Pina Coladas and the pool.

Week 1 of marathon training is going well, but so far I've done more swimming than running.  It feels really good though!  
On Monday I swam 30 lengths (25 meters), Tuesday I did my 3 mile run, and today I swam 40 lengths.  The best part of swimming is still the awesome stretching at the end of it all.  Tomorrow is a 5 mile run and then 8 miles on Saturday.  I'm a little worried about the 8 miles.  I guess I'll just take it slow and steady.  I'm already
wondering if I should be following Hal Higdon's Novice 1 program opposed to the Novice 2.  I guess time will tell....

I found myself VERY hungry today.  1900 calories hungry.  I usually consume about 1400 calories per day.  Now, I know that I'll need to consume more as my training progresses, I just didn't expect my body to want and need it so soon.  At least the majority of it was good calories (only a handful of chocolate covered popcorn).  My new favorite snack is Iogo Yogurt.  I'm in love with the Pineapple-Coconut-Banana.  I best not ever buy the big tub for I will eat it all in one sitting.  Guaranteed.  If you haven't tried this brand yet, do it!  It's amazing!  Tonnes of flavors too!

It tastes like this, only healthier and less drunk!

Drunken Jenga

My husband and I are avid game players, as well as avid drinkers.  What could possibly be better than turning Jenga into a drinking game?

Making the game takes a little bit of time.  Each block needs an instruction.  The rules below allow for 3 blocks of each rule, with 3 blank blocks.  You can leave the last 3 blank, pick your 3 favorite rules to use again, or make up 3 completely random rules!  Try to use a permanent pen that doesn't bleed too much.  Write in large block letters.  Once you have the blocks all written out, you're ready for Drunken Jenga! 

Rules of Drunken Jenga


Boo!  I'm back.  
I've been a little MIA.  My stupid depression hit crazy hard this summer and it took me quite a while to get it under control.  I'm finally getting my shit together after figuring out a few things that I need to do to simplify some of the things in my life.  Things are going much better now!  I have a few appointments coming up to help determine what I can do to get this under control more long term.  Oh....the battle....
So, one of the things that I decided to do make life simpler was to only focus on this one blog: The Drunk Runner.  I really don't have the time or desire anymore to have 4 different blogs running with 4 different topics, so now you're going to get them all here!  Yay for you!  Most of my content on my other "blogs" is rather pointless and contains a lot of venting, but some of them are rather funny.  While going through them, I came across this and thought I would share it with you.  I had started a blog to rant about my…

Positivity, People.

Yesterday, a fitness account that I follow on Twitter posted this picture and I had retweeted it.  I've seen this picture a few times before and I really didn't think too much of it until I noticed today that a friend of mine had commented on it.  Her reply was "Nice use of shaming. I give it an A plus in ignorance. Working out does not always equal being fit and vice versa."  Based on this comment, I started a couple heated discussion in regards to this picture and the message that it is suggesting.To me, this picture says “ if you aren’t willing to put in the effort, then you don’t deserve the results” (which I believe to be 100% true), but to others it seems to have a much more negative message.
