So, once a month I get a massage and I'm always tired for about 24 hours after.
However, I still like to get some fresh air and exercise, so this will be just be a short slower urban hike.

So, today's 6 KM is just a short loop both starting and finishing at Rosedale Station.
Interesting spots include

  1. 'Ramsden Park'
  2. 'Stop Spadina Alleyway'.
  3. 'Sir Winston Churchill Park'
  4. 'Republic of Rathnelly'

This hike will be on a combination of paved paths, neighbourhood sidewalks, dirt / gravel trails, a few fields and an alleyway.

In terms of hills, there's probably about 2 decently climbs.

I'll attempt to stop at the washroom in Ramden Park about 5 minutes into the hike. However, its not always open (which is really annoying).
Otherwise, there won't be any other options.

We'll aim for a slower pace of 3.5 to 4 KM/h

Post hike if anyone is interested, I'm going to head over to the Black Camel for a sandwhich. Arnie's always raving about this place, so might as well give it a try. Its literally across the street from the station.
