Penguin Tracks

Last night was the first official Turtle/Penguin training waddle. It was a success! Dina (of Dinatopia and DC Duck Fame) is the Turtle, while I am the Penguin shuffling along side, and she came up with these adorably apt monikers. We met at Union Station and walked 15 minutes over to the National Mall as a warm up. We commenced with the 3/1.5 minute (waddle to walk ratio) intervals for the next 21 minutes. We survived to walk back to the station to grab dinner. The salad and wrap we shared were both really good. I had never tried out the restaurant in the middle (Center CafĂ©?) But will do so again, for sure. I am dreaming of peanut sauce salad dressing as we speak…

Hopefully, this will become a routine. The added accountability and camaraderie seemed to help us both get the job done. I, for one, most probably would have bailed if I was on my own. SO glad that didn’t happen. It’s nice to look at my weekly tracker and already see 3 of 4 Activity Day boxes checked. I have until Sunday to get one more.
