creature of habit or change lover?

Another new route today, W7R3.

Good news: it was a beautiful run through the valley, mostly on paths next to a stream and mill ponds; saw a heron that took off on spotting me; another successful run.

Bad news: tripped over a tree stump; had to open gates while jogging on the spot; left myself a steep set of steps in the last 2 minutes; had to double back on myself a little.

I always seem to change my route. I'm a person that eats a different lunch every day and definitely likes seeing different scenery.

How about you? do you alter your route or stick to what you know? why?

Am sticking to the same stretch of disused railway line as it's flat! And shady. And beautiful! Once we can do 30 mins we will try other routes where there might be hills....!!

Definitely alter! Variety is the spice of life! I’m actually going trail running tomorrow to see if I like that! 💪🏽

Well done with your progress!
