Weekly Wrap for 6.25.18-7.1.18: Rain, Heat and a New Race


Back on the road for work and the new 15K that I have sorta been training for.
  • Monday – I ran after work today at UAlbany since I hadn’t run the perimeter and the pond loop in a while.

the weather was perfect

  • Tuesday – In Rochester for work and after the long drive and set up, I headed to the Erie Canal trail for a run. It was a little warm but nothing like the weather which will be coming this weekend.

I also met up with a fellow Skirt Sports ambassador which is always fun.

  • Wednesday – After work, although I had a long drive home, I planned to stop for my ice cream and a short run. Unfortunately it was pouring so I had to settle for just ice cream.

got a milkshake – so yummy

  • Thursday –  A rest day because after work, I had plans to get together with my tennis friends.  We try to do this once a month. It was another rainy day as well.
  • Friday – Another rest day (third rest day in a row) in preparation for my race the next day.
  • Saturday – Adirondack Race to the Lakes 15k. It was a new race on the hottest day of the summer so far. I didn’t know what to expect and the hills were the worst (or maybe it was the humidity).  But I just walked a lot and survived. The ice cream at the end as well as the cold lake to soak your feet helped. And I placed 2nd in my AG.

  • SundayBoating Sunday. 100 degree day and so happy to be able to spend it on the lake.

all I needed was some shade, cool water and a good book

  1. Looks like a gorgeous setting for a race, but i hear you on the weather. I love that book though, one of my favorite running reads. Great airborn shot in your Rochester run.

  2. I just finished that book! I thought you didn’t read books about running. 🙂

    The 3 hs (hot, humid & hilly) is always really, really tough. Especially since this came on pretty suddenly. I did not envy you sat, but an AG award is pretty amazing in those circumstances!


    • I don’t usually but I heard her on a podcast and was intrigued by the travel element it’s not a how to book.

      Tough race since I don’t train on hills. I was almost 15 min. behind the 1st place winner. Lol
