Running Update: 12.11.17-12.17.17


Last week – 

  • Monday – It was cold and there was snow/slush/ice on the ground in most places so I opted to run at UAlbany because it is always cleared…and it was.

2 two loops done and no slipping and sliding

  • Tuesday – A rest day because it was snowing and I was scheduled to play tennis anyway.
  • Wednesday – I took the train (which left an hour late) to Manhattan for work. After I went to and from Queens, I ran to the East River to run along the bike path in the evening.

2.5 mi to and from my hotel to the river…lights and bikers but not a lot of runners so I only ran a mile

Then I ran back to the hotel via Madison Square Park with a stop at rooftop bar for something warm to drink.

a view, heated igloos, fleece bathrobes – I had hot cider with fireball, whipped cream & cinnamon 🙂

  • Thursday – I worked all day in Queens but when I returned to Manhattan, I took the subway to Central Park. I ran the same route as last week and then ran through the city back to my hotel.

lots of lights, lots of runners make this the best place to run in Manhattan – don’t like getting lost so just run a 2 mile loop

  • Friday – Again I worked all day in Queens and then took the train home…no time to run today.
  • Saturday – Back to my morning run with the Wineglass ladies. This week we chose to run on the Nisky Bike Path. Alyssa, Barbara and I ran 6 miles. It was cold and icy but we slowly got it done. Afterwards the three of us went out to breakfast with Jeri.

this was the only dry patch on our route 😦

Later I celebrated my BFF’s birthday with a movie (Lady Bird) and dinner.

  • Sunday – Tonight was an annual tennis holiday party complete with food, drink, entertainment, games and gift exchanging.
