Here are some walks that I took last week:

Tuesday, Aug. 21: I drove back to the same area of Duke Forest that I hiked on Aug. 5 and 6 and walked 5.04 miles in 1:20:16 for a pace of 15 minutes and 56 seconds per mile.

Wednesday, Aug. 22: From my house, I walked north on Broad Street to Stadium Drive, where I turned east and proceeded to Rock Quarry Park, which I’d never really visited before. After briefly wandering the field in the park’s northern area, I started wandering through a forested area that I’d never realized was there.

After proceeding south through the park to West Murray Avenue, I picked up the Ellerbee Creek Trail, which I followed south to Northgate Park. Upon reaching West Club Boulevard, I turned west and followed the road Northgate Mall. Then I turned north on Guess Road and headed home. This journey covered 5.16 miles in 1:18:09 (15:08 pace).
