Walking Through Cambridge

I actually felt OK today. I slept for about an hour on the way from Denver to DC after having a glass of wine.  I had to hustle to get to my connecting gate, and was glad I had premier status and could jump ahead in the line to get on early. It wasn't a full flight, but the overhead space can get tight across the water.

On the long walk over I'd been refreshing my boarding pass, hoping for an upgrade, but apparently they're not giving those out. I was in economy plus, and had an empty seat next to me, which was fine. It was a fairly smooth slight, I watched part of a movie, read a little, and slept for 2-3 hours before arriving at 10am in London. A short nap on the way up to Cambridge, and I was actually feeling OK, able to meet with some people and get some work done during the day.

I got back to the hotel around 6, and did a little more work, since my daily stuff hasn't gone away. I wanted to go back to this Italian place tonight, but also needed to work out. I decided to avoid the treadmill, and not delay things more by taking a roundabout walk to the restaurant. Things are fairly close to the hotel, so I headed across the river, walking a different way, expanding my knowledge of Cambridge and enjoying a new route alongside the backs of one of the colleges.

It was a nice walk, a little chilly and I was glad I brought a hat. A little over two miles before I sat down to dinner, and then about a half mile walk back to the hotel. Not a ton of exercise, but not bad.
