I am going to try something different this week. I have been so focused of trying to get a certain amount of miles in during each run that I am getting a little bored with my routes. There are many places within my city that I would love to cover, that up to this point, I have not because I cant measure exactly how far I ran. There are so many cross streets, short cuts, parks, trails and parts of the city that I have missed.
I have decided to go out and run by time. What I mean, I am going to go out and do at least 30 minutes and just have fun. I will go where I feel like it and not worry about exactly how far I went. I will estimate based on a 9:00 minute per mile pace. For example, if my total run was 45 minutes, I will mark down 5 miles.
Does anyone else run by total time instead of total mileage?
