Monday Running Update

mon r u
Last Week: 

  • Monday –  I worked all day at the NYS Bar Exam but managed to squeeze in a short run afterwards. The good news was that I ran on a new route. The bad news was that my legs were pretty tired.

around a college and a country club

  • Tuesday –  Second day at the Bar Exam and a long one it was. My only exercise was walking up and down the halls.
  • Wednesday – Rain forced me onto the treadmill.

4 miles…hated every minute.

  • Thursday – Another run after work. It rained all day but luckily it stopped at 6 pm so I didn’t have to get on the treadmill. Afterward walked the mall with my bff.

around the UAlbany campus

  • Friday –  A normal work day followed by an evening of mah jongg. Rest Day!!
  • Saturday – My 12 mile run was split with running the first 6 with Barbara (who tired me out) and the last 6 with Judy. It was harder than last week but I guess some runs are like that.

Went to a Chinese New Year’s party in the evening – lots of food and drink – well deserved.

quick clean up after my run

  • Sunday – A picnic at the marina with our boating friends.  We celebrated it being only 3 months until Memorial Day.

Mimosas on the lake…anxiously awaiting boating season

On the way home, I dropped my hubby off at tennis and squeezed in a couple of miles before the sun set. It was 55 degrees.  I had to do it!!

24 miles done with 5 runs and 2 rest days.

  1. I run to Siena all the time. It’s like your rail trail — downhill there, uphill back.But a lot of concrete for me (although much better since they put in sidewalks a few yrs ago.

    I didn’t run yesterday. Errands & dog walking & my ankle was a little sore (no sorer than last week, and feels good today; it’ll just take a while to get back to normal — I think).

    Feel free to invite Barb to tea, too. Although then you’ll have to run with her again. 🙂


  2. My treadmill set up looks like that with the ipad too 🙂 I don’t know that I could make it on there without shows on the ipad to keep me occupied. My half marathon is in two weeks as well. Which one are you doing?


  3. Sounds like a great week of workouts! When we lived in Fairfax, our neighbors owned a Chinese restaurant and they invited us to their annual private Chinese New Year celebration. I still remember the food being absolutely incredible and very unlike the normal Chinese food.

    We’ve been lucky here that our weather has been pretty mild lately so I’m taking advantage of the sunny days to get outside and get some vitamin D!


    • A half on March 13 and then I registered for one on May 29 & Sept 24. But don’t be surprised if I run one on April 24 and one in August.


  4. You clean up nice Darlene! Just the other day, I was just calculating how long it would be before we would go to the lake and water ski. It’s less than 90 days, hopefully. If I was desperate, I could buy a new wet suit I guess. I think the water is in the low 60s right now. Brrr. I have another half when you do! Thanks for linking with us.


  5. You do so much running outside I forget you have a treadmill! 🙂 It’s so good to have friends to help you with the runs. I like how you tag team them. 🙂 Thanks Darlene for your support have an awesome rest of the week, omg it is already the weekend just about!
