Monday Running Update

mon r u
Last Week: 

  • Monday – I actually took a 15 min walk with a co-worker during the day.

on the track since it was warmer there

After work, I took a run in the park. My legs were still tired from Saturday but the weather was nice so… I just dragged myself through it.

still light enough to run in the park

  • Tuesday –  Just a work day followed by tennis in the evening (and wine & pizza, of course)

another 15 min. walk on the track

  • Wednesday – It appears that winter is back. The cold accompanied by 40 mph wind gusts.  No walking outside at work besides back and forth between buildings. This was not a fun after work run but I survived. Afterward, I had dinner with two co-workers and that was fun.

  • Thursday – Our 15 min walk in the morning has become a routine (2 days in a row) at work.  Otherwise it was just work and hair appointment after work.
  • Friday –  Another normal work day (morning 15 min walk & afternoon walk to Starbucks). A quick run after work followed by an evening of mah jongg.

It was very cold but wearing white  shoes & flowered capris made me think of spring

  • Saturday – My rest day!! Errands, housework, cooking…fun, fun, NOT!

Then I went to an expo. Signed up for 2 5ks and 1 half. Saved $22, got 3 shirts and met a running friend. Now that was fun.  

  • Sunday – My last long run before the big one. I met Judy & Barbara on the bike path but actually only ran with Barbara (when she wasn’t too fast for me.)


Afterwards, the three of us went out for High Tea (tea sandwiches, scone & pastries).


The day ended with a Downton Abbey viewing Party.

19 miles done with 4 runs and 3 rest days.

  1. Nice job on your runs! I like your new running shoes! The weather around here in Philly has been crazy going between warm and super cold, but I think we’re finally getting spring weather!


  2. Spring is not here yet… but its not too far off. We had cold weather, rain and even a bit of snow in Paris last week. That meant I had to run on the treadmill. Yuck.
    Pizza and wine sound good to me !


  3. Spring has arrived here and tomorrow it is supposed to reach 78 degrees! I was so sad that Downton Abbey ended last night, but the finale was really good. It was nice that everyone seemed happy and in a good place.


  4. I’ve been meaning to START watching Downton Abbey! Are you stalking the weather for your Sunday race yet? Mine is not looking the best. Can you believe I’ve never been to tea? I need to change that. Thanks for linking with us Darlene and good luck this weekend!
