Hope you all are enjoying a lovely day with family. I'm off to run the Las Vegas Strip in my Christmas hat. More on that next Sunday. :-)
In the meantime, here is my recap of last week.
Today was a benchmark run. It's a 7 minute warm-up, 3 minutes as fast as you can, and a 5 minute cool-down. It felt great, despite being sore from volunteering on Saturday (link is a video). My app didn't break it down into splits, but I think I ran this a little faster than the previous benchmark run a couple weeks ago. #RWRunStreak Day 25.
Monday, 12/19REST DAY! So, it was just a cold mile with Sallie. It was only 30F here in Vegas, so I had to bundle up extra warm since Sallie likes to take a lot of breaks to sniff and pee and poo. #RWRunStreak Day 26.
Tuesday, 12/20My vacation started today, so it was nice to be able to run in the daylight! I ran 200m intervals with a 2:45 walk break between each. Interval #5 was a 6'56" pace. What the what?! A pace like that makes me think that maybe my app miscalculated. 😂
Wednesday, 12/21My 12 year wedding anniversary! 😍
Jeff had gone out before me but forgot to drop off the RedBox movies, so I ran an easy mile with Sallie to return them. He said it was super cold out, but it wasn't that bad. I was a bit overdressed. LOL. #RWRunStreak Day 28.
After my run, I did a Nike workout. Burpees, Bounds, and Bridges. It was a tough 30 minutes that left me shaking and dripping with sweat. Oh yeah!
It was a pretty casual day complete with a nap and some cookie baking. Then I got all dolled up for dinner at Silk Road Asian Bistro.
I really love how my hair, nails, and make-up turned out!
Thursday, 12/22Just another nice, easy mile with Sallie. #RWRunStreak Day 29.
Friday, 12/23#RWRunStreak Day 30 was a tempo run. I didn't sleep well the night before and my eyeballs still felt tired when I headed out for my run. I wasn't expecting much from the run, so imagine my surprise when the 9'09" pace seemed like a breeze! My goal pace was a 10'06" but I couldn't go any slower than I was going. 😎
Saturday, 12/24#RWRunStreak Day 31. Just an easy one-miler.
And then, Jeff and I took Sallie up the mountain to play in some snow for Christmas Eve!
Do you work out more or less when you're not working?
