Running Update: 10.9.17-10.15.17


Last Week: 

  • Monday – Columbus Day meant a day off from work.  The weather looked like a washout but I patiently waited and the rain stopped so I was able to get in a (humid) run.

  • Tuesday – Back to work and I was able to play tennis after work so I didn’t think I should run. But I had some extra time and there was rain in the forecast for the next day so I did.

At Colonie Town Park -ran in the opposite direction to last Saturday here

  • Wednesday – Today was my volunteer day with STEM. There were only a few runners and it was raining. Still glad I was able to meet and encourage them.

week 2, day 2 of Couch to 5k

  • Thursday – A long day at work but I was able to meet up with Alyssa for run which is always a good thing. She claims that I got her faster.  Now I hope it’s the other way around.

  • Friday – A needed rest day and an evening with my mah jong friends.
  • Saturday – Today I ran another one of my favorite fall races, the Great Pumpkin 10k. I saw lots of familiar faces, some running the 5k and some the 10k. I love the course and festive atmosphere. If only, I could figure out how to run a 10k and not a fast 5k followed by a slow 5k. (You can read my review here.)

58:02 (6th in my AG)

After the race, I needed to add more miles since I had another half in 4 weeks. I decided to stay in the park and run some leisurely miles while avoiding the HS cross-country racers.

Ended the day with dinner out with the hubby and friends.

  • Sunday – Woke up with a nasty cold which might have explained my lack of energy during the 10k the day before. But it was our last boating day of the season and my stepson’s birthday.  So we went out on the boat one last time. Relaxing in the sun actually was what the doctor ordered as was the birthday cake at my stepson’s party that we went to after.

24 miles done.

  1. Girl, you are the ‘Queen’ of races!! You guys seriously must have races every single weekend!! Beautiful running pictures as usual and what gorgeous weather you were blessed with for your last weekend of boating! I’m heading over to read your Great Pumpkin recap now 🙂


  2. I’m glad you got one more boating day on the lake. I don’t pace 10ks well and that’s why I don’t run very many. I’m always humbled by them. You still had a great finish time! I hope your cold is better. Thanks for linking!
