Las Vegas HALF Rundown Week 17: 11/5-11/11

Happy Humpday! I’m heading back to work today and the post vacation blues are hitting me big time. Luckily, Thanksgiving is next Thursday so I can’t wait! I’m cooking a full dinner (turkey included this year ), so I’m excited. Anyone else cooking Thanksgiving this year?!? What traditions do you love to celebrate? The holidays are my favorite! Another thing I’m doing these next two weeks when I’m not running? Leaving my Garmin at home. No need to count my steps- I’m in full relaxation mode! 

Lets recap last week of training!


Monday, 11/4: 4.27 miles easy on the treadmill at 10:31 pace & Jumpboard Pilates class at lunch 


Tuesday, 11/5: 4.47 miles with .6 mile warm-up, 3 x 1/2 mile at 10k pace (2 min recovery), 3 x 1/2 mile at 5k pace (2 min recovery), .6 mile cool down. I only hit one of my paces for this workout and the roads were completely icy/snowy so I did take it easier than I would have (and still wasn’t feeling 100% better). Still happy to have pushed through!
