Where should I run?

If you can, it’s best to run away from busy roads. However, if you’re running in the dark then you should opt for a well-lit route. Ideally, you should do some running off-road, perhaps in a nearby park or along a dirt/gravel trail. Running off-road is much kinder on your muscles, bones and joints as the level of impact is reduced, making it a great choice for new runners. Try to vary your routes where possible. If you always complete the same circuit, it’s easy to get into the habit of racing yourself over the distance!
