Weekly Wrap for 11.12.18-11.18.18 – It’s beginning to look a lot like….


New work travel location and a few cancelled running events due to an early winter.

  • Monday – Most of my running friends were off for the Veteran’s Day holiday and went for a morning run but I had to work so waited until after work. It was a slog but got it done.

  • Tuesday – Drive to LI for work. It was my first time going to this location (even though it’s where I grew up.) I had no idea where to run but it didn’t matter because it was raining. But then it stopped and it was still light so I headed to Eisenhower Park hoping to find a route to run on. And I did.

  • Wednesday – After work, I headed back to Eisenhower Park but just for a short walk. It was freezing and I had connected with two friends from high school with whom I would be having dinner. No time for a run but had a fun evening.

  • Thursday – Well almost another Rest Day. I planned to run on the treadmill before work but bailed. After work, I had to tackle the long slow drive home from LI. It was forecast to rain but it turned out to be a blizzard so I spent an extra night there. And guess what? I actually ran on the hotel treadmill. Hated every second but got it done.

  • Friday – Rest Day. Today I made the long drive home. No time to run as I had a hair appointment after work and a race the next day.
  • Saturday – Race Day. But the Girls on the Run 5k got cancelled due to the weather. I had run this race before but it was in a new location. I basically was going to do the race to support this charity and to meet up with the STEM coaches and runners. I was thinking about not running it even before it was cancelled (too tired!!!). So instead I ran a leisurely long run with my Sole Sisters followed by brunch. Love my running friends ❤

at the Crossings where they shoveled the paths 🙂

Then it was date night with the hubby. Movie (Bohemian Rhapsody) and dinner.

  • Sunday – Today I was supposed do a fun run with friends.  It was called the Raffle Run and you run for an hour completing a one mile trail loop as many times as you can. Each time around, you earn a raffle ticket which is entered into a drawing to win a prize. This was cancelled as well. So instead I did errands, cleaning, packing and picked up by race packet for Thursday’s race.

I decided to downgrade from the 10k to the 5k. And my coach agreed.

This Coming Week –  

  • Monday -train to NYC, 4 miles
  • Tuesday  3 miles (in NYC)
  • Wednesday – rest day, train home
  • ThursdayTurkey Trot 10K 5k, Thanksgiving dinner
  • Friday – rest day, drive to Pelham
  • Saturday Pelham Half Marathon
  • Sunday – rest day

  1. I was thinking about seeing that movie. Did you like it? I’m sorry your events were cancelled this week. The Raffle Run sounded like a really fun concept too. Hopefully your Turkey Trot will go on as planned. I didn’t know you were working with a coach. Are you enjoying it? Thanks for linking!

    • I loved the movie. Go see it.

      I don;’t have a coach. He’s the coach of the 10 week running group for this race. (and I only went twice). But I know him from past years and from the 5k that I do in June.


  2. Wasn’t BR such a good movie? That’s such a shame the GOTR race got cancelled. The Raffle Run sounds like it would’ve been fun too. The weather has been nuts. I don’t think I’ll be trotting on Thanksgiving since we have to be at my BIL’s house by noon.

  3. I’m glad that you were able to avoid the craziness on Thursday. The storm really made everything come to a complete halt everywhere.

    I am planning on running a turkey trot 5k on Thanksgiving and I’m really looking forward to it.

  4. Sounds like you got in some good runs even with traveling! I grew up on LI pretty close to Eisenhower Park. I wasn’t really much of a runner when I lived there but I did run at the park a few years ago when I was visiting.

  5. Wow, looks like you got a lot of snow! We just had a dusting that turned to rain so it was almost all gone by the evening. Sorry about the races that got cancelled. I really enjoyed Bohemian Rhapsody, hope you did too 🙂
