Winter Long Runs

Long runs of the last 6 weeks- mostly road-bound, but finding the good dirt and hills-- from the running log:


Coop 20 road loop (19.75, 1000' climbing), 2:16:44, 6:55 avg. 7:10's up the climb (through mile 8 on Montague Rd in Shutesbury), fast down to CoOp, 6:30's or so home from the gutter. Feeling very good. W/ Stoneman, Matteo, Ethan. http://www.mapmyrun.com/us/north-amherst-ma/coop-20-route-275086423 
5-Jan172:07:00truly awful long run, felt terrible from the start and should have cut way back. But, ran up into N Leverett w/ M+A then was committed to 17 (measured online, 7:28 pace)...they dropped me at Cave Hill Rd, and I slogged home 8 miles in misery, stride feeling off (wore Montrails on the rds due to snowy/slushy shoulders) and legs failing. http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/341880105 

w/ M+A, up Sand Hill Rd/down past Buffam Falls, back through town and UMass. 7:15 pace, 1000' ft climbing. Felt good. http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/344446929
rd loop into N Leverett, over the gutter (snowy!), measured on mapmyrun to 17.92, 7:04 pace. Felt good. Snowy/slushy rds. <600' climbing despite Cave Hill Rd climb. http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/347918665
26-Jan161:52:00from Matt's, Pratt Corner Climb, down S curves, through Leverett. 15.82 on mapmyrun, 7:04 pace, 808' climbing. http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/350796847
from the Bookmill, w/ M+A-- mostly road loop, w/ some snowy trail on the big climb after Dry Hill Rd to WSF, back down into N Leverett via some trail and rds. 1228' climbing, under 7 min pace on rds despite the hills. http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/353694965
