My runs have always been round and round and round a block of houses near me, followed by a park finish - the flattest route in my area (I’m careful not to run anti-clockwise or say “beetlejuice” 3 times btw 👹 - only kiddin’)
Yesterday (on my rest day), I went to Minchinhampton Common to walk a potential flattish route I could run. I currently run a bit over 2 miles in the 25 minutes of week 7 (i.e. slow) so used my fitness watch to measure distance as I walked.
I was shocked to see how far I have been running when viewed out in the “open” and in a “straight” line 😳 - we can run a heck of a long way by week 7! I didn’t realise running 5km was going to be such an achievement!
