Running Update: 8.21.17-8.27.17


Last Week:

  • Monday – Yes, I was tired after my busy weekend but I still ran and then went for a walk in the mall with my bff.

my legs were not happy with this one…slowest ever!!

  • Tuesday.  Had the day off from work to go to my friend’s funeral.  Took advantage of my free time to run with Judy in the morning.  She wanted to run 6 miles and I didn’t think I could handle that many after the previous day’s sucky run.  So we planned to meet after her 2 mile warm-up and run 4 together.  Unfortunately we mixed up the meeting location and only ran 1 1/2 miles together.  But it was the best I’ve felt in a long time. You know, one of the rare runs that you feel you could run forever.  I think it was that it was the morning and I was trying to run slower than normal.  Who knows???

After the funeral and dinner at the family’s house, I played tennis. I was pretty rusty since I hadn’t played in a weeks but it was fun to see my “happy” friends and of course, we went out to dinner after.

Everyone got a rock to place somewhere in Carol’s memory. I think I will leave it at UAlbany while I’m running there. It’s where we met and studied.

  • Wednesday – After work, I dragged myself for a run at The Crossings (because I worked today nearby.)

yes, it ended at the ice cream stand.

  • Thursday – After a long work day, I took a rest day (on a cool perfect running weather day) and instead went out to dinner with my tennis friends. One of the ladies arranged for a Hula lesson beforehand.  So much fun.

  • Friday – Another rest day. Just because…… I did play mah jongg in the evening
  • Saturday – I did my long run today. I thought I’d have company but ended up solo with my podcasts as a companion. The weather was perfect as was my post race snack.

After errands, I watched my hubby play tennis. Unfortunately, our dinner get-together with some running friends got cancelled so I actually stayed home!!

  • Sunday – I watched my hubby play tennis again and then we went up to the lake to relax.

We ended the day with dinner at a restaurant on the lake (with a stop for ice cream on the way home 🙂 )
