It is easy to be brave from a safe distance
Sorry for the long delay in posts. It took a while but someone finally created a Google Maps powered routing tool for runner and bikers. It even lets you save your route. Below are a couple routes I have been looking at around my house:
- 15 Minute: A short timed route that takes just about 15 minutes for me to run.
- Here is the default 2 mile route I run around my neighborhood.
- 3 Mile Route: I have been looking for a good one for a couple years now. It took sixty seconds to find with this page.
- 3 Mile Number 2: Because who wants to go the same way every time.
- 4 Mile Route: Need a route that is longer than the 5k I will be running.
- 5 Mile Route: My first long, post 5k run.
- 6 Mile Route: This is a hill training route for my up-coming 10k.
- 6 Mile Route: Flat campus route for daily marathon training.
- 7 Mile Route: Final run before the Sept. 10k around Lake Hefner.
- 8 Mile Route: My first route that takes me through OU campus.
- 8.7 Mile Bike Route: When my shins get bad, and I have to take a break from running.
- 10 Mile Route: Double digits at last, and it only to me 9 years to get back to them.
- 11 Mile Route: At some point I am just going to have to circle the whole town.
- 12 Mile Pre-Half Route: Longest run before the half marathon in Tulsa.
- 14 Mile There and Back: Run out to lake Thunderbird rest stop and come back. Good hill work.
- 16 Mile Loop along Section Lines: Gotta love Oklahoma grid sections. Sure makes it easy to figure long routes. Sooner road and Depot Blvd mostly.
- 18 Miles East/West Lake Loop: Many marathoners don’t run more than 18 miles before their first. Hopefully this means I am within reaching distance.
- 20 Flat Route: First time over I-35 and back.
- 22 Mile Flat: Still trying to take care of my knee; so flat routes are the rule. Actual milage is a little over 22 but I honestly am not that picky any more… well at least until 26.2. Last long run before the OKC marathon!
