PLUS - beautiful country.
MINUS - it's approx 10 mins further away than Rileys Lock. I need to make these long runs "adventures in exploration" in order to get through them!
Last Sunday I ended up running 20 at Rileys...doing our normal loop but then going RIGHT (instead of left) when we hit the towpath (after River Rd/corn field section). I jogged the first mini-loop with Melissa then hit my first mile on the towpath in 6:30...dropped down comfortably to 6:15s, 6:00s and then hit miles 18 & 19 in 11:47, before cooling down. The goal was to run it comfortably without exerting too much energy.
