View my walk details here.
It's been three weeks since my last jog/walk, and I didn't have time to post about it. I went home to Manila, then back to Baguio again, then my work schedule changed, then I got sick (must be my body rebelling against the midnight shift). I haven't figured out when I'll resume my walks--mornings really are the best time because it doesn't rain/drizzle much, but then again sometimes all I want to do is sleep after my shift. Afternoons are fine too, I guess--if it doesn't rain. Oh well, we'll see after I get rid of this cold.
That bright and sunny morning, I decided to just go where my feet would take me, with no set route in mind--my only plan was to stay hydrated and have some snacks around, so I brought my hydration pack and some biscuits.
I started my tracker at the little roundabout near Mines View Park. I figured since I was going downhill, might as well pick up my pace. I jog/walked along Outlook-South Drive all the way to Teachers Camp, where I walked around and learned a bit of history.
After Teachers Camp I crossed Leonard Wood and made my way to Brent, then to another street I haven't walked on before: Laubach Road, which gave me this view of the cathedral and the buildings nearby.
Then it was down to Gen. Luna, and I decided to check out the Aguinaldo Museum again to see if it was open. It wasn't. (I checked online and saw the museum days/hours are Tuesday to Sunday, 8am-4pm. I went there on a Tuesday and it was way past 8, so I really have no idea why it was closed. Renovations, perhaps? I'm really stumped.)
By this time it was getting hot, so I decided to head on to Burnham to cool down. I trudged my way up back to Leonard Wood then down again to Session and Mabini, crossed Harrison and looked for a nice spot around the lake where I could refuel.
Overall a nice walk, my longest for this project so far. Can't wait for the next (body, please cooperate)!
