Monday Running Update

mon r u
Last Week: 

  • Monday –  I stayed up at Bolton Landing (on Lake George) today.  Started the day with a scenic 7 mile run.


Then went for two hikes.  My first solo hikes and they were awesome.



  • Tuesday –  Today I played tennis twice.  I subbed in a new group near my house (walked to the courts) and then played with my usual Tuesday evening group.
  • Wednesday –  In the morning, I played tennis in my 2nd country club robin-robin. It was cool, windy and even rained.


The weather cleared up later in the day and I went for a run on the rail trail with Alyssa, a new running friend.


a very speed non-stop run – she pushed me but she said I pushed her.

  • Thursday – Morning tennis with my Troy Tennis group and dinner out with a former co-worker.

I talked my friend into a 4 mile walk after dinner (She may no longer be my friend LOL)

  • Friday – An exciting day in NYC. Thanks Judy for letting me plan your crazy day.  We took the train to the city, checked our bag in Macys, hopped the subway to Central Park, had a quick lunch and ran 4 miles through the park with a tour guide.

great way to learn about the history of the park and get in some exercise

After the tour, I had ice cream, then we walked some more in the park, went to the zoo, walked ALL the way back to Macys, changed our clothes and had dinner at a cute restaurant with French running blogger, Karen before heading back home on the train.


  • Saturday – Definitely a rest day filled with errands, laundry, housework, etc.
  • Sunday – Today I ran the Adirondack Distance Race – 10 miles from Lake George to Bolton Landing

it was hilly. it was hot. my feet hurt but i still enjoyed the race.

The rest of the day was spent on the lake!!

25 miles done with 4 runs and 3 rest days.

  1. Nice job Darlene, you really did alot this week exercise wise. And how fun to go to NYC with Judy and then meet Karen for dinner. Sounds like a great week.


  2. You had a very busy and active week.
    Loved meeting up ! Thanks for suggesting it. I was so happy we had great weather. Maybe next time we can run in the park together. Now I want to do a running tour !


    • Yes loved meeting you. I want to do a running tour of Paris. You will be running in Central Park again – the last few miles of your 26.2!!!


  3. Y’all had such an exciting day in NYC! Oh how I’d love a running tour of Central Park. How fun to meet Karen too. I think I would have been laying in that lake after a hot 10 miler, not just standing ankle deep. 😉 Are you enjoying the extra free time you have right now? I know I would be. It looks like you are staying very busy. Thanks for linking Darlene.


    • Not enjoying because I need to find a job. It would be different if I really were on vacation.

      And I would have jumped in if I didn’t have my phone.
