Anyway, afterwards, Jamie went home for a nap and Alex and I went and sat in the sun in Central Park near Columbus Circle for 45 minutes until he had to go to work, at which point I walked down 8th a little ways and found a deli at which I ate a mediocre $8 roast beef sandwich on not very good (or sourdough-y) sourdough. Then I had two hours until I had to meet Leigh to practice for her juries (which are Friday morning), so I.... started walking. Walked down 8th to 29th and then headed for Madison Square Park, where I rested and drank cold Shake Shack water for 20 minutes before walking down Broadway to 4th St., where NYU is. I figure three miles - plus other bits of walking to and from the subway - three and a half miles today! I feel like I'm exercising again, sort of!
Seriously, though, all the walking does make me feel a lot better at the end of the day, given that I have barely been exercising since I got here, except for the occasional tap session at Ripley Grier or run around the block, or the two times I used my workout dance video. I've been walking a lot this week, including all around with Alex and Tara, and all around on the subway stop project, and all the way around the cemetery (which I think has about a 3 mile perimeter, and all the way down Greenpoint. I hope to keep it up!
