Running Update – 1.16.17-1.22.17


Last Week:

  • Monday – Day off from work.  Woo Hoo.  Also my 18th wedding anniversary. (My hubby had to work but we went out to dinner over the weekend.)

Started the day with a plank. Kim from Running on the Fly challenged everyone last week to do a 5 minute plank.  Well, I did ONE minute.

 I took advantage and ran during the daylight.  Judy was nice enough to cooperate and join me at the Corning Bike Path.

Judy ran 3 and I added some extra

There may have been a lot of re-fueling involved.

Starbucks was closed but I found a replacement.

  • Tuesday – it was a miserable rainy day so I was glad it was a rest day. I did play tennis after work.
  • Wednesday – another rainy day but it did let up so that Alyssa and I could squeeze in 3 after work miles.

And no we didn’t plan wearing the same shirts

  • Thursday– Another scheduled rest day. In the evening, my BFF and I did our usual mall walk and talk.
  • Friday – I did go for a 4 mile run before my evening mah jongg game. It was cloudy but at least it was not cold.

  • Saturday – A scheduled rest day to do errands, get things done around the house.  Although I didn’t attend the Women’s marches in DC and NYC, I was there in spirit.  Instead, I attended the one in Albany, NY. I went with some friends. There was a great turn out and I’m so glad I went.

  • Sunday Today’s weather wasn’t as perfect as Saturday but it still wasn’t cold.  I motivated myself to complete my 8 solo miles (Judy ran on Saturday) with a post-run treat from Leah’s. Unfortunately it rained most of my run even poured at times. Plus the trail was so icy that I had to run on a back road to get my miles done.

 I did get my delicious post-run treat but I won’t be running here again until spring.  That evening I went to the movies with friends – a perfect end to the weekend.

  1. I did warn you about the fact that they get a LOT more snow up there, although I’m still surprised by the state of the path.

    I’m kind of glad about the 15k this weekend (I think). Cause I think it’s going to be messy most everywhere by then.

    I feel a whole lot better than I don’t have to go downtown every day. I wish I could’ve given it to you!


  2. Happy Anniversary (a little late). Great job on getting your runs done in your winter weather. We went to the movies and saw Split. Weird. But, OK. Honestly, I don’t even know if they had marches around here. I usually don’t watch or listen to any news. LOL. Thanks for linking, Darlene.
