Running Update: 7.31.17-8.6.17


Last Week:

  • Monday – A sunny day so I had to run. The warm weather returned.

On the rail trail

  • Tuesday – Finally got to play tennis. It was great catching up after at dinner as well.

at UAlbany courts

  • Wednesday – Since I was working near the Crossings, I decided to squeeze in a run there. Another warm one but I’m not complaining.

  • Thursday – No rain this week so far.  Amazing.  I ran with Alyssa for our weekly after work run.

it was warm but we celebrated our fast run with ice cream after

  • Friday – Another scheduled rest day. After work, I planned to drive up to Chestertown to stay at my friend’s house on Schroon River (to make my race day drive shorter) but I was pooped so stayed home and played mah jongg instead.
  • Saturday – Today I ran the Race the Train 8.4 mile race. I expected rain but just got humidity. And it was much hilliest than I remember.

Course PR and 3rd in my age group

Afterward I stopped at my friend’s and we decided to go hiking.

So much fun. We didn’t get as far as the reservoir but saw pretty mushrooms and waterfalls and hiked 4.2 miles

  • Sunday – A weekend would not be complete without a trip to the lake.

Hung out with friends, grilled a great meal and finished a book 😊

  1. I’m glad to see you sitting down and resting a little bit while you finished your book. 😉 I wish we had some nice places to hike nearby. I’d enjoy that. Congrats on the course PR and age group placement. Where do you put all those awards?
