I Heart Beer
Goin' with the cure that never fails me
What you call the disease, I call the remedy
What you're callin' the cause, I call the cure."
-Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Another Drinkin' Song
I have a love/hate relationship with alcohol. It is delicious and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It's a wonderful social lubricant and makes good times even more fun and hysterical.
It also sometimes gives me a hangover, or makes me say stupid things after having one too many. In terms of running, it sometimes makes me miss a scheduled run because I'm feeling too crappy to lace up the sneaks. Because of my weight loss goals and training schedule, I've cut back on drinking quite a bit. Not that I'm a boozehound, but I enjoy my nightly glass of wine (or 2) and mimosa-fueled brunches.
This weekend I had a bachelorette party. One that lasted all day. I had a few beers. Okay, like 10 beers. I skipped my run on Sunday because I felt like ass. I basically lounged on the recumbent bike Monday because I still felt tired.
Lesson learned that I can still love booze, but in somewhat moderation. I can't miss two days of training because of one party! I'll keep updating how I balance my drinking life with my running life ;)
