Weekly Wrap for 2.5.18-2.11.18 – Decision Time


ru

Do I continue training for a March 17 Half Marathon (check out my Ultimate Coffee Date post for an update on my situation) in case I find a substitute one in Florida on the same date or do I just run whatever until spring (when I will start training for my May 19 Half Marathon)?

Last week – 

  • Monday –  Snow returned. Wind and cold temps, as well. We can’t catch a break this winter. Not knowing what the busy week would bring, I forced myself to run in town (and I froze!)

Afterward I met a former coworker at the gym. You heard that right. I went to the gym.

  • Tuesday – Off to Buffalo for work. I arrived early in hopes that I could find somewhere to run especially with a snowstorm on the way. It was cold and windy but I got it done.

I squeezed in 3 miles but the most interesting part of the run was when a lady stopped me whom I thought wanted money but she really just wanted to know how to start running. I told her about the couch to 5k app and she was so grateful.

  • Wednesday – A long day at work. Too dark, too cold, and too much snow to run on the streets. I could not bear to run on the hotel treadmill so nada for today.

  • Thursday – Another day similar to the day before. But I decided to take on the cold, wind and snowy-covered pavement.

3.5 miles and I didn’t fall. At least there was no ice. Accidentally found the Shark Girl statue that I had heard about.

  • Friday -I was planning on a rest day because of the long drive but another snowstorm kept me in Buffalo for an extra night. Out of boredom I took to the treadmill before dinner.

3 boring slow miles

  • Saturday – Almost 30 degrees!!! Of course not even the snowy sidewalks could not stop me from running before checking out of my hotel and driving 5 hours home.

so no long run today but throughly enjoyed my run even if the pace was 15 mm.

  • Sunday –  My original plan called for Hot Yoga. But since I didn’t get home Friday as expected, there was too much to do.  Instead, a rest day to catch up before I take off for 5 days of work in Queens. (It rained all day so I wasn’t even tempted to pound the pavement.) But at least I went out with the hubby for an early Valentine’s Day dinner.

This Coming Week

  • Monday  train to NYC for work, 4 miles??
  • Tuesday work in Queens, 3 miles?
  • Wednesday – work in Queens, 3 miles?
  • Thursday work in Queens, rest day, evening webinar
  • Friday – rest day, train home from NYC
  • Saturday10 mile run?
  • SundayHMRRC Winter Series #5 (4.5 m)

  1. I saw on Instagram that you got stuck in Buffalo – dang! I’m with you, this winter has been extreme, even for us. Really getting tired of frigid temps; at least if we get snow, it’s a rare (ok, twice this winter, which is really unusual) event that we get to welcome and play in. But still, I’d like a solid week of 40-ish degree weather…that’s a good compromise for winter, right? 😉

    Love that shark head girl statue, so cool!

  2. It’s got to be hard to run when you travel for work. But, you do a superb job in getting in the miles while seeing the sights. (The Shark Girl is weird.) We hit spring today. I know because my allergies are telling me the trees are pollinating. I’m not ready for heat and humidity! Thanks for linking.
