Last Thursday, Day #72, 6/27/13 was another great day. Thank God it finally cooled down outside...
Here's the exercise that I did Thursday (6/27/13):
5.7 miles of walking - Thursday's lunch walk was to the Old Stone House, the oldest building in DC and the only pre-Revolutionary War building standing in DC. It was completed in 1766. Here are some more pictures:
So this was a pretty cool lunch walk. Before I changed jobs in 2011, I actually used to work a block away from this house. But in those 5 and a half years, I had never been there. So it was cool to finally go inside. And it was pretty amazing being in a structure that was standing before there was a United States of America. The ranger was pretty cool as well (the house in run by the National Park Service), he was an older man working on his thesis at Georgetown University.
In addition to the lunch walk, I also went to LA Fitness that evening and did about 45 minutes of weight training with Don, my friend from church. We concentrated on chest, back, triceps and abs. One of the things that I really enjoy about doing the weight training with Don is that, I feel like I'm getting a much more challenging weight training workout than I was when I was trying to do it on my own. My muscles are starting to feel pretty solid. Now I just have to focus on losing the huge layers of fat covering them, lol.
Another great day in the books...
