I’m writing this post from Las Vegas! Soon I will be shopping, so I will try to keep this “Target Practice” post short.
Improve Pace - Monday involved the same HIIT treadmill work from last week and a new HIIT workout routine. I kid you not, I almost died! Both of these routines will get your heart rate going.
50 Push Ups – I am able to do 32 push ups without stopping! I’ll take any progress I can get!
Half Marathon – As you know from Monday’s post, I ran 7 miles uphill with the Pasadena Pacers on Saturday. I did stop to walk during some of the steep inclines, but overall I kept pace. Following my run with the Pacers, the Bear and I rode the beach cruisers through Malibu, Santa Monica, and Venice. I also ran with my lunch buddy, Marco, for 6 miles on the treadmill this Wednesday. That’s the longest I have ever ran on a treadmill. I normally get bored after 30 minutes. AND I got in a quick 3 mile run this morning on the strip!
Eating Clean - Ugh… pretty much a disaster considering I ate chili cheese fries and a hot dog from the Dog Haus on Sunday. I didn’t take a picture because I was too ashamed! Dog Haus aside, I ate okay this week. I even managed to lose weight…not sure how that happened considering I’m not even trying to lose weight anymore. I only weigh myself once in a while to make sure I’m maintaining my current weight. Anyhow… I had a delicious Mahi-Mahi sandwich after my 7 mile run and beach cruise on Saturday.
I also ate a lot of black bean quinoa salad this week. Yay for leftovers!
Next week, I will officially kick off my half-marathon training, scout’s honor! I plan to get back on track with eating clean, and push the pace even faster.
Now it’s time to enjoy what Las Vegas has to offer…pools, shows, and shopping!
Have a great weekend!
