Weekly Run Down for 9.9.19-9.15.19: Home At Last


ru

After four weeks of working in NYC and two weekends away, it was nice to be home and sleep in my own bed.

NYCM Training continued of course.

Last Week

  • Monday  – I spend today in RI with my college roommate. I started out the day with a recovery run along the beach.

Then we went kayaking for about 2 hours. Yikes. I have never used those muscles before. So sore.

loved kayaking!!

We finished the day with a boat ride to a beach to relax.

This weekend away was just what the doctor ordered.

  • Tuesday – Back home and back at work. Took a rest day, went to the chiro and then a walk around the mall with my BFF.
  • Wednesday – Fleet Feet sponsored a run night so I agreed to go with a friend. I got there early so ran 1.5 miles and then sampled some Untapped fuel and ran 3 miles with my friend and a new running friend. Nice change of scenery. Heat and humidity returned but it was only for a day.

at the Crossings where I have not run in a while

  • Thursday – Rained all day. But when I got out of work, it was not raining. Headed to the Corning Bike trail where was nearby to squeeze in a run …

leaves are stating to change already…

Then off to an early release viewing of this movie:

loved the clothes, scenery, the characters…everything about this show and of course the movie!!!!!!!!!!

  • Friday – Rest day.  Finally got to play mah jongg with the girls.
  • SaturdayLong Run Day with my Sole Sisters. My plan called for 16 miles. I ran 8 solo though I did run with Jan for a bit. Then Barbara arrived to run the next 8 but for the last mile I told her to run ahead as I was pooped. I thought it might rain but actually the weather was perfect.

on the local rail trail

After we all headed to a birthday party. Good food and good times. Running friends are the best.

  • Sunday – Still nice weather for boating on Lake George. Lucky us. We relaxed and BBQed

and then I went for a long walk in the trails.

  1. Congrats on the 16-miler! It’s neat reaching those new distances, isn’t it (though it is exhausting LOL). I have not watched Downton Abbey (but the hubby has, ha!). A bunch of friends are eager to see the movie, and I told them someone would have to be my “interpreter” because I don’t know any of the characters or story line…

  2. So glad that you were back home this week – you’ve been traveling so much lately! Congrats on your 16-miler this weekend. It’s always fun when you reach a new “long” distance – that’s part of the fun training for your first marathon 🙂

  3. Right now it feels as though I’m never going to run another half, but I’m sure there’s some more in my future some day. Perhaps a 5k next Sunday, this week will be challenging with a couple of visits to my parents.

    Sounds like you had a nice week.

  4. I can’t wait for the Downton Abby movie. The only thing is that I watched the show on the treadmill while running so I’m torn between seeing it when it comes out or waiting until I can rent it and watch it on the treadmill.
