Running Update: 3.20.17-3.26.17

Last Week:

  • Monday –  Tonight was my first Freihofer Challenge Group run.  It was fun to see everyone from last year’s advanced group. We hugged and chatted and then just ran 30 minutes easy.

  • Tuesday – I don’t usually run three days in a row, but an arctic chill was forecast so I ran a quick one near work before tennis  🎾

  • Wednesday – Spring but felt like winter…9 windchill!!!


Yeah, I took a rest day and went out to dinner with a former co-worker.

  • Thursday – I met Alyssa for a run at the Crossings. As usual it was good one.

  • Friday –  I had planned on a short run but it was damp and rainy so I went to the gym and activated my free 6 month membership.
  • Saturday – I went to the gym for an evaluation, had an orientation and actually used the machines. I have no elaborate plans for working out but I am going to try to use the machine 2x a week.  We’ll see.

 In the afternoon, I went to the movies with friends (instead of the Hot Yoga fundraiser for STEM.)

it’s a thriller but I liked it.

Afterward, we got pizza (another fundraiser for STEM.)

carb loading for my friends running a half marathon LOL

  • Sunday – I ran the Shamrock Shuffle race today. The rain held off until after the race:) and it was a fun 5 miler.  I even won 3rd in my age group.

a medal & Irish soda bread was the prize 🙂

After the race, though I didn’t feel like it, I ran 4 more miles so I could get in 9 for the day. And in the  rain.

I celebrated my successful running day with some wine out with a friend. (No need for a reason for wine actually.)

5 more weeks to go!!

21 miles done with 4 runs and 3 rest days

This Week:

  • Monday – FRW Training Group Run (4 miles)
  • Tuesday – rest day, tennis
  • Wednesday  – 3 miles, dinner with the tennis ladies
  • Thursday – 6 miles (with Alyssa?)
  • Friday – rest day, mah jongg chez moi
  • Saturday – rest day, gym?

  1. Sounds like a very solid week in not nice conditions.

    If you get to the gym 2xweek I’ll be shocked, so go ahead & show me up! Hey, at least you got there once.

    At this rate I may do no local races this year. 😦

  2. Great job this week! Brrrr that 9 degree wind chill would have made me so miserable! Congrats on your age group win!

  3. You had a weather-challenged week! Congrats on the age group win. It’s fun when you win food! {Just sayin’.} I’m very impressed with your additional 4 miles in the rain. Thanks for linking, Darlene!
