04/11/2018 6 miler, slow last few weeks, getting back out

Well, I got out for a nice 6 miler this morning at a pace around 7:38/mile.  It is nice out, sunny, but a little windy.  Over the last few weeks, I have drifted off a little from running.  Ever since the NYC Half, which was awesome by the way, but COLD.  I ran it in a decent, but just ok 1:36.  It was 29 degrees and windy, so yes it was COLD.  

Currently, my kids are participating in 6 teams, with 2 being coached by yours truly.  Also, still trying to sell the house, which means up keep and fixing, clearing garbage out and donating, etc.  Blah, Blah, Blah, right.  I have a ton of excuses. 

However, I just need to commit to kicking some ass.  It boils down to the fact that I, at some point, just began to quit based on the F-ing cold, garbage weather.  Anyway, I am back at it.  Nutrition is also going to be on point as well as I have 66 days until the Franklin Lakes Tri.  I don't want to be dragging my fat butt on the course.  I need to lose weight and run fast.
