Saturday I decided to take a day of rest. I went to Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park with my dog and parked at the coach house entrance. This entrance starts at Crum Elbow Creek.
The park, unfortunately, has a lot of poison ivy in it.
My dog was anxious to start the trail (you can see the trail map on my page, “Trails I like”).
When she decides she wants a break, however, you can’t move her!
I would have gone running yesterday, but I was very busy – one of my aunts is in hospice with Alzheimer’s-related problems (she’s in a coma) and my cousin is in town to help out, so we’ve been spending a lot of time together.
Today I went running around 1.20 p.m. It was mostly cloudy and 76°F, with a humidity of 62 percent, a dewpoint of 62°F, and winds S 13 mph with gusts to 22 mph.
I walked for 3 minutes;
(ran for 2 minutes; walked for 1 minute) 10 times;
ran for 5 minutes;
then walked home for a total of 41 minutes.
Run time: 25 minutes
Walk time: 16 minutes
