Yes, we’ve already some very chilly mornings. In the 30’s. We’ve already used our fireplace in the evenings. I’ve used the heated seats in my car.
I’m not a fan. I can never dress right and I HATE that my after work runs and hikes will be slowly disappearing.
Of course, by the end of the week, it felt like summer. OY!
Last Week –
- Monday – I missed #nevermissamonday because I ran on Sunday and am cautiously resting my back. I went for a pre-work walk and froze (remember I don’t know how to dress for 30 degrees anymore).
I went on a lunchtime walk and then I was too warm.
Instead of a run after work, since my bike was still on my car, I took it for another road trip. This time to the Corning Bike Trail.
My legs are not yet adjusted to biking… needed a nighttime soak
- Tuesday – I dressed to run before work but never got out. Instead I squeezed in a 5k during lunch.
After work, I took a walk before my STEM volunteering assignment. Tonight we walked for about 30 min. and the participants were better behaved than last week. I think I’ll continue doing this.
- Wednesday – Long day at work so I made sure to get in a few short walks in the hood. 50 degrees before work, 70 degrees at lunch Ouch!
Today I also had my second appointment with my chiropractor. She said my SI joint was not as tight. One appointment and I hope to be fixed. She gave me exercises to do for my tight hip flexors.
For our weekly Sole Sisters after work walk today, we returned to Vosburgh Trails. And the weather was perfect for an evening on the trails and to the waterfalls.
- Thursday – Day off from work and a busy one.
First I went on a hike with some friends. Due to evening plans, we had to choose a shorter hike – Hadley Fire Tower. It was my first fire tower climb and I was a little nervous. But it wasn’t that hard and I loved it!! Can’t wait to do another.
My friend finished the Fire Tower Challenge – She hiked 23 of them!!
When we got back, I had to rush to get to my monthly tennis friends gathering.
- Friday – Rest Day Friday. Started the day with a walk.
But not having run for 2 days had me out there for a short one during lunch. I was tired of my neighborhood so I drove to run. Of course, that meant I had less time to run. Oh well.
And of course, ended my day with my weekly walk with former co-workers. Instead of the rail trail where we usually walk, we toured the neighborhood where my friend recently moved.
- Saturday – LONG RUN DAY. Back on the rail trail. I had thought of running on Sunday but since the hubby decided to play tennis, I decided to meet friends to run. It was our last run because of our virtual half marathon in NH next weekend. I ran early and then met Deirdre, Jan and Debbie for our run/walk interval run while the others walked. It was painless which made me happy.
After the run, I couldn’t join everyone for brunch. I had to rush home. Since we were busy on Sunday, the hubby and I decided to go boating on Lake George today. And the weather couldn’t have been better.
- Sunday – Today we were scheduled to celebrate my MIL’s birthday. It was take-out at her house in the afternoon.
That made me happy since it meant that I had time to hike to another fire tower. I convinced a friend to accompany me hoping that she would enjoy it. I choose the Dickinson Hill Fire Tower since it was the closest and I didn’t have much time. Also it was reported to be less than a 3 mile out and back hike.
So glad I did this. And I think Molly enjoyed it too. I see more fire towers in my future.
