I’m at a conference in Philly.
It is 2F/-16.5C outside.
There is snow and ice on the pathways.
There was an open bar last night.
I had five pints of beer.
Just do it anyway.
Five and a half miles run at an 8:13 pace around center city. I’ll call that my Friday easy run and switch it. There was no way I could do a tempo run today because of the location (inner city) and ice everywhere but an easy run should always be possible.
Running from a hotel means that there is always a welcoming committee at the front door when you return. And they will always give you props for being out there!
Thankfully no side effects from the beer.
