First road bike

I'm an avid runner but am injured again at the moment and although I have a 30 year old mountain bike to use for bike rides, I'm thinking of investing in a road bike.

Any tips on what to look for?

I'm thinking of maybe spending a couple of hundred quid on a second hand one.

£200 2nd hand won't buy anything too swish. How far, how often, what kind of terrain, more fitness or more sport?

Thanks for the reply.

It would be on the road (I already have a mountain bike), a couple of times a week for around 10 miles a time.

More fitness at this stage unless I decide I love it, at which point, I would upgrade.
