Our new version of a nice long walk

Yesterday, when we got to the Junction Playground, we decided to walk through the playground and exit from the 96th Street entrance instead of the Junction Boulevard (95th) Street entrance.  Knowing that the weather would be rotten today, we then got into a debate about how much farther we wanted to walk to compensate for being locked indoors for at least one day.  My husband wanted to go as far as the Grand Central Parkway, about 19 more blocks.  But I've managed to injure one knee and both ankles over the years, and I was nervous about walking back from such a distance.  So we settled on walking just another three blocks further than usual, to 98th Street, and got our exercise for the next day or two.  Here's the view.

This is our new goal for long walks.

Might be worth seeing a doctor over, at least once this pandemic will be over--no?

Thanks for the suggestion, Coyote. I've actually had physical therapy on the knee and the formerly-sprained ankle. My post-pandemic goal is actually to have physical therapy on an old injury to my shoulder that's been bothering me and clearly needs more attention.
