Sunday, Mark and I started off the day with a trip to the gym....FINALLY! We had (I say had as in the discussion was.) planned to get back to the gym like we had been every morning. As of Sunday, that was the plan.
After the gym we took the pups to Onondaga Lake Park.
Alexis had her friend over with his twin sons and they played in the pool for a bit in the afternoon while Mark cooked on the grill. The meal ended up to be just the two of us, but I enjoyed the grilled chicken. YUM...still sticking to the healthy eating. Evening ended with tv time Games of Thrones!
Monday...back to work and it was BUSY!!! My calendar looked like I wouldn't even get a lunch break.....but my noon appointment was not there...so I took a walk. I was in the city, in my old stomping grounds actually. Meadowbrook/Barry Park. I saw a few people walking from the view of my car, but I wasn't sure if there was an actual trail.
Tuesday....no Mark (He does overnights on Monday) and I was tooo lazy to get out of bed for the gym....Another missed day. Oh well...better find another activity to make up for it.
So I did. I had an early appointment then plan to meet one of my clients down town to go to the department of Social Services. I called her once I got downtown and she reported she would be about 1/2 hour late. I finished up some notes and took advantage of the beautiful day with a walk.
I set my walk app and off I went.
It was a beautiful day....and it was getting HOT! Not to self; do not wear a skirt when its hot out, your walking and your legs rub together. OUCH!
(My flowers are not looking good...geeze)
Wednesday...wow the week is going fast...NO Complaints here!!!
My lunch walk found me at Websters Pond. I had walked here before, but it was local to my appointments. I realized that there was a trail that lead on the far side of the pond and decided to take it.
I even was greeted by this little fella.
Well, hello there... your not a duck are you? I believe you may be a Canadian goose.
The trail was about 1/2 mile in total. Not my usual mile power walk, but it was enjoyable just the same. Wonder where my next city park adventure would take me.
Thursday offered a new park experience. I was located in the city's south west side in an area called Straffmore. There are several beautiful old houses off some of the cities not so desirable areas and right in the center is this amazing little park. Upper Onondaga.
Although there is not a trail that leads through and around the park there is an identified walking area that runs along the roadway and I saw several runners and walkers taking this marked off area for a bit of exercise.
It was SUPER hot out and I was shocked that there was no one enjoying this beautiful pool.
However, there was an additional roadway that was off the main trail leading straight up in order to get a better view of what I could make up as a goat. Well I simply had to get a better view so up up up I climbed. Huffing and puffing all the way. And at the top I was welcomed with another great view of the city,,,and
I was impressed with this gem. Most definitely will expect another "stroll" someday.
Friday I did not take my lunchtime walk. I ended up flexing out my lunch time to leave a little early as I had a date with the Adirondacks and time with one of my friends/co-workers at her family camp. Hooray for the weekend. TTFN !!!!
