Weekly Wrap Up for 4.23.18-4.29.18 – Another Week , Another Race


Last week –

  • Monday – No travel today so I was able to attend the Freihofer Training Challenge run (for the 2nd time although they are on week 6.) As usual, it’s a workout that you love to hate. We did do six 800m repeats at 5k pace.  My splits ranged from 4:24 to 4:15 and got progressively faster so I was pleased (even though I lagged behind my friends LOL).

Afterwards, I met my BFF for a walk in the mall.

  • Tuesday – Off to Liverpool for work.  I was able to get a run done before dinner and the predicted rain. Who knew it would be 75 degrees. Thank God for clouds and lake breezes.

I went back for a walk after dinner but no sunset due to the clouds.

  • Wednesday – Another rest day due to having to drive home after work. It was another rainy April day anyway.
  • Thursday – Back home and hoping for no rain and an outdoor run. No rain but clouds and WIND!!!

  • Friday – Another cool rainy day. Hopefully April showers will bring May flowers. I wanted to run but my backup plans were to pick up my race bibs, go to the Spring Run Off pasta dinner and then play mah jongg.
  • Saturday – Rest Day. I had signed up for a race (Spring Run Off 10k) but family comes first.  My stepson is getting married and my daughter-in-law to be asked me to help her bridemaids pick out dresses (Her mother had knee replacement surgery and could not come.)
  • Sunday – Race Day. Cherry Blossom 5K. Of course Saturday was a beautiful morning for a race. Today, it was COLD, windy and RAINY. A miserable day to run,  Many of my friends did run it so I am glad that I didn’t bail and I had course PR and won my age group.

I was cold and grumpy so I went home after the race.  The rain stopped and it wasn’t as cold and windy so I sucked it up and went back out to finish my “long” run for the day.

There was a lot of walking but it is done and I can relax.

  1. Well done on another PR and 1st place ! Runnng in crappy weather is … crappy, right? But you still kicked butt!

    I am an untraditional bride but I love to do wedding / bridesmaid shopping. I’m definitely a secret SYTTD watcher. Did you enjoy it?

    I have the feeling you are going to have a great time in Florida!

    • Not a traditional bride either. But it’ll be fun planning someone else’s.

      Running in the cold rain is not fun. But you can’t change the weather.


  2. Congrats on your win! And I love those dresses – sounds like a fun day with your daughter-in-law! I always wait til summer to go to Onondaga Lake Park – always figure it’s colder there!


  3. Congratulations on another fabulous race! Sometimes, it pays not to bail!

    I don’t know what the weather is doing here. The mornings are sometimes cold, sometimes hot and there’s no rhyme or reason. I think the allergy season is finally easing up, which is a relief. We are all done with that.All. Done.
