Weekly Roundup 10.5-10.11

Week 2 of 16

I don’t know about you guys but I had an awesome week!  I knew I was going away for the long holiday weekend so I crammed most of my runs in during the beginning of the week and saved a 5k for the trip.

My run on Wednesday was HORRIBLE!  One of those really, bad, sluggish days.  I tried to stay relaxed and not worry too much about it because I knew I had a 10 mile run the following day.

Thursday’s mid-week long run was perfect!  I had my daddo riding alongside me on his bike.  Weather was great.  Sun was shining.  Slight wind.  My goal was 8 minute pace (1:20:00) and I ended up running 1:20:12.  Darn 12 seconds!  :)


Friday was a travel day.  Eight hours in a car brought us to my uncle’s cabin in Ellicottville, New York, which is about an hour south of Buffalo, for Fall Fest weekend.  Saturday I ran a 5k (Race Report: Fall Fest 5k) and Sunday we took a ski lift to the top of a ski mountain at Holiday Valley Resort and walked down!  Oh my god, my glutes!  Ouch!

G mileage disclaimer: None of the mileage reported with Georgie is straight, consistent running. We may run 1 mile in 9 or 10 minutes but in reality we probably covered a 2-3 mile distance with a mix of walking and running.  I stop my watch every time we start walking.

  1. I definitely dream about going to this party place again. The live music at San Francisco event venues was an added bonus, providing a backdrop for the fun hours spent imbibing, tasting, and chatting up with the breweries and beer distributors.
