Weekly Wrap for 7.30.18-8.5.18: And the rain continues…


It was a rainy week. I am surprised that I got any running in.
  • Monday – What a humid evening. Though I ran the day before, since it wasn’t raining yet, I decided to go for a run on the local rail trail.

This deer was not afraid and ran along side of me for quite a while. She was unfazed by other runners and bikers on the path.

  • Tuesday – More heat and humidity and tennis on the schedule after work.  Still had time to squeeze in a few miles before the tennis ladies arrives on campus.

Even met my BFF for a walk in the mall afterwards.

  • Wednesday – Heat, humidity and thunderstorms…oh my! It rained ALL day but stopped right when I got out of work.  I had some errands to do so I decided to give the run a try. 95% humidity. I was wetter than if I got caught in the rain.

I tried to find shade at the Crossings but found bugs instead LOL

  • Thursday – A deserved rest day and more rain, of course.  I instead had dinner out to catch up with a co-worker (French teacher) who I had not seen in awhile.
  • Friday – Another rest day.  Just because I don’t like to run the day before a long run. It was raining AGAIN anyway! Thunderstorms no less. So I stopped off at the gym and then I played mah jongg (and went to bed too late.)
  • Saturday – Finally back to Saturday Long Run Day with my peeps. But at 6:30 am, the time of our scheduled run, it was pouring. Everyone decided to either run later or postpone until Sunday.  Having plans for Sunday, I decided to run locally after the rain stopped and Barbara was nice enough to join me. I ran 7 of my 9 miles with her. She did her 4:2 intervals which I could barely keep up with and afterward we rewarded our sweaty selves with ice cream.

After a tiring afternoon of errands and housework, I went out to dinner with the hubby and friends.

see I don’t always wear a baseball cao.

  • Sunday – The weather cooperated for Boating Sunday. Though it was hot and humid, it was nice on the lake.  I can take just so much floating so I walked into land and took a hike to the waterfall…much farther than I remember (and I had too small water shoes on – hence blisters) but it was still worth it.

This Coming Week

  • Monday –  drive to Liverpool- 4 miles
  • Tuesday   3 miles
  • Wednesday – 2 miles, drive home
  • Thursday – rest day
  • Friday – rest day, train to NYC
  • Saturday –  Governor’s Island 5k in NYC
  • Sunday -rest day, train home

    • It’s tough to squeeze them in when there are other things to do. That is why I just aim to finish my half marathons rather than train to PR.


  1. So that’s where all the rain is. We’re so hot and dry here everything is scorched. Actually we got a brief but very welcome downpour this morning but the humidity just won’t quit. Hooray for time on the water!

  2. It stormed here all last week and quit just before the weekend. Whew! It looks like you had a pretty day at the lake. Do you always anchor and “float”? Although I would enjoy that, it would drive my husband insane. He has to ride…and way too fast for me! Thanks for linking!

    • We do both. Sometimes we dock at an island. Other times we tie up to other boats. I love being on the water. It must be a guy thing. My hubby drives the boat way too fast.

      Glad you had nice weather fur Wendy’s visit.


    • We dock on one of the islands or we tie up to another boat in the bay. Love being on the water.

      Glad the weather was good for Wendy’s visit.


  3. Ugh, the heat, humidity and rain… I’m so over it all! As always though, you capture your running routes beautifully. The deer around here are fairly tame as well. Aren’t they so pretty?

    Enjoy that boating girl, it’ll be fall before you know it!
