So lately I have been feeling uninspired regarding my workouts. Not that I don't still workout, and I work out really hard typically, but lately I've missed the gym twice (Saturday and Monday). Thursday I didnt go, but I went running from the Kennedy Center to Memorial Bridge and then walked along the National Mall: reflecting pool to the Monument, and back to work. (for anyone who knows DC, I work in Farragut West, so it was a good little distance--It took an hour.) Anyway, I know I can walk long distances, but yesterday was probably the longest I've walked in ages!
I left my office and walked to Georgetown, to go to the new H&M that just opened, figuring if I'm not going to the gym, I can't take the bus. Its just not allowed.
Anyway, that's about a mile (from 20th & K to Wisconsin & M). Then! I walked from Georgetown to Van Ness, and the way I walked was about 6 miles (a lot of which is uphill)!! I walked all over the place! As I was walking I was thinking of all the neighborhoods I had gone through and how crazy it was that a) the city is so small, b) its such a beautiful city and yet I work out in WSC instead of outdoors, c)I couldnt believe I walked so far.
I'm a pretty fast walker, but this took me 1 hour and 35 minutes. I'm quite proud, if you didn't notice. :-) I dont think I ever thought I'd be someone who went out to do athletic things on a whim! what a joke!
Oh and I was carrying my gym bag all the way
