  • I do this too. When I get to the end of my driveway On M-W F I walk to my right for 3 miles on mostly level ground. On T-Th-S I walk to my left and walk a 2-3/4 mile route that is up & down hills with a short straightaway. I see different scenery and meet different people. - by MARYMAC45

  • The more variety the better! There is always something new to see. Feels like fun and not exercise, plus we walk further! - by WHIPPETWALKER
    Good idea, if you get bored. For some reason, I never tire of walking the same route, so I keep it the same. - by VAINVT
