Week 2

Week 2 went well.  A few ups and downs.  

How it went down:

Monday: Swimming day....sort of.  I only did 25 lengths and then fell into the hot tub.

Tuesday:  Awesome 3 mile!!  Ran it in my fastest time yet.  Legs were a bit sore, but I felt great!

Wednesday: Great swim!  Went with a different friend and raced 30 lengths!

Thursday: The plan was 5 miles, was goal was 6, reality was 4.  My knee wasn't feeling the greatest and I thought I best take it easy opposed to pushing myself for one more mile and not being able to do the long run.

Friday: Rest Day!

Saturday: 9 miles!  Went well.  Definitely need to look into energy gels and supplements.  The first six miles were amazing.  I was on fire!  Daydreaming of the big day and the entire world cheering me on.  And then I totally crashed.  Mile 7 was BRUTAL.  I jumped off the treadmill and rifled through my bag until I found a crappy, old energy gel.  It was disgusting and I kind of wanted to spit it out all over the gym floor, BUT I kept it down and miles 8 and 9 were achievable!!

Looking forward to Week 3! (Mainly because the long run is only 6 miles.....)

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!

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.
