weekly menu: week 19

well, it's that week.  the week i've been dreading and excited for at the same time.  saturday i will run my first half marathon.  excuse me while i throw up.  can you feel my fingers shaking as i type this?

what makes this week even more exciting is that my runs are the easiest they have been since we started training in january.  the hard work is done.  now it's time to let my body rest and refuel. it's also the week i get to carbo load.  the first part of the week we fuel up on protein.  and then before the race we eat carbs. best of both worlds.

making this week:
monday:  turkey cobb salad
tuesday: chicken sausage with quinoa and vegetables
wednesday:  soba noodles with  peanut sauce and shrimp
thursday:  pasta with cheese sauce
friday:  pizza
saturday:  post-run dinner 
sunday:  mother's day 

baking this week:
lemon-blueberry buttermilk muffins - looking for recipes that are carb loaded but still healthy. i may continue to run like this just so i can eat what i want.

have a great week!
