Running Update- 6.5.17-6.11.17


Last Week:

  • Monday – Another rainy day. I decided to test out the treadmill at the gym. I planned on 4 miles but I barely made it 2. I hated every second.

  • Tuesday  Rain again! I had to travel to Liverpool, NY for work. After I set up, I had hoped to find a running route. But nope, had to settle for 2 sweaty miles on the mill.

  • Wednesday – Stuck indoors at work and the rain had finally stopped. Although I was exhausted, I decided I had to run because it was Global Running Day. And I did!

5 minutes away was the Onondaga Lake State Park – wish I had more time and energy to run

2 miles is better than nothing…

  • Thursday – Back home and I got to run with Alyssa after work. I hadn’t seen her since her marathon so there was a lot to catch up on.

    at the Crossings

  • Friday – Just work followed by a trip to gym on a needed rest day before my weekly mah jongg game.

not just mah jongg…

  • Saturday – I had planned to rest and go boating but changed my mind and went for a run and then stayed home to garden. All that rain has made those weeds grow….

slowest run ever…

  • Sunday – Today I ran the Run for Help 5k as part of mentoring the STEM running group. It was brutally hot and humid but it is always such a rewarding experience helping runners run their first 5k and seeing runners from past STEM groups continue to run.

I didn’t even stay around to get my age group award. I jetted up north to spend the day on the lake with the hubby.

We ended the day with dinner out with friends.

And that’s a Skirt Sports dress

21 miles done with 6 runs and 1 rest day (3 of those runs were only 2 miles)

This Week:

  • Monday – rest, hiking
  • Tuesday –  rest, tennis
  • Wednesday3 miles
  • Thursday – 4 miles with Alyssa, mall walk with BFF
  • Friday – rest, gym, mah jongg
  • Saturday – 5K race plus 6 miles
  • Sunday – rest, boating

  1. Awesome job this week on your workouts! I admire that you fit in your workouts no matter how busy you may be.

    Thanks so much for linking up for the weekly wrap. Have a great week!


  2. Those little 2 milers you squeezed in really add up by the end of the week! Way to go! I hate running on the treadmill as well …..3 miles is usually my max, I just get so dang bored.

    That SkirtSports dress is super cute! I may have to check into one of those for my Hawaii trip! 🙂
