I am leaning towards doing my Sunday long run on the towpath. My plan of late is to extend my long run distance into the 18-20 mile range and the towpath allows one to cover that kind of ground in an efficient manner. I was clinging to the edge of life after last Sunday's 18 miler which makes me inclined to run on a familiar course as opposed to difficult run. I plan on starting at mile post/lock 5 and stowing some drink/energy gu there. I will head north for 6 miles, turn around and come back to mile post 5 (12 miles in at that point), take some gel and fluids and continue south for either 3-4 miles before looping back which will bring the total to 18-20.
Meet 7:50, get moving by 8.
