Manhattan Mornings & Walking Routines

Sometimes I walk along Central Park in the morning before work, and this is what I see.

The view up the east side of Central Park

The view down a side street (72nd or something) from the park

I think I prefer walking to all other exercise. BodyRock was a good experiment, but I only stuck with it about 2 weeks. I just like walking better, and too much intensity is not fun for me. BodyRock is a great workout if you are into that kind of thing though.

What did you do this weekend?

On Friday night I had a dinner party and had people over, yesterday I got a facial and then spent the day with various friends, and today I will probably be spending the day with friends and running some errands. Friends are the best part of living in New York.

    i HATE bodyrock! that chick can take her funky accent and perfect abs straight out of my living room! :)
    if i’m not working out at the gym, i love long walks/hikes/pedalling around town. i’m definitely not sequestering myself in my house to watch that weird chick jump around! :)

      @teabag: LOLOL. She was cute for a while but it got old fast! (For me, anyway.) I can definitely see her appeal but it’s not for me anymore :)

    Can’t beat a walk through Central Park!

    This weekend so far I’ve been at the gym and dance practice.

    i’ve never walked in central park! only seen it from the perimeter! i had out of town guests staying with us this weekend so we did a city style culinary tour complete with coffee, eating out lots & tons of walking! i kickboxed yesterday morning while they were still eating breakfast and today just walked, i may try for some yoga later but i’m beat!

    Wow. Manhattan actually looks…quiet and peaceful from your shots!

    Hopefully we get to see pics of your new place soon! Btw, are you going to Foodbuzz Fest this year?

      @sophia: I don’t know – probably not! I’m in a wedding in November and don’t want to take too much time off.

    The city does look very quiet and lovely. I can’t wait to check out this sites when I come up in November.
