I live in a moderate-size village with safe places to run (mostly on pavements). I'm now starting to up my mileage and think that I might get bored with just running around the same routes all the time. There are also a limited number of hills (a bonus point to start with but not so much now). So I have two options: I can start to venture out onto the country roads (not inconceivable, some of them are quite wide, and they are mainly nothing faster than a 40mph speed limit); or I can drive somewhere and run.
So, my question, do any of you regularly drive somewhere to do your running and does this effect your motivation? I am slightly concerned that if I have to drive somewhere that I will lose my mojo!
