Saturday, January 6

So, even though I didn’t post, I did exercise! We got snow on Thursday (maybe 3-5 inches), which although fluffy, was packed down from the wind. Shoveling was quite the workout.

Needless to say, I was sore yesterday and took a break!

Saturday, January 6

I went out around 11.10 a.m.  It was sunny and 10°F, with a humidity of 36 percent, a dew point of -12°F, and winds WNW gusting up 18 mph (wind chill of -8°F).

I walked for 2 minutes,
ran for 12 minutes,
walked for 1 minute,
ran for 12 minutes,
walked for 1 minute,
ran for 13 minutes,
then walked home for a total of 42 minutes.

Run time: 37 minutes

Walk time: 5 minutes

FYI – this is what I looked like upon my return:

I don’t know if you recognize the shell, but it’s a decades-old Ocean Pacific shell! My brother and SIL also gave me these Head Women’s Hybrid Gloves for running, and they are the best gloves I have ever worn. They even kept my hands warm today! You can also touch your phone with the gloves on, but I didn’t bring my phone today as it was too cold.

Today I walked with my BFF around 9.30 a.m. It was clear and 50°F, with a wind N 15 mph (definitely windy on the bridge!). We walked for an hour and a half for a total of 5.5 miles.

Some beautiful views today on the Walkway over the Hudson! I’m not sure what is going on, but they had put international flags up – very beautiful!

Wednesday, March 18

I went running later than normal today. I was awaiting a shipment via my aunt regarding some furniture, and I dashed out once that was received. It was about 3.45 p.m., mostly cloudy, 35 degrees F, with a wind chill of 21 degrees F. I dashed out in the same outfit as yesterday, which meant I really wasn’t dressed for the wind chill. Ah well!

I walked for 5 minutes;
ran for 21 minutes;
then walked home for a total of 30 minutes.

Run time: 21 minutes

Walk time: 9 minutes

The nice thing is that I caught myself striding down the slight incline toward the end of my run. Usually I’m slow and take smaller steps.

Tuesday, March 17

Yesterday I met up with some former colleagues/friends for lunch, and by the time I came home it was time for dinner! So, I didn’t run.

Today I almost didn’t go running because I feel really really tired, as in bone tired. I’m not sure why, but I did force myself to go out.

When I went out today at 3 p.m., it was partly sunny and 56 degrees F. However, it’s really mostly cloudy and 50 degrees F with a wind chill of 41 degrees F. I thought maybe I was wearing too many shirts (two long-sleeved shirts), but with the wind, it was just right.

I walked for 5 minutes;
ran for 21 minutes;
then walked home for a total of 31 minutes.

Run time: 21 minutes

Walk time: 10 minutes
