Pep In My Step

Waking up a half hour earlier than usual + a comparatively good night of (drug free) sleep + bright and sunny morning, tending to hot = decision to walk to work.

I did the approximately one hour walk from my front door to work this morning and despite getting here with a bad dose of 'pink face', and some impressive sweat stains, it was very enjoyable. I sometimes walk home from work, but this morning I decided to reverse that and start the day with some exercise instead. I took a few snaps on the way, and tried a few new side streets to get away from trudging along main roads for a while. Nice.

Today is going to be quite warm so I slapped on some sunscreen before heading out. Note to self, like any Max Factor saleslady would encourage, go for full coverage. I now have a very fetching pink spot on my forehead where I missed with the suncreen. I burn like unwatched toast. Seriously, I just have to look out the window and I burn.

But I digress. Walking to work. Maybe I'll make this morning walking thing a regular routine like the other cool kids do. Is anyone else in the habit of morning walking?

It is a great feeling to get exercise and air in the morning. I've been doing some yoga first thing, but not outdoors. It was 39 (F) here this a.m. The Cubans ducked and ran for cover.

You're all about the flexibility then? Look after the Cubans, they must be cosseted, cajoled and placated. At least, that's what I'd do.

Sounds like they'll be in good hands.
Any callouses? Mmmm.

The Snook and I try to do it but often fail to get up early enough. Which is sad, because it's only a 20 minute walk to the City. We're too lazy...
