Intercontinental Hotel

I was looking forward to the Winter Break to exercise more but on the first day of the holidays, my right calf tightened after a run in the park. Yesterday, I ran 7 kilometers in the morning and it did tighten again, but not to the extent two weeks ago. I think I’ll be able to run again. I am not sure what is causing this, although I suspect it is my inflexibility as I age. To combat this, I started Travis Eliot’s 30 for 30 Yoga. A friend recommended I try his workout and it has been so helpful for me. It is one of my top health priorities to increase my flexibility. Eliot puts us through a variety of poses and every workout has a different focus. I feel better, younger, and more flexible. Not only does it help with my body, but it also is a great stress reducer. I highly recommend yoga practices to anyone in their 50s.

My calves tightened even more in the afternoon when I took Obi for a walk. It was a beautiful day and I took some photos of architecture in Tashkent. Since getting a dog, I walk daily and often visit different parts of the city. It is Obi’s highlight of the day and I enjoy it too.

As you can see in the photo above, the Intercontinental Hotel is opening on April 1, 2023. It joins the Hyatt and Hilton as large “luxury” hotel chains in Tashkent. The building is under construction and is located very close to the Hyatt, Wyndham and City Palace hotels a block away from Amir Temur Square.
