Run 23: No Duh Free Run

Today was a good reminder of how we can fall in a rut. Every run I try to take a different route - running is boring and tedious enough, seeing some different scenery is the least I can do to keep it fresh.

But I realized today even though I take different streets and paths I tend to always run in the same general direction. I guess you could call it clockwise. Today I just ran the other damn way and was impressed by how different the run felt. Different vistas, new things I noticed on the roadside, a different feeling for the pace of it.

So, if you're wanting something different, try running your loop the other way. I know this is probably the most "No Duh" recommendation ever, but when it comes to running I seem to be pretty thick in the skull.

How was the run? Terrible! Thanks for asking!

I laugh every time I see a "running' post from you;-) good to know that there are things that even you struggle with; and selfishly happy to see that my pace is faster than yours (hehehe)!!!

      Not a “duh”. Good idea for a fellow running hater, I actually just tried that myself the same night you did, but didn’t really think anything more about it other than, man....this town i live in looks pretty cool if you take time to explore it on foot! Thanks for sharing.

        I agree with Veena, I love your posts. They make my struggles with Sculpt much be overcome-able. (humour has power)

          I agree to the insight. Wherever I have runic I am doing it on multiple days, I try to mixup the run so I can see different things.
