Weekly Wrap for 11.26.18-12.2.18: Taking a Break


Not from working in NYC but from training for a big race. The next one is not until February 10 so I can have a few weeks of short weekend runs.

  • Monday – Only two days after my hilly half. My legs felt ok so I planned to take them on an easy run through the lights in the park. But it was raining hard. Obviously someone was telling me to rest one more day. Instead I met a friend for a drink.
  • Tuesday –Today it snowed. Not a lot but just enough to wreck havoc on the drive to work. Luckily it stopped by the time I got out of work. I never turn down a chance to run with my “Sole Sisters” so I met two of them to a run around the UAlbany campus.  Of course as soon as we started to run, it started to rain. (At least just a steady drizzle.) Afterward I met my BFF for a walk around the mall.

actually only 3.5 miles

  • Wednesday – Off to NYC (again) by train.  I got there earlier than usual and of course I had to go for a run.  I took the crosstown bus and took a chance that the East River route would be lit up. (It was the night that they lit the tree at Rockefeller Center so I wanted to steer clear of that area.) It was and there were other runners too. Afterward I ran/walked back to my hotel and watched the tree lighting on the TV at the bar.

  • Thursday – Back after work to my trusted Central Park running route. I surprisingly ran into Cari and we ran for a while and then walked and chatted.

I continued my walk back to my hotel so I could see the lighted tree at Rockefeller Center.

  • Friday – Rest day and an uneventful train ride home.
  • Saturday – I was up in the air on whether or not to run a local 5k or an easy run with friends. I decided on the run followed by brunch and errands.

  • Sunday – A rainy rest day and anniversary dinner out with my Mah Jongg friends. We’ve been together for 10 years!!

  1. We watched the tree lighting on TV, but it wasn’t quite the same. We won’t be making it to the city this year to see it, which is such a bummer 😦

    Great week for you! It’s awesome that you get in all your runs with the amount of travel you do.

  2. You are a racing machine! But, you also need a break occasionally. Enjoy it! How cool you bumped into Cari in Central Park. It’s also cool you’ve been playing Maj Jongg with the same group for 10 years. Thanks for linking!
