Monday Running Update

mon r u
Last Week: 

  • Monday –  Decided to spend the night at my friend’s house on the Schroon River. and woke up to perfect running weather (finally).  Too bad, my legs were sooo tired.


They weren’t too tired to go for a hike.  I climbed to the top of Meade and Beckman Mountains.


hardest of the 7 hikes that I have completed in the Chester Challenge but totally worth it. I even met the owner of the property.

I spent the rest of the day sitting by the river and knitting before heading home.

  • Tuesday – played tennis in the am and then we celebrated the summer with a pizza party. I played tennis again in the evening. Got lucky. It rained in between.
  • Wednesday – ran with Barbara in the am. It was great catching in up since we hadn’t seen each other in a while.

new Nikes – so far so good.

I walked the mall with my bff in the afternoon. In the evening, played mini golf with my tennis buds followed by dinner out.

we are better at tennis than golf LOL but it was fun

  • Thursday – subbed in a new tennis group in the am. Spent the afternoon in the pool with some tennis friends.

Met Alyssa for a run in the evening.

rained before we started and then more humid than ever

Then met an old friend at a local wine bar. These days are busy. Good thing I’m not employed. LOL


  • Friday – played in a tennis robin for 3 hours. It was nice playing on clay for a change.

No running today. Just some errands including a car appt. Spent the evening playing major jongg.

  • Saturday – Ran a 5k race today. Felt lousy and didn’t run well.

the only good thing was wining my age group

So after the race, instead of my planned 7 miles, I drove up to the lake. My hubby brought a friend.  We (or they) jumped off cliffs, rode around in the boat, hung out in the bay and hiked (me and his friend) to a waterfalls.

Still feeling under the weather, I drove home instead of going out to dinner and spending the night on the boat.

  • Sunday – a real REST day.  The first one in many weeks – no running, no hiking, no tennis….

15 miles done with 4 runs and 3 rest days.

This Week:  

  • Monday 10 mile run,
  • Tuesday – AM tennis, rest
  • Wednesday4 mile run with a friend
  • Thursday –  AM tennis, 4 mile run, hair appt
  • Friday –  AM tennis, rest

    • A little of both – didn’t feel great on Sunday but ok today. We’ll see about those long runs. I may postpone the next one until Monday again.


  1. I can’t believe how busy you stay. Congrats on your age group placement at the 5k. I’m sorry you weren’t feeling well though. I’m glad you took a rest day. You needed it. I think I would draw the line at cliff diving. Yep, I’d have to pass on that one. Thanks for linking, Darlene!
