Week 7






The happenings of Week 7:  




Monday: Rest Day (pool closed)
Tuesday: 4 mile run.  
Wednesday: Rest Day (pool closed)
Thursday: 7 mile run.  This was a fantastic run!  One of those runs that you just don't ever want to stop.  
Friday: I accidentally drank a bottle of Merlot and then went hot tubbing.  
Saturday: errr......
Sunday:  14 mile long run!



My long run this last week was 14 miles.  Exactly 0.9 miles longer than the longest race I've ever ran.  I did it on my treadmill as I am still too much of a pansy to run outside.  The majority of our streets and sidewalks are either snow covered or glare ice.  I'm unsure of how I feel about this run.  I'm ecsatic that I did it, but it almost seemed like it was too easy.  I found myself wondering what exactly I did for the first 9 miles.  I recall getting to mile 7 and thinking that the first half of the run is always the hardest.

I walked a little and ran most.  14 miles in 2:25.  I am happy with that.  I felt that I could have kept going and that is my biggest achievement!

After my 14 miles were complete, I KNEW that I would be able to complete this marathon!  I registered for the Woody's RV World Marathon as soon as I was finished.  On May 26 2013, I will run a marathon.

Oh!  I also got my first blister during my long run:




This part I did not like.

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

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…
