Early Jaunt

Was out for the run at a ridiculous time of 6:45 in the AM as I had an all day conference that started at 9, and since most know that I'm a ridiculously slow eater I need a good ~3.5 hours to get a proper breakfast. Ran a reasonable 5 miles at a fairly comfortable pace, and would liked to have gone on another 1-2 miles only for time contraints. Will try to go bit longer tomorrow all going well, although this scratchy throat I'm developing might say otherwise.

Quick note on the conference, generally a pretty reasonable insight into the level of obesity, diabetes and other lifestyle-related illnesses in Ireland, and basically how the current health system is inadequately organised to deal with them. From 9 to 4 every speaker basically ripped the government before the guest of honour, the Minister for Health, gave the key note speech. Needless to say she didn't take questions, as there were more than a few in the room with knives sharpening. I was a little disappointed as I would have loved to have seen Mary Harney get ripped a new one, but it wasnt to be.

I am also fighting a strong urge to go drinking, as I am now longer a dog owner. Balls.

5 miles, 35:22
Avg HR = 156, max = 164
Rec after 1 min = 38
