Running Update 12.19.16-12.25.17


Last Week:

  • Monday – Another cold day and I was glad that it was a rest day.  Played tennis (indoors) in the evening and then finished my Christmas shopping.
  • Tuesday – Had another holiday work gathering with lots of food.  Went for a lunchtime walk (around the outdoor shopping plaza – my nature trail is ice covered) and then after work, I met Alyssa for a run through the lights in the park. It was freezing but still nice to catch up since we hadn’t run together in weeks.

  • Wednesday – Believe it or not, I went to the gym.  I met my former co-worker there and then we went out to dinner.


  • Thursday– The day started out snowy but then it warmed up and I had a nice evening run. Even ran one of my miles with two speedy ARE runners.

  • Friday – A scheduled rest day. A walk at lunch and then spent the evening home wrapping gifts.

  • Saturday – I had to wait until the sleet/freezing rain stopped to get in my run (but not enough time to get the whole run in.)

a little chilly when the wind picked up but at least the ice had melted on the Rail Trail

Then we went to a Christmas Party hosted by one of our boating friends.

Spent Christmas Eve with Amanda and her sons driving through the lights in the park and then exchanging gifts.

Of course, it was also the first night of Chanukah.

  • Sunday – continued the run that I began the day before heading to my MIL’s to have dinner with family.

a perfect day for a run – ran in the opposite direction on the Rail Trail and in town

 16 miles done with 4 runs and 3 rest days

  1. It was a very festive and eventful week for you! I stayed away from all the goodies until Christmas Eve, and now I haven’t stopped. (Sigh). Look at you at the gym! You are putting me to shame. I didn’t get to see nearly as many Christmas lights as I wanted. Time seems to run out. Or maybe it was just poor planning on my part! Thanks for linking, Darlene!
