Olivia's Marathon Misadventures

Consequences of Poor Decisions

This could have been my table at the bar last night. Erg. Too many beers. Work has been a little stressful, and instead of going home and running 4 or 5 miles, I decided to hit up Nashville's most popular 2-4-1 night: 2 beers for the price of one and 2 slices of pizza for the price of one.

Why? Why do I do that?? I have to run tonight and now despite my best efforts, I am still not hydrated enough and am completely exhausted. I never sleep well with beer in my belly. I thought I was doing so well balancing my workout and social schedule of late. WRONG. Boo!

My Monday morning training session went very well. I am getting stronger! But I wish we could work on more "bathing suit" kind of muscles...more abs, more arms...but we ARE running a marathon after all. So, I get it, but fo' real, back fat is whack. (I know I know, bicep curls won't diminish back fat, but I do need some lat work)

So I made a new iPod mix for my gym workouts and dreadmill runs - but with the weather being as nice as it is, I don't see dreadmill runs in my immediate future. YAY! But the mix is the BEST!! It is like 70s music, very Dazed and Confused. Loves it! A little Spirit in the Sky, a little More than a Feeling, Joker, Free Bird!! I think my office neighbor hears me singing to the music. Anything to get pumped for my run tonight. I'll be paying dearly for my fun last night. In the light of day, 2-4-1 doesn't sound as brilliant.

NAH, that's a lie!
