from today, so not as much activity scheduled for the week so I have time to get antsy & run like heck next week. 

Meal plan

Sunday – Chipotle – So, I might be addicted.  Rice has lots of carbs, right? 

Monday – Bourbon chicken, steamed broccoli & brown rice

Tuesday – Enchilada Bake, corn & salad

Wednesday – Baked Ziti, steamed green beans and salad

Thursday – Leftovers

Friday – Breakfast for dinner – pancakes, turkey bacon and fruit salad

Saturday – MYOP (moved this week so I can have the same meal before my race)
