This week I didn’t work as much which means I got to run more! I retired my low-profile Brooks PureCadence because of a suspicion (untested, unproven) that they may be the cause of my knee issues, so I’ve just been swapping between my tried-and-true Mizuno Rider 12’s and 13’s. I’m holding out until the NYC Half-Marathon Expo next weekend, hoping I can find a good deal on some new kicks!
Oh, did I mention that I made the lottery for the NYC Half this year? I did – I’m in and running it next weekend! I’m planning to run pretty mellow because the aforementioned issues disrupted my training but I’m still excited – a bunch of my running club friends are manning a water station so I’ll have a whole cheering section even!
Sunday: 6 mile club run
Monday: 5 mile club run
Tuesday: 6 miles in Prospect Park – ran into my (now former) coworkers at Person of Interest who were shooting close by!
Wednesday: 5.5 mile club run – ran into my coworkers AGAIN, this time in Long Island City!
Thursday: Went back to work for a day with Person of Interest and gave my legs a day off.
Friday: Filled in for a friend at Gossip Girl-didn’t get out till 1 am so no running for me!
Saturday: A great 9 miler from Brooklyn into Manhattan to run a few errands
