Drinking > Running

Ugh...what a week.  Not a good week.  A very drunk week instead.  I've been dealing with a lot of personal things lately and this week it all really affected me.

Monday: Supposed to swim.  Partner couldn't go.  Drank wine instead.

Tuesday: Uhhhhh....see this post.  Drank wine instead.

Wednesday:  Amazing swim!  Could totally do an Ironman.  First Day of Squat Challenge (20 squats)

Thursday:  Hubby worked incredibly late, depressed about Valentine's Day (I get depressed on EVERY holiday.  Don't even mention my birthday).  Second day of Squat Challenge (25 squats).  Drank wine instead.

Friday:  SO tired.  Squats are kicking my ass....literally.  Ran 11 miles.  3rd day of SC (30 squats)

They weren't an easy 11 miles.  In fact, my long run this week was the hardest run of my life.  I've never been that mentally detached from a run ever in my life.  Finishing it felt like the biggest victory of my life.  I should have a medal for that run.  I had a bottle of merlot instead!!!



Whenever I'm feeling down, I like to make a list of what I have to look forward to. 

  • Mud Hero - best hungover run you could ever do!!
  • Dinosaur run!  Taking my biggest little man this year!!
  • My MARATHON!!  I can't wait to cross that finish line.
  • MEXICO!  We're taking our boys in November.
  • Visiting my sister in Vancouver in July!
  • Summer!  My ass is going to look amazing after all of these effing squats!!!

  1. What is this squat challenge you speak of?

    1. I'm not sure who devised it, but it's a set number of squats each day for 31 days (I think it was originally a month long challenge). A friend challenged me to it, I accepted!

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!

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.

Spork.

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…
