Weekly Wrap for 1.22.18-1.28.18: On the road again


Last week – 

  • Monday –  I was hoping the rain would hold off until I was done with my run. It did not.

I wanted to run 4 miles but it started raining too hard. Still being cold and wet felt better than hot & sweaty on the treadmill.

  • Tuesday – Another rainy day and a drive to Liverpool for work. It poured during the entire drive and then when I arrived, the sun came out. The temps had dropped and it was windy but I didn’t care. I ran along the lake on a clear path. It was a heavenly 4 miles.

  • Wednesday – A long work day and drive home. I was tired and it was getting dark but I headed to the lake and ran a quick 2 miles.  Quick because I froze. 8 degrees with windchill and it was soooo windy.

The problem was that I wore the same running clothes as the day before – 40 degrees, sunny vs 18 degrees, cloudy & very windy

  • Thursday – A scheduled dinner with my ladies buds left no time to run.  The frigid temps and wind returned so I didn’t feel too bad.

we went out for Japanese and as usual, it was loads of fun.

  • Friday – My re-scheduled hair appt. turned this day into a second rest day in a row.  Afterwards, I rushed off to my weekly mah jongg game.
  • Saturday – I feel lucky to have friends to run with on the weekend.  Today we took a chance that the Corning Bike Path would be clear enough to run on. And it was mostly and the sunshine and breakfast after made for a pleasant run.

I ran a mile to meet up with Barbara and then we ran 6 miles together.

  • Sunday –  My second race of the year was today – HMRRC Winter Series #4  (3M, 15K or 30K). Since I ran 7 miles the day before, I used the race as a recovery run and only ran the 3 miler. The weather was perfect and I even won my age group.

got to hang with Barbara and some other running friends

    • Yay! I did not run on the treadmill at all which means it was a good week.

      Yeah, I say I don’t care if I’m fast or not but I’ll never not be happy to win an award.


  1. I agree…I’d rather be cold & wet outside than hot & sweaty on a treadmill. That said, I think I’m gonna fire up ‘Milly later for a couple of Monday miles because it’s in the single digits (feels like) and I”m so done with the cold weather.

  2. We’ve been away from that single digit cold lately but now I’m hearing we’re getting snow again…boo winter! You had a great week – and that run along the lake sounds so nice! Congrats on another AG win!

  3. Congratulations on your AG win! That’s awesome!

    Oh, those temps sound brutal! The sun makes it much more manageable, but your winters sure can be brutal! We had a rainy run this week, too. I didn’t love it.


  4. sounds like a pretty nice week! and another AG in the bag! woot!

    I just started my training officially this week. Excited to have a goal to train for!

    it’s cold enough here for me to complain occasionally but nothing like what you guys have. next week we are in Poland…it’s MUCH colder there…
