Weekly Run Down for 3.11.19-3.17.19 – Race Week!


Last week

  • Monday – Rest Day.  Geez there are a lot of these.  Went to an ART appointment after work. She seemed pretty encouraged about the lack of tightness in my calf (but then again I hadn’t done anything since the last appt.) After I was done, I did some errands and stopped off at the gym to use some arm machines.
  • Tuesday Met a few Sole Sisters for an after work run at UAlbany. Love the extra hour of daylight.

thumbs up for friends to run with even though it was a pretty sucky run/walk

  • Wednesday – Rest day as after work, I had to go to my brother-in-Law’s wake (who died unexpectedly last week).
  • Thursday – Today was the funeral and I got in a short run after at The Crossings (Running definitely is therapy.) And I followed it with my last ART appointment before my race in hopes of being able to run 13.1 on the bum leg. She performed some magic, taped it and wished me luck.

beautiful weather but lots of puddles on the paths (or more like lakes) A slow run but the leg actually felt pretty good 🙂

  • Friday – Rest day and evening home (mah jongg was cancelled) to re-group after a stressful week and pack.
  • Saturday – Another rest day and a bus ride to NYC. After checking into my hotel, I headed out to get my race bib. Met up with Cari at the expo and then spent the rest of the day relaxing and carb loading.

  • Sunday – Today I ran the NYC Half Marathon. Took an early morning shuttle to Brooklyn where the race began and I eventually finished in Central Park. It was painless for my calf but not for the rest of my undertrained body. My finish time was even better than my previous two halves despite the wind and the cold. NYC rocks. I loved the race. So glad I decided to do it.

  1. You have another very busy week! That’s strange to have a Friday evening wedding. Hope you enjoy it.

    I am mentoring for FTC again this year, but let them know i couldn’t come today. Need more rest. But will probably be there sat (and sunday back to my parents for my dad’s birthday).


  2. Congrats on the race and glad your calf was ok. I would love to throw my name in the hat for the lottery for that race some year!


  3. Wow huge congrats! Hope you give us some more details on the race. Sometimes the time off helps us get that surge of energy back. I hope that works for me at cherry blossom in a few weeks. Congrats!


  4. ah I’m so glad that the calf held up for the race! I guess it was kind of expected that maybe the rest of your body wouldn’t totally agree with the mileage but so so glad you were still able to run. AND meet up with Cari. AND run NYC Half. Color me jealous!

  5. So Sorry about your BIL.
    Hooray for the calf cooperating AND a great finish time! I so hear you on the undertraining thing. The NYC half seems to have the same wonderful energy as the full. Can’t wait to hear more about it!
