Monday Running Update


spring 2015 monday
Last Week: 

  • Monday– Boy, was it a hot one. I sweat for 3.5 miles in the city & the park. Met my BFF for a walk after.

  • Tuesday – Played tennis for 1 1/2 hours after work then met an old friend for a late dinner.
  • Wednesday – Knowing it was going to be very warm, I decided to run before work.  My legs even had some occasional speed but only had time for 3 miles (Yeah, I could have gotten up earlier.)

  • Thursday – Another warm day and forecast for storms got me out of bed early for another before work run. This time 4 miles. Now I know why I don’t run 2 days in a row. Even my new shoes couldn’t remedy my tired legs. (It was warmer and more humid.  Maybe that was it?)

  • Friday -Just work today and then a fun evening of mah jongg.
  • Saturday – I was planning a 5K but changed my mind and decided to do my long run uninterrupted.

  • Sunday –  I recuperated with a fun day on the lake. It was the annual Christmas celebration on Log Bay.

  2. Nice job with your runs Darlene, and especially that long run. Christmas on the lake looks like a great day of fun and laughter. You had a busy jam packed weekend of fun! We raced the Rock ‘n Roll Virginia Beach half marathon yesterday, but actually ran it as a hard training run. Both of us have fall marathons and thought it would be dumb to go all out for a race that was not our big goal race. We finished strong and negative split which was the goal!
