Running Routes

I start all my runs from our home. This means I have never gotten further than twelve kilometers from home. After all: I have to be able to get back!

I run in circles, squares, loops, rectangles, and when I feel really naughty: in a triangle! Some routes are quiet, with nothing but me and nature, others feature cafes and restaurants.

I do my long runs (16 kilometers) on Sundays, because then my husband is home, and I get to stay out longer. Tuesday and Thursday mornings I run 8 kilometers, and Friday afternoon I run 5 kilometers with my son Jan (13).

My running routes

  1. Interesting! I start all my running routes from home, it is easier this way. I have about six basic routes that I run, combine, add to to make up the mileage that I'm going for.

  2. I like my out and back routes the best for mindless running.
    But:
    Looks like I need to add in some coffee breaks - for fun ; )

  3. I start my runs from home too. I don't know how well I'd do if I stopped in the middle of them for a coffee break. I like to get my runs done so I can move on to the next thing or don't miss out on what ever is happening with the family while I am running. Plus where I live, you'd find plenty of milk for in that coffee but not a single coffee shop!
