Weekly Wrap for 5.21.16-5.27.18 – Recovering in the Big Apple


Last week I slept in my own bed all week. Not so this week.

  • Monday – After a train ride to the city and set up in Queens, I took the subway to Central Park to see if I was recovered enough to run. Mentally yes but my foot still protested so I ran a little, walked a lot and enjoyed a beautiful evening in the park. Then walked back to the hotel.

  • Tuesday – it was a rainy day so I was not tempted to run. Instead I spent the evening with a former coworker.
  • Wednesday – Racing? Who me? I ran one of these summer 5ks in Brooklyn last July so I signed up again. I was a little nervous about the foot but it turned out fine.  It was warm and humid and I was slow but still won my first award in my new age group. Win Win.

  • Thursday – Tired from work all day and another warm humid day but with the upcoming weekend forecast, I figured I should drag myself out.  So I took the bus to the East River (after a1/2 hour wait for the bus) and then ran/walked a few miles. Afterward, I had a lovely (one hour) walk back to the hotel.

  • Friday – Rest Day!! Worked all day then headed home on the train.
  • Saturday – I wanted to run with the FRW group (and go out to brunch with the wineglass ladies) but we still haven’t gone boating yet.  And though the weather did not look promising for the afternoon, the hubby and I headed up anyway. And we had a nice day. Not perfect weather but no rain. After a dinner in town with friends, we drove home.

  • Sunday – Since it was raining at home, we decided to drive back to the lake. It was cool and cloudy but we had fun BBQing at the marina. Yup three days in a row without running. Sometimes life gets in the way and you have to take a break.

This Coming Week

  • Monday –  Memorial Day, DAY OFF, 5 miles
  • Tuesday  rest day, movie and dinner with Bff

  • Thursday – drive home, 3 miles

  1. Congrats on your win in your new age group! It’s also a relief to hear your foot is better. We opted not to boat with Alberto heading our way. It’s probably a good thing because skiing for the first time this season just a few days before a marathon is probably not the smartest thing in the world. LOL. Thanks for linking!

  2. Congrats on the new AG win! Iowa weather has been SOOO weird this year. After an unusually long (and cold) winter, we are now in full-on summer mode (in regards to the weather)…and it’s still officially spring on the calendar.

  3. Some lovely photographs Darlene! My hubs has a big birthday this year and I want to take him somewhere special. NY is on my shortlist, seeing your photos I’m thinking and maybe I could squeeze in a run in Central Park…..
