Last Week's Workouts and Weekly Wrap 11/28-12/4

Last week went pretty good. Another week of some good runs without any sort of plan and the Runner's World run streak is going well. Streaking hasn't been a struggle for me yet so I am happy about that. It is crazy that it is already December. I ended November with 112 miles. 

Here's a recap of last week's workouts:

Davis Turkey Trot 5K Race Recap 11/19/16

Davis Turkey Trot 5K Race Recap 11/19/16
I ran my first Davis Turkey Trot a couple of weeks ago and it was a rainy but fun run. The best part of the race was running with my 7 year old! I am loving that he enjoys running. He has improved so much in the course of a year!

Last Week's Workouts and Weekly Wrap 11/21-11/27

It's been a great week off for the Kiddos for Thanksgiving break. I did catch up on some blogging and posted my recaps of Las Vegas for the 5K and half marathon. I got a bunch of runs in this week and I've decided I would give the Runner's World Run Streak a shot again this year. I attempted last year but could not finish due to a sick kiddo and Hubby out of town. Let's see if I can get it done this time! 

Here's a recap of last week's workouts:

Rock'n'Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon Race Recap 11/13/16

Rock'n'Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon Race Recap 11/13/16
I fulfilled my bucket list race of running the Rock'n'Roll Las Vegas half marathon! Despite having some issues in the last mile that I will get to below, it was an awesome experience running the Las Vegas strip. The strip only closes twice a year, one being New Year's Eve and the other this race, so it is very cool to participate in this run. The strip at night was so fun and I am so glad that I was able to complete the remix challenge.

Rock'n'Roll Las Vegas 5K Race Recap

Rock'n'Roll Las Vegas 5K Race Recap
I was pretty excited to be running the Rock'n'Roll Las Vegas Remix Challenge. For those that don't know what that is it's running a total of two races, a 5K on Saturday and a half marathon on Sunday. I was pretty psyched to to be running this challenge for the first time and in Vegas. I knew the Strip at night was going to be awesome! I was a bit worried about the runs being in the evening but it worked out ok, at least for the 5K.

Last Week's Workouts and Weekly Wrap 11/14-11/20

It was a pretty good week after last week's Las Vegas Remix Challenge. I took a couple of days off before running again. I was hoping to get some strength training in but the week was pretty busy with dentist appointments, helping at the kiddos bookfair. volunteering in their classes, and a stone soup celebration. Plus 7 year old had half day all week due to parent/teacher conferences. It was a packed week but at least I got some runs in. 

Here's a recap of last week's workouts:

Hiking Calico Tanks Trail at Red Rock Canyon

Hiking Calico Tanks Trail at Red Rock Canyon
Las Vegas can be more than casinos, bright lights, buffets, and shows. There is also some awesome hiking nearby. Where is this awesome hiking spot? It's at Red Rock Canyon. It's about a 30-40 minute drive depending where you are on the Vegas Strip or about 40 minutes from Henderson (where my parents house is). We headed straight to Red Rock Canyon after our long drive from Davis since it was the best day before I'd be doing the Remix Challenge for Rock'n'Roll Las Vegas.

Neutral Runner? Check out my Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Shoe Review


Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Shoe Review
This post is sponsored by Mizuno in partnership with Fitfluential. All opinions are my own.

Mizuno has come out with their 20th edition of its best selling shoe, the Wave Rider 20. I have tried Mizuno's once before, trying the Enigama 5's and thought they were a decent shoe to add to the rotation but they were heavier and I just did not stick with them. So when I was given the opportunity to try out these 20th Anniversary Wave Riders, I couldn't resist since I heard these were lighter weight shoes.

Hiking Stebbins Cold Canyon Blue Ridge Loop Trail

Hiking Stebbins Cold Canyon Blue Ridge Loop Trail
Now that AYSO soccer is over for the boys, we finally had a free Saturday. It had been a while since we hiked, so we figured we'd get one in with the fam again. We decided on hiking at Stebbins Cold Canyon Reserve on the Blue Ridge Trail. I had done part of the trail before but never the full loop. It turned out to be another great family adventure.

What a great weekend! Las Vegas was so much fun! The whole fam came. We were able to do lots the two and a half days we were there, we even managed a hike. I am so glad I was able to make this trip.
