Weekly Wrap for 2.26.18-3.4.18: Job #2


Again the second week in a row that I did not travel for work.  Because I took time off from Job #1 to work Job #2.  Hey, I gotta pay for those race-cations!

Last week – 

  • Monday – After a rainy cold Sunday, the sun came out. It was very windy and felt colder than the actual temps. But glad to get a run in at one of my favorite stops – The Crossings.

  • Tuesday – for Job #2 I worked at my old job’s locale. It was so nostalgic to get to run in nearby Washington Park. There was no wind today so more pleasant but I had to rush to beat the sunset.

  • Wednesday – Back at Job #1 and almost 60 degrees motivated me to run for the 3rd day in a row. Got a late start and had to run a speedy 2 miles in the dark back to my car.

used the flashlight on my iphone…wish I had my knuckle lights

  • Thursday – Back at Job #2. Finally a rest day and dinner out with a former colleague whom I had seen in awhile.
  • Friday – Rest Day #2 in a row due to the lousy weather.  Yes, we had a SNOWSTORM!!! Even my evening of mah jongg was cancelled 😦

pretty unless you have drive or run in it.

  • Saturday – Long Run Saturday. I had 12 on the schedule and was hoping for some company for at least part of the run. Always a challenge to figure out where to run and if the road/path is clear from ice and snow. Barbara offered to run with me but that before we had all that snow on Friday. So I ended running up with some other friends at the Crossings for 3.5 miles. The roads were all clear but not the paths so after my friends left, I ran 4 miles in a nearby neighborhood but when I returned to the park, the paths had been cleared so I finished up there. Probably my slowest long run ever. But happy that I didn’t give up.

Afterward I had a hair and nails appt.

  • Sunday – Rest Day Sunday – a weekly tradition especially with upcoming my 5 day work trip to NYC.

This Coming Week

  • Monday  train to NYC, 3 miles in NYC, tennis tournament at MSG
  • Tuesday – 4 miles in NYC
  • Wednesday 3 miles in NYC, NYRR book signing event
  • Thursday 3 miles in NYC with SSA
  • Friday – rest day, train home
  • Saturday8-10 tapering miles

    • I know. I ran a few days in a row because of that impending storm. We have another storm on the way. I am so over this winter!!


  1. Despite the work, it also sounds like you have some fun things planned for this week. Enjoy! They are saying snow for wed possibly, & I’m guessing the city won’t see that so maybe you’ll luck out.


  2. I didn’t realize you were working 2 jobs! You really are the energizer bunny.

    Hopefully, you are done with the snow for now. We’re getting snow tonight. This winter just won’t quit.

  3. You are always running at different places while you travel for your job. I bet that always makes the run go by faster. I will be traveling a lot more soon for my job. By that time Spring should be here and stay here for good. I am so sick of this cold weather. No more snow this year!

  4. Great job on your runs this week! Awesome job on getting in your long run on Saturday.

    I can’t believe that you got so much snow during the storm! Luckily we didn’t get any snow, but just lots of rain and wind.

  5. Do you enjoy your work trips to NYC? I grew up about an hour north of there and love visiting the city. I could never see myself living there though; it’s overwhelming at times. Even when I lived in Boston it felt so much cozier.

  6. I hope you enjoy your travel to NYC. I look forward to your pictures and seeing where you ran. I know you are so tired of winter and I’m praying you’ll get a boat load of FL sunshine very soon. Thanks for linking!


  7. Great job on all your running this week! I live in Maine and am done with the snow here too…but we are getting another big storm tomorrow!!
