This was the longest run in many months and my body could tell...some of the old hot spots flaring up again.  Need to start incorporating these in again.  Beautiful day after a snowy night.  Miss the trails though.  avg 9 or so.  Went on the Old Mill loop with some extensions around that neighborhood area.  The actual motivation for this run is because I have eaten 75% of a beautiful homemade cherry pie (lovely crust, tart cherries, hint of almond extract in the sweetness) so must run that bugger off before I start on the next eating adventure.

Spin up to the mouth of Neff's Canyon.  First 3.5 miles is just a slog uphill. Tried to keep the legs moving on this one.  Gets steep before the parking lot and my lungs were near bursting.  coasted downhill and home from there to finish off some fantastic chocolate chip raisin oatmeal cookies that really hit the spot.

Snowing like a buggar today.  Was going to trail it but no dice so went on loop around Skyline high down Millcreek road then back home.  Pushed some of the flatter miles to be around 8 and really flared the right inner adductor that gets tight the last few months.  Oh well..great to be out.
