Winter Running Routes

Normally I try not to run the same route on consecutive days. I find this helps me stay motivated. Fortunately for me when I run home from work there are a few different routes I can take to to get home meaning I don’t have to run the same route on consecutive days.

Unfortunately, one of the downsides of winter running is that I cannot use the bike paths because they are not plowed. This limits my options to following main streets to get home from my office, forcing me to follow the same route for most of my runs.

I mentioned that I try not to run the same route on consecutive days. I find it helps keep me motivated and it also allows me to alter between flatter and hillier routes. This won’t stop me from running returning the winter but once the spring arrives I will look forward to being able to alter my running routes once again.

 Does the winter weather alter your running routes?

  1. my winter route has been solely the canal: down one side, back the other. it was miserable today though, lots of slush and water. sadly I only got smart after 8k and decided to drop down and run *on* the canal instead. much smarter idea. along the side there’s enough snow on the ice and you don’t slip whatsoever.

    1. I stuck to running along the canal a lot of the time as well. I can’t wait until I can start running through the Farm and Vincent Massey Park again.

      1. same here, I really fell in love with the hills in VMP over last summer.
