RnR Las Vegas Training Week 1


This week not only did I start training for the Rock N Roll Las Vegas half, but I also started a TapouT challenge with a Facebook group my sister added me to. It feels good to have sore muscles and be tired at night again, but honestly it is a bit discouraging too since I don’t have the strength to do many of the moves. I have started the program 2 or 3 times and always end up quitting a week or two in. I am hoping that the challenge will help pull me through the 30 days and I’ll come out stronger on the other end.

But anyway, this is how my week looked:

Monday: Rest

Tuesday: 3 mile run

Wednesday: Rest

Thursday: 3 mile run & Cardio XT plus Abs XT

Friday: Sprawl & Brawl

Saturday: 4 mile long run & Competition Core

Sunday: Plyo XT

For the month of August I will be working out 6 days a week and doing doubles 3 of the days. Then starting next month, when the mileage gets higher, I want to cut it back to 5 days a week and start suspension training. 

Have you ever tried suspension training? What’s your favorite workout?


  1. 6 days a week?! You rock! You must tell me your secret for motivation!

    1. Ha! I have actually done a few programs that were all 6 days a week. I don't actually like it, but I do it. ;)
