Unplanned Runs.

Sometimes, there’s nothing better than just running. Than taking random turns — running down unexpected paths, and discovering new parts about the patches of Earth around you.

This weekend I did just that.

After sleeping through the 4th of July race in CT (whoops), I decided to go for a long-ish run after I woke up. It was around 6-7 miles (actually ran without a Garmin! haha). Instead of going into the run with a perfectly calculated route and such, I decided to just run through the windy, hilly roads of Newtown. To see where the road took me.

So beautiful!

With the sun beating down, my legs pounding the pavement, and sweat dripping down my face, I had no plan. No set distance to run. No specific route. And it was fun. Refreshing. Felt more like exploring than a regular run workout (except for some of those hills! Connecticut isĀ hilly).

Where have your unplanned workouts taken you recently? Let us know.

Tri Hard,
