Monday Running Update

mon r u
Last Week: 

  • Monday –  Took my morning walk around work and then knit on the exercise bike. After work, it was cold and windy but still ventured out for a run before visiting a friend (the one who just had a mastectomy.)

  • Tuesday – We had a huge holiday brunch for the whole school. Took my afternoon walk around work. After work, I played tennis and went out to dinner after.
  • Wednesday – Today we had another holiday lunch with my dept at work. The weather was even colder and windy.  I still got out to run after work but my hands were frozen and I stopped after 3 miles.


  • Thursday – Just work today – truly a rest day.
  • Friday – Warmed up to the 30’s (heat wave!) so did my after work run followed by an evening of mah jongg games.

  • Saturday – Rain & sleet in the am so glad to be enjoying a rest day. After lots of housework, got bored so went out to do some retail therapy – bought stuff that I didn’t really need but got GREAT deals.

I have a sock obsession – notice that the $40 socks cost a penny and I saved $73.63.

  • Sunday – Another free race – I ran the 15K and followed it with a few more miles.

  1. Happy Anniversary! The martini looks so yummy. Congrats on your 15k course PR! I have signed up for a half in March. That is the only thing on my schedule so far. I tried to run a couple of miles yesterday but my knee wasn’t ready yet. It’s pretty cold here this week but it looks like I’ll be on the indoor bike trainer. Thanks for linking with us Darlene. Your half is almost here!


  2. I did some retail therapy on Saturday, too! I did a short outside run (to show Momma N who is boss), and then headed to the mall (an hour away). Found some great bargains (again) at Old Navy…that I really didn’t “need” LOL


    • Yes Old Navy does have good buys. I got mine at Peter Harris, Macys & Nordstrom Rack. All places I never go. I usually shop at Marshalls.


  3. Looks like a great week of running! Kudos for getting out in that cold. Congrats on the 15K course PR! I love bargain hunting, especially for running stuff. I got 8 pairs of Brooks socks last summer for less than $20! Happy belated Anniversary!
