I did not want to run more than a few miles, I did not want to run a new route, I didn't want to leave the neighborhood, I didn't even want to have a run where you're amazed at how much better you feel at the end of the run vs the start of the run because it means you had to make it past the sucky part.
So, despite all of this, I ran a new route, east on Alderman, south on 19, and then east on Nebraska, turned right onto 19th street thinking I could cut through the side streets to get to the Palm Harbor Y, which you can't do, so I turned around, went back to Nebraska, and then headed up 18th street, and then to Pennsylvania Ave to 16th Street where the Y is located. There were some new hills to run on, there's even a hill to get to the Y parking lot. I went inside to use the fountain and take a gel, then headed back out and used the cut through to get back into Westlake Village where I took Village Way back to the house but going the long way.
So, I ran more than a few miles, ran a new route, it felt like an adventure and I was glad that I had one of those runs where you feel a ton better at the end compared to the beginning.
