Arboretum run

I left my office today and went running! Usually Scott has to motivate me to go, but today I went all by myself. The whole loop took 43 minutes - 41 if you subtract the time waiting for the light to change.

A brief rundown of previous exercise:
Sunday, 10/28 - Walked from Kate's house in Spanish Harlem to the Upper West Side, for a great brunch, and then back through the park.

Saturday, 10/27 - Lots of walking around Chelsea, stopping in galleries. Then we walked to Union Square to watch the Red Sox. Stops for coffee, beer and pizza sprinkled in there.

Friday, 10/26 - A walk through the rainy Upper East Side to get pizza and a drink with Kate.

Thursday - nil

Wednesday - Lots of excitement over the CSI: NY project launch, but no exercise outside of walking to the party location.

Tuesday - An hour-long IM frisbee game. Fun, but not enough skill on the field to make it much of a work out.

Monday - nil

Sunday - Climbing! For the first time in months! I only did about 3 runs before my fingers failed me, but it was great. Excited about going back. A bunch of my IM teammates are climbers, so hopefully they'll let me partner with them.

Saturday, 10/20 - leisurely biking around San Fran with my parents and Scott. We crossed over Golden Gate Bridge and back, which was pretty neat.

So, after a few months of hardly any routine exericse, I feel like I'm finally ready to get back into it. (And work is finally letting up, which is 80% of the battle.)

Just wanted to let you know that I haven't died... I've just been working 70 hour weeks. Ugh. Maybe next month I can move around a little more. So far, it's just been a little Saturday morning pickup. My foam roller is my savior and helps release all my tight muscles enough to let me sleep!
