22/05/22 – Staten Island day trip

Another hot hot day but it’s going to be a lot cooler tomorrow so we wanted to make the most of it. We got the ferry to Staten Island today to see The Statue of Liberty and get a little bit of shopping done whilst there. We managed to walk a bit less today, but still 5 miles, nothing too crazy though. We finished the day with a phenomenal Bombay Indian near our hotel.

21/05/22 – A central park day

It was absolutely roasting in New York today! We ended up walking about 15 miles around Manhattan and we’re now quite exhausted. But it was an excellent day in the heat, even if we did have to move from shade to shade. We saw a lot of Central Park and ate some great food. Day two done!

20/05/22 – New York City!

We’re in New York! We’ve had a really great (and very very long) first day. We flew here this morning, then spent the whole day wandering round, taking in the sights and sounds before finally getting back into bed 22 hours after getting out of bed this morning. It’s time for a well earned sleep!

18/05/22 – The breaking storm

It’s been lovely and warm here in London recently, which has been a welcome change from the cold front we had for the first part of the year! However this evening it seems to have reached it’s climax, as whilst I write this I can hear the rain thrashing against the window, the rumble of thunder and can see the occasional flash of lightning. A big storm is about to hit and it’s matching my excitement as I inch even closer to our holiday to New York!!

17/05/22 – Morning run sunshine

Last run before my holiday! Decided to give myself (mostly my knees) a bit of a break so that’s me done for the next week and a bit. But it was a lovely run to finish off with! 5km in 28 and a half minutes. Pretty pleased with that, I’m definitely getting faster even if I am a bit off my goal yet.

The rest of my day was getting a lot more work done and then packing my clothes!

16/05/22 – New holiday coat!

In a bid to get some sod’s law on our side, we bought new rain coats for our upcoming holiday! Now if it rains we’ll be happy to use our new coats, or hopefully because we bought new coats it won’t rain!

This week is my last on my current project so it’s busy trying to tie up many loose ends. Busy busy busy but it’s fun to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
