Monday Running Update

spring 2015 monday
Last Week: 

  • Monday– Day off from work and I was recovering from my partying on the lake the day before but I did drag myself out for 4 scenic slow miles before spending the rest of the day on the lake.


  • Tuesday – Played tennis for 1 1/2 hours indoors and then watched the USOpen on TV with friends, pizza, wings & beer.
  • Wednesday – Knowing it was going to be very warm, I decided to run before work. I was tired from going to bed to late the night before but managed 3 miles in the neighborhood.


  • Thursday – Another warm day and forecast for storms got me and a hair appointment after work out of bed early for another before work run. This time 4 miles and I finished before the rain started.


  • Friday -No work today.  I met my college BFF in Williamstown, MA to see the Van Gogh & Whistler’s Mother exhibit at the Clark Art Institute.


It was great and we also enjoyed a nice lunch and hike.


may have been too much walking for a day before a long run… but so worth it

  • Saturday – I ran one of my favorite 5Ks

28:56 – not a PR or an AG group but still fun

and then added more miles to make a total of 11.5 for the day.


may have been my slowest long run ever – tired…humid…but enjoyed the scenery

After watching a great US Open women’;s final on TV, we went out to dinner and then I ordered a new phone (iPhone 6s!!!)

  • Sunday –  The boating season is winding down so I thought that we would drove up to spend one more day on the lake. But the weather didn’t cooperate so I spent a day catching up at home.

22.5 miles for the week with only 3 rest days and 4 days of running. Half Marathon is 4 weeks away!!! Gulp!

  1. Sounds like a solid week.

    Because of my IT band I was never able to get my mileage where I wanted it to be, but so far things are going well. If we could have temps like today — maybe a bit cooler & definitely less windy — for our races, that would be so awesome!


      • A lot of people from my group are doing Palio. I have 11 miles this week – and that’s the longest run I’ll be doing this training cycle.

        I’ll be with my group, but the person I normally run with is doing Palio, so I’ll really be on my own anyway.


  2. Nice job on your workouts this week Darlene. I also ran a 5k on Saturday, but had to go at 1/2 marathon pace since I was running a 16 mile training run today and ran and half marathon last Sunday! It is nice to have cooler weather. I also enjoyed watching the women’s tennis final!


  3. Our boating season is quickly coming to an end, well if you are going to get in the water it is. It cools so quickly! I may get one, maybe two more lake days. It looks like you are ready for your half! My race is 4 weeks away too. Yikes. I really appreciate you linking up with us!
