Running Update – 1.9.17-1.15.17


Last Week:

  • Monday – Another frigid day. But I sucked it up and went for a run.

brrrr – it was 20 not 15 (like Sunday) but felt colder

I decided to get a sub for tennis since I was scheduled to play the next night (Don’t want to overwork this “old” body.)

  • Tuesday – A rest day for me.  A quick lunchtime walk and tennis after work (followed by dinner out.)
  • Wednesday –  Things started warming up so I gladly took a neighborhood run.

It was 52 degrees at lunch time?! Love this weather!

  • Thursday– Another scheduled rest day. 50 degrees with rain. Crazy weather.
  • Friday – I did go for a 4 mile run before my evening mah jongg game. Cold windy weather was back.  Not a fan!

the good news – more daylight, no ice, no snow

  • Saturday – A scheduled rest day to do errands, get things done around the house. The hubby and I did go out to dinner to celebrate our anniversary.
  • Sunday – Today I ran the Winter Series #3 10K race. No Garmin! No mile markers! Truly a naked race.  Not a fast one, obviously, but still had fun.

Judy also ran this race and I waited for her at the finish line

Of course, I had to run .8 miles to make it 7 miles for the day.

After the race, Judy hosted a brunch at her house. There were 8 of us – all runners for good food and great conversation.

 18 miles done with 4 runs and 3 rest days.

This Week:

  • Monday – Day off from work, 5 mile run with Judy
  • Tuesday – rest day tennis
  • Wednesday3 mile run with Alyssa
  • Thursday –  rest day, mall walk with bff
  • Friday4 mile run, mah jongg
  • Saturday rest day, March
  • Sunday –  8 mile run

  1. A 10k race with no timing sounds really nice to me. It’d be good to have the “crowd” experience of a race without the “competition” experience every now and then! Sounds like you and Judy had a great week …does Judy play tennis with you as well?

    P.S. Sounds like the weather in your area is about as fickle as ours! Ready for spring myself!


    • There is a clock at the end but nothing before.

      No Judy does not play tennis. But it was a tennis friend who started me running.

      I am ready for spring but it will be a very long time coming.

  2. Our local running club used to hold fun runs where we couldn’t wear a watch but had to guess our finish time. I was never close with my answer! I hate to tell you we’ve been knocking on 80 degrees for the last few days. I’m not sure we’ll get much of a winter. But, we need one. Good for killing bugs! LOL. Happy Anniversary! Thanks for linking, Darlene!
