Rain, chill, after work @Y and before obligatory boat work & long-scheduled Liz & Diane dinner. Better at treadmill alt walk/jog today than in the past. Some to do with insight from the cardiology appt today, incl echo & HM results, as well as tapering metoprolol from 100mg to 25 mg over the past 3 wks. Beta blockers and physical exertion are at odds, clearly demonstrated @ WP. Hopefully, this will prove the "obvious" reason over the next few months.
I do have a tendency to overlook the fact that I have literally not jogged even 2 miles at once in the past 6-8 mos although at cardiac rehab sessions, I worked reasonably hard, tho HR-limited.
Walking 50:52  2.48 mi (20:31 / mi) +1m 20:29 / mi
South End walk @ end of day, mostly spent inside, sitting for nearly 9hr. with about 50' outside at lunch. Met Beth outside BPL at 5pm. We walked Newbury St., looked for a place to eat but it was already hopping with young city swingers (20s, 30s, 40s) so we went to an Au Bon Pan saving an anniversary dinner for maybe as soon as tomorrow, the 30th. I haven't seen so many young people out anywhere. Perfect wx for it recently (actually 3 90 deg days in a row, one a record). Usually come here when it's either chilly or just plain cold.
Sat next to a guy launching a drone
to a few hundred feet above Copley Sq., admitting it was illegal. Asked him if he could get it as high as the top of the John Hancock bldg - he thot so but wasn't willing to find out.
Best part of past 2 days is early morning walk to CME while delightfully cool & breezy.
Boston CME days. And a hot one, too, today (94F). Inside from about 0710 to 1710 except for 50' at lunch but that was partly spent at BPL. AC is nice but outside on the streets is pretty absorbing with sounds and sights. Staying in the South End at an Air B&B on Tremont St, so city noises to mostly ignore. Many interesting lanes, small tree-canopied streets, brick buildings/facades, green space parks and cubby holes. We wondered why the SW Corridor Park had no visible benches. We sat on a wall outside a dog park then subsequently noticed a bench in pleasant shade. Went to it, puzzled by three bolted crosspieces of wood, demarcating 4 sitting spaces. But then a bulb went on. It was otherwise a most pleasant place to sleep the night's ETOH off etc. High rent "benching it" made mostly impossible. South End is unfamiliar to both of us.
Did have an insightful & humorous talk on exercise rx. It is true one can create decent exercise sessions virtually anywhere and almost any time - a will, a way kind-of-thing. So it appears it's will power I'm in search of.
