A change of course, ever so slight

Today’s run (street): 2.5 miles

I’ve been working half days on most of the Fridays this summer. It’s a great way to extend the weekend and since many people don’t even come in on Friday, I find these mornings especially productive. The only issue I have is whether to run early or wait until noon and run in Central Park. We’re having an impromptu pizza party at noon so I opted to go out for my run this morning.

I just couldn’t bear to run the same route that I’ve fallen into over the past couple of months. The advantage of repeating this course is that I can know instantly, after I finish, how well I did compared with other days. I also know that following this course will get me back home in time to stay on schedule. But after a while the same course grows tedious, so I set out on a different path and chose streets randomly.

I ended up covering just about the same distance as I do on my regular route but at least the scenery was different. I came home a few seconds later that I had on runs earlier in the week, but overall I was running the same. I’m looking forward to a run without time restraints tomorrow and I hope to cover at least 8 miles on one of the days. In the meantime, this morning’s route was a nice change from the usual roads.restraints
