Running the Waterfront loop is a great exercise for me because it’s about 3 miles the whole way. When the weather is nice, it’s a beautiful and scenic run. My goal is to be able to run the loop three times a week before May of this year.
One of benefits about running the waterfront is that I spend less money shopping during lunchtime. 🙂 The danger of working downtown! Seriously, the best benefit is that I have my evenings free again. I used to work out 5 days a week, immediately following work. It was a pain to schedule fun things (like Happy Hour or movies with friends) when I had to work out first. This works out much better!
Today I did the run in about 38 minutes. That’s not my best time, but the bridge went up! That’s a hazard living in the city of bridges. I burned about 360 calories, came back to the office to shower, and ate my Trader Joe’s Indian food for lunch.
On a side note, a blog I really enjoy posted my weight loss story. You can read it here: http://runeatrepeat.com/
