Yvonne and I did a 12.25mi (short) long run today, first time either of us over 10mi in a while, for me its my first >10mi longrun since straining the achilles in October. Just a little tight but felt nice to run, averaged out right at a casual 10min/mi. About 24mi total then, also the most I've done since October . But at least I'm getting my groove back on. Was about 35F out, a slight breeze on the return. Interesting thing is the bridges on the bike trail remained a little colder and there was still a dusting of snow on them from where the shadow of the railing was cast. I mean exactly... where the railing was just 3 horizontal boards, the snow was also in 3 long stripes down the trail. being the shortest day of the year the sun must have traveled fairly straight across the sky low to where it cast a consistent shadow on the trail.
