Wow. This is what Bike To Work Week must feel like.
For the last week, I’ve been taking advantage of the nice weather to get some more exercise done. On Tuesday I decided to get off the SkyTrain at Science World station and use my own two feet to get the rest of the way home. I’d done that just once before, taking a direct route through Yaletown. This time I stayed on the Seawall, taking in the nice view of False Creek, the bridges, the parks, and all the pretty yuppies out for their daily constitutional.
For extra fun, I also decided to jog as much as I could. I’d been getting in some cardio on the Burrard Bridge stairs a couple of times a week for the last few weeks, but this was a bit more of a challenge.
Then I did it again on Wednesday. And Thursday. And Friday. Hell, I may do it every day as long as the weather holds. As exhausting and sweaty as this was, I had a hell of a time. And hey, it’s never too late to get that bikini body, right?
This actually works out better for me because whenever I get home, I tend to laze around for a bit and have to psych myself to work out sometimes. This way, it’s easier. I’ve got no choice but to go home.
