Thursday morning detour alters my route

May 24, 2020

Learning to adjust my running route

I had to unexpectedly change my running route this morning. The road I run down every morning was closed around the second mile of the course I usually follow. At first I thought the work being done on the road would cut my run in half.

I decided, shortly after turning around, that I would simply alter my route. I found a way to turn what I feared would last only 4 miles into a 6 mile run this morning. I will find a way to turn it into a 10 mile run tomorrow if there is still a detour. I am determined to find a way to keep running long distances.
