Running Update: 6.26.17-7.2.17


Last Week:

  • Monday – it was a perfect running day but there was work and a dinner engagement after work. Hence no running.

Reunion. The coordinator of my junior year abroad program in France and a fellow participant. Haven’t seen them in 43 years!!

  • Tuesday Rain predicted but hoping to get a late run in.  It rained on and off all day and hard. But I got lucky. The sun came out around 6 pm when I was ready to run

  • Wednesday – So happy that the weather was perfect for a run. However my running buddy Alyssa was sick. Got it done solo but it wasn’t as much fun.

  • Thursday – A scheduled rest day and dinner out with some of my tennis friends.

  • Friday – Another iffy weather day with heavy rain and wind in the forecast but I hoping to squeeze in a run before mah jongg. Nope it was pouring so I headed to the gym instead. Of course the rain did stop so I could have run.
  • Saturday – I decided to skip boating in favor of gardening, errands and an easy run. I finally got to run with Judy and a hot, humid one to beat. Haven’t seen her in ages so it was great catching up.

I ran 6 with Judy and that extra mile for the donut

  • Sunday – The rain finally stopped.  Can’t have a summer weekend without a trip to the lake. Wish I didn’t have to work on Monday.

perfect weather for day on the lake – even better with friends and ice cream.

14.5 miles done with 3 runs and 4 rest days

This Week:

  • Monday –  4 miles with Alyssa 
  • Tuesday – rest, boating, fireworks
  • Wednesday5K evening race in NYC

  1. Geez you had a rainy week! That always makes juggling runs tough for me. Nice job – and I hope you enjoyed that donut! I only ran once last week…weird!


  2. We’ve actually had a fairly dry week …guess it made it’s way up to your neck of the woods! 🙂

    Good to see you and Judy running again together’s been a while since we ‘fellow bloggers’ have seen the dynamic duo!

    Have a great week Darlene and Happy 4th of July!


    • I guess so. Lately it’s been dry but wet weather is back for the end of the week.

      I know. Judy and I have very different running schedules so we rarely run together …it’s been since March.
