Blissful Saturday exercise!

It is absurd how happy it makes me that I was able to have a blissful Saturday morning of exercise at Chelsea Piers. First time since Sandy! November was a strange month, and being sick is no fun, so I am particularly grateful to be back in (as it were) the saddle. Also very excited about the logistics of locker possession. Locker plus amazing trail-running backpack opens up all sorts of excellent possibilities.

It was hard to get out of bed, as I was fairly late getting home last night after theater and dinner and the whole week has been rather too much along those lines, but I ran down to the gym (c. 5.5 miles?), did Joanna's 10am spin class, took a hasty shower and indulged in 11am restorative yoga. I'm not logging that class as exercise, it's more like meditation, but/and it is very lovely.

:52 run (c. 5.5mi.)
:55 spin (2 x 12min climb)
1hr restorative yoga

I, too, spent some irritating time sick recently, and it's been good to get back out there this week. This morning, despite a vicious north wind that chopped the waves wildly on the lake, running on the path was great--and, bizarrely, there was a chicken running around in the park.
