Monday Running Update

mon r u
Last Week: 

  • Monday – Day off from work.  I could have gone up to the lake with my hubby but I just needed a day off to catch up – unpacking, laundry, grocery shopping, weeding, DVR, reading… TIME ALONE aaahhhh!!!
  • Tuesday – Back to the normal routine.  Walk to the park at work, a short recovery run after work and then dinner out with a co-worker.

  • Wednesday –  National Running Day! I had several opportunities to run today. I wanted to run with the STEM runners but since I missed my Freihofer Training group run last week, I decided to run with them one last time. I was very hot and I was very tired.  Luckily our coach was not there so I could slack off on the 1 minute sprints.

Afterwards, I attended the GOTR thank you reception.  I even won a raffle prize.

  • Thursday – REST day and it was needed.  I walked at lunch and then walked around the mall with my BFF after work.
  • Friday – Another REST day – yes, two in a row.  What a slacker.  I walked to get my race packet and after dinner, I played mah jongg.


  • Saturday – Ran the Freihofer’s Run for Women 5k for the 9th time. It was hotter than expected but still fun running a race where you know so many runners.

28:50 (recovered after a slow first 2 miles)

Afterward I ran 4 more miles (reluctantly) on the rail trail.


  • Sunday – This was supposed to be a boating day but the weather had different ideas so it was a day to catch up on stuff around the house.

12 miles done with 3 runs and 4 rest days. (recovery week!)

This Week:  

  • Monday – 4 mile run
  • Tuesday – rest, tennis
  •  Wednesday STEM run (3 miles)
  • Thursday –  rest
  • Friday – 4 mile run, mah jongg
  • Saturday – rest, boating?
  • Sunday 5k race (with STEM) + 5 more miles
Once again, I am linking up for the Weekly Wrap hosted by Holly @ HoHoRuns and Tricia @ MissSippiPiddlin.   See rules here.

Happy Running! How is your running going?  Any races?

  1. I had alot of rest days this week too and while they were unplanned, my leg/foot really needed them. You did a great job this week and sometimes resting is more important than doing something that might cause an injury.


    • I hope your leg is ok. I know rest is important but I feel lazy when I don’t do anything. I need to get that bike out.


  2. Great week Darlene it’s ok to rest, I know it’s hard for me too I feel like a slacker too. I don’t think we have a chapter here but I need to check and see if we have a GOTR for sure. It’s a great organization.
    9th time to run this huh, is this the longest running race you attend?


  3. Congrats on the 5k and a great finish time in a hot race. I can’t imagine running a 5k right now. I’m in FL this week and the feels like temp was already 90 at 8 this morning. Ugh. It’s much cooler on my bike. I hope you get to go boating this weekend! Thanks for your support of the WW Darlene!
