Hills, pub, school and childminders house


Just completed week 7 run 2 with my lad, and after lots of deliberating decided to do a different route. I tracked it in the car on my way home from work so I roughly knew the distance for a circular route that would take us home. Wow.... Laura and you guys are right, it makes a real difference to change the route. I had certain landmarks factored in ( as title!!). The only downside was the enormous hill that leads to the pub at the start of the run...tempted to pop in for a pint...but resisted!

We are planning the next one now, and also need a playlist, sorry Laura but that music is really getting on my nerves now. Its been so good to read all your wonderful blogs, thankyou, Julia

Sounds like you've become addicted to running! ;-) Good idea to change the route, especially now the runs are getting longer (and possibly more boring).


Well done - new routes are great, aren't they? :) I like the idea of a circular route as well. It always seems like you're getting somewhere instead of having to turn round and go back on yourself. Oh, and well done for resisting that pint :D
