The half-marathon is looming in the horizon, and I need to ramp up my running thing. Since I’m a routine-loving-girl, I tend to run the same routes all the time. There’s one for 30min run, one for 45min run and one for 60min run. So because I was going today to attend some business afterwork at town next to my town, I decided to do my run there. New route and that kind of thing. I pick a route which started and ended near a beach, so I could go for a little swim afterwards.
There were three possibilities: 1k route, 3k route and 5k route. I first thought doing 3k twice, but for some reason at the crossroad where 5k route went further and 3k route turned back, I went for 5k. I thought that well, I can always run that 1 or 2k on top of the 5k if I wanted.
The “road” was soft and pretty ok. It was nice to run in the middle of a small forrest, and not on a pavement. But then the path became narrower and narrower, until the path almost disappeared.
But it was truly a great change in my dull running routine. I decided that I’m gonna do more route changing, though it seems stupid to drive somewhere for a run.
