Monday Running Update


Last Week:

  • Monday – Back in the frigid NE.  I decided to squeeze in a run before tennis because the rest of the week looked even worse weather-wise.  Although it snowed Sunday night, the path is always cleared at UAlbany.

it was nice until the sleet & freezing rain started- ouch!

  • Tuesday – I was scheduled to play tennis again so I decided to skip the run and went shopping instead.
  • Wednesday – Another busy day but I was able to squeeze a run into before our STEM celebratory dinner.


  • Thursday– Colder and windier.  I wimped out and cancelled my run with Alyssa and went shopping. Good News!! The battery in my iPhone (it kept shutting off when it got cold – hello I run in the winter!!) is defective and they replaced it for free!!! 3 hours in the mall without a phone = torture!
  • Friday – Rest day #3.  I celebrated by mentee’s birthday at Canvas, Corks & Forks. We ate (mac n cheese bar), drank, painted and laughed.  Then went out for dessert.

  • Saturday – Rest day #4. Total slacker. Snow, sleet, rain. A day to start addressing those holiday cards and wrapping the presents.

I always make my cards – obviously there was boating theme this year

In the evening, we had our annual tennis ladies party. Always a fun time!!

  • Sunday – Started the day with brunch with Judy & 2 other running friends.

they may have talked me into a fall half marathon

After doing some errands, I braved the cold and wind and ran 6 miles.

my favorite rail trail has too many patches of ice 😦

Then in the evening, went out for appetizers and drinks with a friend. (Maybe I should have run more than 6 miles LOL)

12 miles done with 3 runs and 4 rest days (Still on a training break)

This Week:

  • Monday – rest day, tennis
  • Tuesday – 4 mile run
  • Wednesday – rest day, dinner with a friend
  • Thursday – 4 mile run
  • Friday – rest day, mah jongg
  • Saturday – 6 mile run, lights in the park with Amanda & sons
  • Sunday – rest day, holiday with the fam

    • How true. I only wear my Yaks in the snow. I may be doing all my runs at UAlbany if we have a snowy winter.

      I still hesitate to run over ice. The trails are useless because no one shovels.

  1. That is great you are still being consistent! I want to be but the aches are keeping me down for now. It would be very tough to motivate when it is all snowy, I am very fearful if ice, be careful in it!!
    Looks like you had a lot fun social stuff this week! The painting looks great.


  2. What a busy week! And yes the weather looks dismal – for me roads and ice don’t mix. I don’t mind running on a frosty field or trail. You still managed to get 14miles under your belt I added up!


  3. I love the boating themed holiday card! I can’t imagine it would be difficult to talk you into a half marathon 😉 Well, you just had a big ol’ fun week of parties and food and entertainment. Totally jealous! I’ve always wanted to do the paint & drink art thing but our studio closed years ago. Thanks for linking, Darlene.
