Monday Running Update


Last Week:

  • Monday – I was so tired after my weekend but I dragged myself planning to go to my Troy Turkey Trot training group run after work (We are now at a new location – RPI campus). We did 8 X 1 min at race pace.  It was tough but as usual, I am glad I went.

I think we only did 3 miles this week.

  • Tuesday – After work I voted and then played tennis and went out to dinner. I hate that it gets dark so early!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Wednesday – With Barbara injured, Alyssa away and STEM cancelled, I had to run solo. It was cold and raining so I could only motivate myself to do one loop of the campus.

  • Thursday – A scheduled rest day so I walked at lunch and then in the mall after work with my BFF.

my first holiday cup of the season

  • Friday – I had the day off from work so why not a 5k. It wasn’t that cold but the nasty wind made it feel that way.  Still had fun running with friends and winning my age group (a glass & $15 gift card to Fleet Feet.)

27:51 finish time with an untied shoe and wind in my face 🙂

  • Saturday – Another rest day and time to catch up on the household chores that got ignored last weekend. I also picked up my bib for the race the next day and spent all my race winning gift cards ($25 at LL Bean, $10 at Fleet Feet & $50 at Recovery Room restaurant.)
  • Sunday – My favorite 15k race – the Stockade-athon.  I ran it for 5th time. Stomach issues during mile 3-4 prevented me from a PR, but still enjoyed the race. I met so many friends as well as, Ed Whitlock!!!

1:32:49 ( I plan to stick to pizza for my pre-race meal)

18 miles done with 4 runs and 3 rest days.

This Week:

  • Monday – train to NYC, run when I get there?
  • Tuesday – work in NYC (rain predicted)
  • Wednesday – work in NYC, run before work?
  • Thursday – work in NYC, run during lunch?
  • Friday – work in NYC, train home
  • Saturday – 5k race with STEM + more miles
  • Sunday – Turkey RaffAl Run?, mah jongg anniversary dinner

  1. I thought I wanted to get in a real long run on Sunday, but the weather is looking nasty right now. Ugh. And probably won’t do it friday it’s difficult to get out that long when it’s just me because of Bandit.

    Today is so beautiful, I really want to run, but I’ve had this on & off weird pain on one leg so I know that I’m better off taking a few days off running. Today is just perfect. See, just cause you don’t work doesn’t always mean you get to do what you want to do!


  2. You are spending a lot of time in NYC for work. Sounds like a great perk. Are you loving it or do you not like the travel ? (or is that a stupid question…duh its NYC !)


  3. That is a super speedy 5k time! Congrats. I’ve never run a 15k. There’s only one around here that I know of and I’m not sure they even had it this year. I’ll have to find us a good pasta/pizza place in PCB for Friday night’s meal! Have fun in NYC this week. Thanks for linking, Darlene!


  4. Yay on the AG award! Hey a gift certificate at Fleet Feet fits just perfect! Well really they fit anywhere! What did you end up getting? Wind makes such a huge difference, I’m afraid I’ll be dealing with it in my half this weekend, we have a cool front coming through!
