Fit by 50 blog – finding a new route

Find a new rouIMAG2568te!

Today, I took a little diversion off my normal route running along the Chester canal. I guess I just thought, been there, done that, what’s new?IMAG2567

The sun was shinning and whilst it felt cold, it felt like a good idea to explore something new.

I’m really glad I did.

I have run parts of the route before – but this time, I took a chance and stopped and asked a cyclist and then two dog walkers if I could find a way back home – and they all just kept pointing me in the right direction.

Okay, its a bit scary because part of me was thinking – oh gosh, how far am I going? Or what if I get lost and have to walk back.

So, I kept my pace moderate – ignored my split times from my mobile phone app and just kept on going and in the end, I got back home.

I also found a new 12k loop – with less than 1km running alongside a road.

I also found a new part of town which I’d never really been to before – and I spotted a big sports shop and gym there too – so I might just go back (yes, in my car this time) and pay them a visit.

My goal is to complete a 10k at below 50 minutes. I'm late 40's & want to keep healthy and fit for a long time yet... and that's what drives me to run.
