Saturday, ran bridges

7:45 – Ran Manhattan Bridge and looped down to Brooklyn Bridge and it wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be; it’s that long hill up the second bridge that is painful, it’s shorter on the Brooklyn Bridge so it felt a little easier and that bridge is much more beautiful to look a so that helps. Continued to Tillary street and did 12 pushups on the wall while waiting for the walk signal so I could cross the street. Ran back through Cadman Plaza Park, then to Almondine bakery (bought a delicious apple turnover, I’m sure it had more calories than I burned…).  Walk home carrying the goodies from Almondine and a 10 pound bag of kitty litter on my hip as if it was a child.

Pedometer:8600 Steps (ran just over 4 miles)

Did mild stretching and somersaults with Mateo and now I have a pain in my left shoulder blade so I couldn’t do weights as planned. I guess I’m too old to do somersaults?!?!??!
