Weekly Wrap for 6.4.18-6.10.18 – Back you know where and another 5k


Returned to my favorite city. Too bad it was not for a vacation.

  • Monday – Back in NYC for work with a travel snafu for the next 3 mos.  I arrive at Grand Central Sta. now and then have to get to Penn Sta. where my hotel is and vice versa on the way home on Friday. PITA.  It was raining when I left home. But not in NYC.  It was perfect running weather.  After set up in Queens and checking into my hotel, I decided to run along the Hudson River and end up in Greenwich Village to have dinner. Then I walked all the way back to my hotel. No problem getting in steps when in NYC.  My legs covered over 11 miles for the day.

3.5 miles with walking and photo stops

  • Tuesday – Tempted to run everyday when in NYC but decided that I best take a day off since I had a 5k scheduled for the next night. So I got some inexpensive tix to a Broadway show.

  • Wednesday Global Running Day. As I did two weeks ago, I signed up for a cheap 5k in Brooklyn (Al Goldstein Summer Speed Series 5k #2). I wasn’t feeling great and so the run was tough. But I felt better when it was over. (Isn’t that always the case?)

not a course PR but faster than 2 weeks ago and won my age group

  • Thursday – Last day to run in the city this week so of course, I did. I took the subway to Central Park and ran my usual path and a new one (the bridal path) and then walked home.

my legs weren’t feeling it but the scenery was worth the 3 mile struggle

  • Friday –  Rest day because I had to rush to catch my train to get home.
  • Saturday – Finally reunited with my running friends for a Saturday run ( we now call ourselves “sole sisters” instead  of “wineglass ladies.”) and brunch after.

1 mile solo and 7 with Chris & Sherry. (4 others just joined for brunch) We even got to cross the finish line of another race on our route lol

  • Sunday – Boating Sunday. But first I got in a short run to the grocery store in town (with a detour along the lake.)

the hubby was impatient so only got in 1.5 mi.

A perfect day to hang out on the lake with the hubby and friends.

This Coming Week

  • Monday – train to NYC, rest day
  • Tuesday   Brooklyn Ice Cream Social 5k
  • Wednesday – rest day, train home
  • Thursday3 miles, dinner with a former co-worker
  • Friday – rest day, mah jongg
  • Saturday8 miles

  1. Sole Sisters, ❤
    It's funny, prior to the Q I'd have been ecstatic about the trains coming into GCT, but now it's so much easier to get to the Q and therefore home from Penn. You see more of my city than I do!


    • I LOVE Broadway but it’s expensive unless you are solo and get a tix at the last minute. I so want to see Hamilton some day.

      And it’s easier to place when you are OLD LOL


    • If you wait to right before the show, you can get cheap seats. It was also before the Tonys. Don’t know if it will work this week.


  2. You sure picked the right show to see – bet the tickets will be hard to get now that Once on This Island did so well at the Tony awards last night! I love watching the Tony Awards on TV because that’s as close as I’ll get to seeing a Broadway show, at least for the foreseeable future.

  3. Funny, I take Amtrak into Penn Station and our office (and my usual hotel) is near Grand Central … I’ve never figured out any of the paths in Central Park – I’m afraid of getting turned around. Congrats on your AG win!

  4. Congrats on the age placement! It would be so cool to do a race in NYC. Maybe one day…

    You beat me on our competition to get the boating season started (I was at the beach all week)! I hope to get there this weekend! Thanks for linking!

  5. you really got your miles in this week!! I’m always a tinge jealous to read about you running in NYC. I want to go back soooooo bad. Amazing you won your AG again even though you weren’t feeling that great! and I agree – afterwards we always feel better!!

    looks like a good week ahead too – it’s so great you get your runs in even if you are away from home.
