Tracks vs. The Open Road

Jun 4, 2007 |

I used to prefer running on a track to train rather than running around the town. In fact, I would drive to the track to run.

However, after switching to the streets, I must say I wouldn’t want to go back to tracks. Nowadays, I trace out a route that is about the number of miles I want to run. I make the route a loop, so I finish back at home. I can easily add or decrease mileage by decreasing how many blocks I include in the route. I find it easier to run one big route, rather than do loops at a track, because I cannot stop anytime I want. I could stop running, but I’d still have to get home. Plus, I do find it a little less boring, since I am not always in the same place.
