Well, it’s finally here! My last week of training for the Las Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon! I am super excited!
Unfortunately, I was not able to run my 10 miler last week as planned. My achy right knee turned into a very sore knee so I decided I would forgo the 10 miler with hopes of returning my knee to its normal state before race day. I have been resting it, icing it, taping it, and even foam rolling my leg to help relieve the pain. I am trying to stay optimistic that everything will work itself out in time for race day. I can tell you one thing for sure, I WILL cross that finish line one way or another! Whether I run across, walk across or crawl across. I know it sounds pretty extreme but I have invested a lot of time and money into this race and I am determined to complete it.
With that being said I am going to listen to my body and do what is best for me knee during this last week of training.
Here is my plan for the week if my knee is feeling better.
Sunday: Rest Day.
Monday: Pilates DVD.
Tuesday: 4 Mile Run.
Wednesday: 3 Mile Run.
Thursday: 2 Mile Run.
Friday: Rest Day.
Saturday: Rest Day & Garth Brooks Day!
Sunday: Race day!
On this last week of training I wanted to thank everyone for their support and words of encouragement! It has meant a lot to me! If you are interested in tracking my progress on race day, you can sign-up here to do so. The tracking program does cost a couple bucks, so I certainly don’t expect anyone to sign up for it. But if you do you will receive periodic texts to your cell phone updating you on my progress in my first half marathon. And of course, I will do a recap of the race on my blog once I get settled back in Michigan!
