02.05.2018 Fast 7 miles on Zero fuel

Jesus, it's cold out.  I hate it.  It's like 27 degrees out, but so windy that it feels like it's 18, at best.  The wind just hurts the face.  I had planned on simply running a basic 6-7 miles to start the week and get the legs moving after the weekend off.  However, after being outside for about a minute, I decided to run a fast 7 miles so I could get the hell back inside as fast as possible.  I'm actually not kidding either.  I only ran fast so I could get it done asap.  The only thing I ate today was a banana at about 8:15 this morning.  Hence, the zero fuel.  I need to eat, but my fat ass is on a major diet for the foreseeable future.  I can dramatically improve my running by losing about 15 lbs.

7 miles in 51:18 total.  I was moving pretty good, considering the conditions.  It's about a 7:18-7:19/mile pace.  I race considerably faster than that, up to the half.  My Goal Marathon Pace, or GMP, will be 6:30-6:40/mile as I work up a little longer and do some more fast workouts.  

Tomorrow, it is supposed to be a bit warmer, but the wind may still suck.  I am running a nice long run of 15-16 miles, hopefully around 6:45/mile pace.
