Weekly Wrap for 8.13.18-8.19.18: Here we go again…


Yes. Rain, heat, humidity and more rain.

Though I was in NYC last weekend, I had to go back on Monday for work.

At least running in the city never gets old.

  • Monday – After a long rainy train ride to NYC and to and from Queens, I set out for a hot humid run along the Hudson River heading south. It rained on and off but never hard.

  • Tuesday – A long day of work is never complete without a run. This time I headed north along the Hudson. Again it was raining lightly when I started running but it didn’t rain hard until the last few blocks of my long walk home.

  • WednesdayAnother tiring work day but tonight I had plans to meet blogger Cari in Central Park to run. It was very hot and we may have walked and talked more than we ran. Lol

  • Thursday Hot again but the second day in a row without rain. I was tired and thought about hitting up a Broadway show but I like to save that for a rainy day. So I dragged myself on the bus and headed out for a slog along the East River all the way to the Manhattan Bridge. Then took the subway back from Chinatown.

  • Friday – Finally a rest day cause I had to take the train home that night. And guess what? It was raining when I got home.
  • SaturdayRain was forecast for my long run day with the Sole Sisters. And yes, it was raining when we woke up so we postponed our miles until Sunday. Of course the rain stopped for a few hours so we could have run. But I used the day to relax and catch up after being away in a NYC for 7 days straight.
  • SundayBoating Sunday. Well it got delayed until I got my 10 Mile run in. It was fun seeing my running buds again but I had to rush home after to join the hubby on the lake so I didn’t get to brunch with them.

I arrived first and ran one mile. Then I had the choice of running with Judy who was running 8 miles but I knew she would be running faster than I wanted to so I ran with Sherry who was running 10 miles. It was hard since it was my first double digit run in over 3 months and I skipped my long run last weekend.

a very peaceful day on the lake with pizza and ice cream for dinner.Why not? I ran 11 miles!

    • That running included a lot of walking. It was soggy out every time except Sun. Yes Cari and I connected immediately virtually and it was fun to actually meet her.

  1. You had a really busy week! I was in NYC over the weekend but sadly no running for me….it looks so beautiful out there, but we need to get rid of the humidity!

  2. How cool you were able to meet Cari! I’ve cut my running back so much this summer and you’re just out there getting it done despite the weather! Rock Star. It rained so heavily this weekend there was no lake time for me. It’s scary to think how little time there is left for that… Thanks for linking!

    • I know. The summer has sped by. My running has been a real slog. If I had been home and I had something else to do I would have skipped most of those runs.
