- Monday – I arrived in NYC this afternoon for work. As soon as I checked into my hotel, I took off for a run. I headed toward the Hudson River. I planned on 3 miles but with all the stopping for lights and photo ops, it was 5 slow ones.
After dinner, since it was a warm evening, I went for a walk to Bryant Park and hung out there for awhile.
- Tuesday – It was pouring during my long walk to work. But it stopped so I could take a stroll during lunch.
That evening, I went out to dinner with some other trainers.
- Wednesday – I had left my work clothes at work the day before so that I could get up early and run along the East River before work. And it was amazing. I could have run forever but I had to return to work by 8 am 😦 )
After dinner (NYC pizza – yummy!), I walked to Times Square. I wanted to get cheap tix to The Big Comet, but when I found out that Josh Groban called in sick, I went next door and got tix for Dear Evan Hansen which was in previews. Great decision! The show as awesome (and tix were more than 50% off.)
- Thursday – Today I decided to bring running clothes to work so I could run during lunch. I ran the same place as Wednesday morning but a shorter route since I didn’t need to run as far to get to the river and I ran in the opposite direction.
I had still hopes of seeing Josh Groban but he was still sick. So I walked around Times Square, Rockefeller Center and Bryant Park… Taking in this warm weather and walking ops. (Returning to normal life soon! 😦 )
- Friday – Last day of work in NYC. No running today but a walk to/from work and a long one during lunch.
Then that evening, I took the train back home.
- Saturday – Today I went to a 5k that I would not be racing. Instead I would be helping a STEM runner complete her first 5k. Much more rewarding than any PR I’ve ever had.
When I was done, though I didn’t feel like it, I ran some more miles so this could count as a long run. Thanks Judy for the company on 7 of those miles.
- Sunday – Rest day and catching up after being away for 5 days. Good thing since it seems like winter arrived. That afternoon, I played mah jongg and int he evening, we all went out to dinner (Chinese of course) to celebrate out 8th anniversary of playing mah jongg together.
25.5 miles done with 4 runs and 3 rest days.
- Monday – last Troy Training Challenge Group Run (3-4 miles)
- Tuesday – 3 miles, tennis
- Wednesday – rest, mall walk with bff
- Thursday – 10K race followed by a 5K race
- Friday – rest, mah jongg
- Saturday – last long run (8-10 miles), hair appt
- Sunday – rest
Happy Running! How is your running going?
You managed to squeeze in an awful lot! I still don’t know how you do it (or why you ran 3 miles instead of 2 after I finished).
The weather this week is going to make life challenging! I will be on the treadmill today. It’s too cold to even take the dogs for a walk (although unfortunately I have to go grocery shopping).
I wasn’t tired since I ran at a relaxed pace so I did 3 instead of 2 and it was slow & interrupted too.
Yeah I don’t know if I will get my runs in this week. I hope at least the weekend will be ok for one more decent run.

You did great while staying in the city! It is nice the weather cooperated.
That is great you have been getting your long runs done…I am worried I may not get much running done before PCB!
they are not much in terms of long since they are so broken up but it is what it is. You just ran 26 miles. 13 will feel like a walk in the park.
busy week! I love Bryant park! Impressed you even worked in miles on a lunch break. WOW!
You do what you gotta do 🙂
So jealous of all your time in NYC. Are you liking your job? NYC is a great perk !
Loving NYC not the job. Unfortunately from now on I will be traveling upstate.
You’ve been in NYC quite a bit lately. I’ve enjoyed your pictures too. Do you have any more work trips scheduled there? I bet is it very rewarding to help someone with their first 5k. I wish I could be more involved but gosh — I feel so time crunched as it is. I hope we can all kick back and relax next weekend. See you soon. Thanks for linking, Darlene!
Nope. no more NYC work trips. I will be driving to places in upstate NY. Yes, it is great to see someone succeed at something they thought they could never do.
Yes I feel crunched but the STEM group fits into my schedule.
Looking forward to a post run margarita with you!
