03/17/2015 Happy St. Patrick's Day, change of plans workout

First, Happy St. Patrick's Day!  It's a great day to be Irish, go drink some beer, eat some soda bread, and get some corned beef.  On a side note, even though I'm Irish, I think I'm having mexican for dinner tonight!

Well, if you read this blog, you know what my plans were for the week.  Consequently, I stepped outside this morning with the intent of running a 10 miler at a slightly faster pace than comfort.  However, I got out side and was greeted to a lot of snow and ice still on my route.  So, I hit the road here and my run changed drastically.  It felt good to be on road again after basically running in a small circle on wood floor for the last few months.  I found myself pushing the pace a bit and decided to go with it.  

I also realized about 15 minutes into the run, that breakfast would have been a good idea.  I have't eaten anything since last night.  Oops.  I turned in a solid 4 miler in about 30:35ish.  I averaged a 7:40/mile over the duration and am happy despite it being shorter than I wanted.  What are you going to do on no gas in the tank.  Maybe I will hit up the treadmill tonight to conclude the workout to get in the total distance.
