Beautiful, warm afternoon. Ran up Mt. Hope and took a different way back that was shorter than I expected. Tacked on a loop around the pond to bring me into double digit mileage. I have a silly little streak going with that, with every run since Feb. 27th being at least 10 miles (if you exclude a hike up Mt. Mansfield in Vermont as a run).
Felt a little banged up today, but I loosened up as the run went on. Heart rate was a little high for this pace.
Not sure whether to label this route as extremely or very hilly. Will go with the latter since the climb up Mt. Hope and subsequent descent had steep grades (~4 miles), but the rest of the route was pretty gentle (~7) miles.
Ran 11.1 miles @ 8:29/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 141/171
