served up nice and cold from growlers!
what better time than st. patrick's day to mention how great it was to find captain lawrence microbrew at the post-race festivities yesterday! not only was this the second year in a row that it was supplied for the taconic road runners st. patrick's day races, but captain lawrence beer was also on tap at the post-race festivities for bedford "where the pavement ends" 5 miler last october! what made drinking this beer even more fun was just having read a great review of the brewery in wednesday's issue of the journal news.
anyway, st. patrick's day and beer aside, i did get in some running today. when i got home from work i went out and ran 6 miles, in 46:55, a 7:49 pace, before dinner. my legs felt stiff and pretty tired, no doubt it was the delayed soreness from wurtsboro. but at the end of the run i was glad that i kept the pace under 8 minutes and got in the miles.
after dinner i went back out for an easy 4 miles, in 32:21, an 8:05 pace. the extra miles brought the total up to 10 miles for the day. this was the highest mileage monday in well over a month. a great start to the week.
no green beer today - but plenty of water and good mileage made up for it!
