I used to hate it, but I'm learning to love it.
I took it nice and easy in the first 3 miles, just eased into the run. Based on my heart rate the previous week I wanted to sort of test the waters and see how my body was reacting. My heart rate was a lot closer to normal averaging in the 140s only going up slightly when I got to the hills. After the first 4 miles which are pretty solid climbing the whole way, I settled into a nice pace for the rolling hills in the middle of the run. Slowed a bit at the hill from mile 6-7 then settled back for a few more miles. Past the Andover Fire station towards the Andover Country Club, I love my run because I go past million dollar mansions and farms and golf courses and wooded areas. It's never boring.
