Feel the burn.

B is no longer for beer and I'm sad

I really should have thought this theme through a little bit more.  Words that start with B and are relative to my "commit to fit" challenge aren't the easiest to come by.  I've decided to go with "burn"  because I am already feeling it!!

On Saturday I decided to terrorize exercise my core and upper body after my run.  DOMS set in late on Sunday and after an intense work out tonight, I dread laughing.   

My commit to be fit challenge will include 3-4 strength training sessions per week in addition to my half marathon training program. 

It's time to feel the burn

Can you feel it?


  1. I was laughing by the end of the first sentence. :) Now I'm going to work out and I will chuckle now and again as I join you in the burn...

    1. I hope you're enjoying a nice cold beer for me as well!

  2. I always wish I had the motivation to work out harder at home. However, I am bad at taking it easy on myself. Not that my thighs, butt or upper arms would agree right now, but they could hurt more.

    1. I have this struggle as well. The gym is definitely more motivating! I find having a plan and knowing exactly what I'll be doing for my workout helps for giving it my all at home.

    2. I should really try that, but mostly I just make things up as I watch whatever I PVRed from the day before. lol. The side lunge with weights I think will be a repeat for me. My thighs are now screaming at me.

  3. Oh you're good! I am good at not being motivated. Visiting from A to Z.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I'll be sure to visit you!

  4. LOL :)
    Burn is a good word for B!
    Good luck with the workouts and with the Challenge!

  5. I don't want to feel the burn!! But, I know I should. Great theme! I can't wait to read more.

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.
