why you should wait to run after eating a cheeseburger

yesterday was a good day.  I had Dunkin Donuts for breakfast (love their iced coffee), went on a long walk with some visiting family, Mason, Ryan, and Honey, ate at the Liberty and had their amazing burger, and then went for a run at the YMCA.

The only problem with this was that I didn't wait enough time in between eating my burger and running.  I spent the first mile of the run burping up cheeseburger and wishing I wasn't running at all.  "Do I just stop my run now and go home?"  "Should I just slow down my pace and get some miles in?"  "Should I speed up my pace so that the run is over faster?"

I finally talked myself into running the 4 miles I set out to do and am glad I did.  I felt so much better afterwards and even rewarded myself with a beer from Salud Beer Shop (in NoDa).

Mile 1 - 8:04
Mile 2 - 15:55 (7:51)
Mile 3 - 23:35 (7:40)
Mile 4 - 30:58 (7:23)

Yay for negative splits!  

Glad I finished off the week with 15.93 miles.  Looking forward to gradually increasing my weekly total to something a little more respectable ... maybe 20 :)
