First we went into Central Park to meet my friend James at his restaurant by the remote controlled boats and had a great lunch and catching up with him since I hadnt seen him in about 2 years.
On the way to meeting James, I saw a great looking tree and a branch to use to take a great pic of Gail, was fun getting her up on the branch!
After lunch we walked thru the park which included climbing a number of hills on the way.
We then went to the Museum of Natural History to see a bunch of dinosaurs, I hadnt seen them since I was a kid, and guess what, they didnt look like they aged much since the last time I saw them!
After the museum, we then went back into the park to walk some more and get back to the east side to pick up my shirt and bib for saturdays race.
So now we headed down to 67th and 3rd, and by that point we had been walking for about 6-7 hours and around 10 miles total if not more, what did we do???
We went to Flywheel Sports where my friend Jesse Alexander is an instructor. For those who dont know about Flywheel, its "like" spinning but 100x better! Its a 45 minute workout that totally kicks your ass and i kid you not, I felt MORE energized after that class then when we first walked in! Thanx for the great class Jesse!
I forgot to take a pic while we were at Flywheel so Im posting this pic of Jesse with another happy Flywheel client!
This was definitely a great day all around, and for me, I had so much to be proud of! The fact that I made it thru this day feeling the way I did, it just made me remember why Im doing what Im doing. This is a lifestyle that I missed out on for too long, not anymore!
