Ice, Ice Baby

No I'm not talking about a bad early nineties rap song. I'm talking about my run this morning. It's been 4 days since our ice/snow storm and I was hoping that most of the ice and snow was gone from the sidewalks where I run. That was not quite the case. Despite the ice and cold (30 degrees when I started) I got a good 6 miles in.

Distance : 5:92mi
Total Time: 1:03:24
AVG Pace: 10:43
Total Calories: 930
AVG HR: 164 bpm
Max HR: 183 bpm
Mile 1: 11:55
Mile 2: 10:55
Mile 3: 10:04
Mile 4: 10:40
Mile 5: 10:14
Mile .92: 10:26
Zone 1 Time: 0:10 Distance: 0ft
Zone 2 Time: 0:12 Distance: 0ft
Zone 3 Time: 10:28 Distance: .9 mi
Zone 4 Time: 49:58 Distance: 4.8 mi
Zone 5 Time: 3:58 Distnace: .3 mi

I had a hard time staying in Zone 3, I was mainly in the low Zone 4 range. I'll chalk that up to the cold and the 3 cups of coffee I had before I ran. I'm not too worried about it since my pace was pretty close to my average when I'm staying in Zone 3.
I also know that an Long Slow Run like this doesn't jive with the Crossfit workouts I've been doing lately. I'm liking the Crossfit, but it's hard not to throw in an old style workout like this every once in awhile, especially on the weekends when I'm not doing any Crossfit stuff.
