Weekly Run Down for 10.14.19-10.20.19: Home Sweet Home

No work travel this week. Just the normal busy stuff.

Now that I have free time during the week to actually to do my training miles, it’s taper time for my NYCM training. It figures….

Last Week –

  • Monday  – Even though it was the day after my 20 miler, I signed up for a race, Lawson Lake Trail Run. I had the day off and it was only a 5k trail race. I planned to just walk it. After experiencing lots of discomfort the previous day, I was surprised to wake up feeling as if I had NOT run the day before. Still I walked most of it and It was a fun time. The weather was awesome, the course scenic and some of my friends came as well.

probably less than 3 since Jan and I made a wrong turn

After the race, my hubby and I decided to make one last quick trip to the lake. We even made our last trip to Martha’s for ice cream (sorry no pic)

  • Tuesday – With rain in the forecast for the next two days, my running friend and I headed to run the UAlbany loop after work. We ran in the opposite direction from last week and discussed alternate places to run. Afterward I met my BFF to chat and walk around the mall.

  • Wednesday – There was a scheduled SOAR run today after work on the rail trail. But it was raining so I bailed.
  • Thursday – Long work day and it rained all day and night but it was not raining when I left work so I ran on the Corning Bike path. I had the company again of a friend. Definitely made the difference.

Afterward I rushed off to have dinner with some tennis friends.

delicious dinner…miss these ladies since I don’t play tennis anymore

  • Friday – Rest day…Chiro appt and then time to relax and play mah jongg.
  • Saturday – Only a 12 mile run for this week. Start of my TAPER! We chose the local rail trail and the weather was PERFECT!! (cool and sunny). I ran the first 5 miles solo, then the last 7 with Barbara and Judy and joined the others (Sherry, Chris, Jeri) afterward for brunch.

so lucky to always have friends to do my LONG runs with (and brunch with)

No rest for the weary. As soon I was done with post run brunch, I drove with a college friend to meet another college friend for a mini reunion on the Walkway Bridge Over the Hudson.

friends since 1973….. ❤ ❤ ❤

  • Sunday – Rest Day and no boating… just nothing. Aaaah.

  1. We’ve had so much rain, too. I’m glad the long runs are done (as of today!) and I don’t have to stalk the weather as much…well, except for the DC weather this week LOL Glad you’re enjoying your taper time 😉

  2. On the drive up we were talking about doing the Walkway again. We did it this time one year for mom’s birthday as a halfway point. So pretty
    I’m so looking forward to having the rest of Saturday to relax, but yeah I need to clean my apartment.

    • It’s a perfect time of year for that. My work trip to White plains next week got cancelled. No Halloween lights. Looking forward to relaxing next week before the big day.
