Monday Running Update


Last Week:

  • Monday – I took the train to NYC (I had to go there for work), ditched my luggage at my hotel and took off for a walk, some ice cream and a run.  My hotel was a mile from the Hudson so I decided to run in that direction. It’s quite a challenge running on the crowded sidewalks and stopping at every corner.

Walking around Madison Square Park


Running on the Hudson River Greenway & then the High Line

  • Tuesday – I walked to and from the training that I would be watching all week. After the training, I changed into my running clothes and got in a run before it got dark. Then I went out to dinner (at a Greek restaurant) with 2 co-workers and to a costume exhibit at FIT.

  • Wednesday – More  of the same. A short walk at lunch and then a run after work. Today I decided to run to Battery Park (and it was much farther than I thought. ) I took a ride on the sea glass carousel and then took the subway back to the hotel.

  • Thursday – A rainy day. A short lunch walk in the rain but NO after  work run.  Instead I walked in the pouring rain to Times Square, got cheap tix to a show, had dinner, saw the show and walked back to the hotel in the rain. Lots of steps.

  • Friday – My last work day in the city. I changed into my running clothes and ran along the East River during lunch. Cool and windy but so needed.

  • Saturday –  I had a planned day at Ellms Family Farms with my mentee and her two sons. Not the best weather. Cold damp windy. I guess it was a rest day but running after 2 young kids all day was fun but not restful.

  • Sunday – It was an exhausting week.  I was tired so I decided not to run a race.  I know “Shocking.” Instead I decided to do a Long Run. Again a sunny day would have been nice but the temps were perfect. Unfortunately I was overdressed and underfueled but I chose my favorite location and got it done..

It was a struggle but some runs are like that.

I was starved. I ate this after chicken dumpling soup.  The sticky bun at Leah’s didn’t disappoint.

25 miles done with 5 runs and 2 rest days.

This Week:

  • Monday – Troy Turkey Trot Training group run (3-4 miles)
  • Tuesday – tennis
  • Wednesday – run + STEM (8 miles)
  • Thursday – hair appt
  • Friday – train to NYC
  • Saturday – 5K race (in NYC) + more miles?
  • Sunday – rest or a long run

Happy Running! How is your running going?

  1. You didn’t race? Does not compute…does not compute…LOL. It looks like a pretty 10 miler though! I bet you really enjoyed your time in NYC. You managed to pack in a lot of fun things! Wow, I love the sunset pic from your hotel. Thanks for linking, Darlene. See you next month!
