2:37pm - got to the gym after a great lunch with my parents and the BRfamily. We ate at a local restuarant called "Buffalo Grill" and I ordered a Buffalo burger with cheddar cheese. Decided I would eat that, then rest for an hour and a half before I hit the gym for my long run. Well, was supposed to run 12, but got to gym late and got in as much as I could before the gym closed, 8 good miles. I was a little concerned about eating before my run, as I usually don't, but I didn't eat breakfast this morning as I was running around doing stuff with the kids, and I knew that I had to eat something.

To my suprise the meal didn't bother me during my run. Not at all. But I did wait 1 1/2 hours to run LOL

Set the TM to 5.6 for the first .25, then bumped it up to 5.8 for the next .25, then went from 6.0 - 6.5 for the next 6 miles and for the last 1.5 ran at 6.0 Really felt good.

My avg HR was 136 cardiac drift: 147

M1 10:15 127 Cardiac Drift: 141
M2 9:53 134 Cardiac Drift: 150
M3 9:53 137 Cardiac Drift: 150
M4 9:52 143 Cardiac Drift: 153
M5 9:43 145 Cardiac Drift: 155
M6 9:14 146 Cardiac Drift: 152
M7 9:45 143 Cardiac Drift: 153
M8 9:58 141 Cardiac Drift: 147

Usually I have to wait at least 2 hours after eating to run, more after something heavy or spicy. Very cool that it didn't bother you and nice job on the 8 miles!
