Running Update: 11.20.17-11.26.17


Last week – 

  • Monday –Not liking this COLD WINDY weather.  It was a struggle to get motivated to bundle up and run.

it wasn’t so bad and I ran at UAlbany which has lights and lots of fellow runners

  • Tuesday – It was a lot warmer (20 degrees warmer) but I was scheduled to play tennis. What did I do?  I ran a bit near where I play tennis and then rushed to tennis.

how could I NOT run to this?

  • Wednesday – Too much to do to run and besides I had two races to run the next day.
  • Thursday – Today I ran the Troy Turkey Trot 10k and then when I was done I ran the Troy Turkey Trot 5k (cuz that’s how I roll.) Neither was a PR but faster than last year so I am happy. You can read my recap here.

It was in the 20s at the start of the 10k but many dressed in costume and didn’t care.

  • Friday – Yes, I had to work on this Black Friday. I hosted mah jongg at my house in the evening which meant that I cleaned and bought snacks.
  • Saturday – It was long run Saturday with the Wineglass ladies. But since I ran 9.3 miles on Thursday, I opted to run short. The best part was gathering for breakfast afterward.  Glad my new running buddies like to eat.

I ran 4 with Chris & Alyssa. The others did a variety of distances.

Probably should have run more since in addition to breakfast out, I went out to dinner with friends.

  • Sunday – A leisurely (which is a rare one for me) day. Decluttered some closets and binge watched This is Us.

Next Week

  • Monday 4 mile run
  • Tuesday rest, tennis
  • Wednesday – train to NYC, 3 mile run?
  • Thursday – work in NYC, 3 mile run?
  • Friday – rest, work in NYC, train home
  • Saturday – 6 mile run or volunteer 5k with STEM
  • Sunday – or HMRRC Winter Series #1 (3M or 15k), Paint & Sip with mentee, Amanda (B-day present) link up for the Weekly Wrap hosted by these wonderful bloggers Holly @ HoHoRuns and Tricia @ MissSippiPiddlin.

  1. We ended up not going out to dinner Sat after all — I was just tired & didn’t really feel like changing. Leftovers it was. 🙂

    Probably won’t make up my mind on Sat til Thursday when I see my friend. And maybe I’d do the winter series anyway since Sat would just be a 5k . . . or not.


  2. Look at you doubling up on the Turkey Trots! I would have eaten double the Thanksgiving Dinner too! A delicious breakfast with friends after a long run is the perfect way to spend a weekend morning. Thanks for linking! I’ll miss you this weekend!
