Mt. Hope

Ran my Mt. Hope loop this afternoon. This road route is great. The climb to the top is a major buttkicker and the rolling hills that follow are pretty fun and scenic. Good choice since the snow banks are still high making the back roads an even more sound option than usual.

Run went well. Legs felt pretty good and though a 7:53/mile pace would normally be easy, I'd call it moderate given the hills. My heart always feels like it's going to explode by the time I reach the top of Mt. Hope. It's steep.

Shorter, easy run tomorrow.

Ran 11.1 miles @ 7:53/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Extremely hilly.
Upper 30s, sunny.
Saucony Kinvara 3, shorts, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt, buff, gloves.
