Exercise Day 171

Posted in daily exercise diary at 10:40 pm by Shanti

Today I walked 9.25 miles! My legs are killing me 😦 … and tomorrow I’m hiking up a mountain. :O

We even RAN from Times Square to Grand Central Station. I am so proud of myself!

I rode busses and trains and the subway loads today and it would have been ridiculous to try and show you all the the maps. ❤

Exercise Day 170

Posted in daily exercise diary at 9:32 pm by Shanti

Today I walked just over 11 miles – through Central Park, the entire Metropolitan Museum of Art, through the Theater District and around midtown.

The pictures are fragmented because I took the bus twice. They are in chronological order. 😀

OMFG my feet and legs (my shins especially) are killing me. No, seriously, I am in extreme pain. I’m going to swich out shoes tomorrow and see if I can’t handle it then. *dies* I have big plans for tomorrow…

Exercise Day 169

Yay!

I went 8.6 miles in the city today (OMFG), plus about another .4 miles to and from the train station here in New Canaan – grand total about 9 miles walking today! (For my stride that’s over 21,000 steps today!)

I saw 5th Ave (through midtown, anyway), St, Patrick’s Cathedral (and inside), Rockefeller Center and the GE Building, Times Square, Bryant Park, the New York Public Library (and inside), Grand Central Station (and inside), the Chrysler Building, the UN Headquarters (and inside), Trump Tower and Trump World Tower, The Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, several other awesome skyscrapers and hotels and churches, and all of the Museum of Modern Art (so much amazing art – omg!).

All in all, a good first day 😀
