I'm dumping him. (Read 1868 times)

    Oh, it won't be easy. When I spend time with him, I get a warm, fuzzy feeling. But here's the thing....he's not supportive of my training. He makes me want to stay in bed when I should be out running. Sometimes I think he knocks me around, because I wake up with a killer headache after a night with him. And when I'm with him, he coerces me to say and do things that aren't typical of me. He's just bad news for me.

     

     

    I guess I won't completely rule out the occasional hookup, but it's hard to go back to that once you've been serious, you know?

          Alchohol will limit your ability to train - The amount of the limitation is different for everyone.  Some people are happy to give a little peak performance up for the enjoyment alchohol gives.

           

          I have been dry since February 13th.  I will have a one night stand with booze on April 21st and again on May 5th.  Other than that I will not drink until after my goal race ends June 3rd.

            I have two upcoming half marathons. My plan is to not drink any alcohol till after the 2nd one (May 13).

              +1, and this whole thread makes me feel bad about my own willpower.  It used to be so strong, heck, I made it through college not drinking a drop during XC or track seasons...

                For me I would stay dry the whole time - But big events are big events

                 

                April 21st is Carmel Marathon and part of the fun is to drink with a couple of RA'ers.

                 

                May 5th is opening fishing weekend - The one time a year I see one of my good friends - No, we do not fish up north - we golf and drink.  But I am showing up really late Friday night - So I cannot drink and will save all my drinking energy for Saturday.  We golf 18 Sat and 18 Sun.  But I will be back on the wagon Sunday.

                           Heck no.  That day has been a long time coming.  The time for willpower is the time between now and then.  If I subtracted HALF of my alcohol calories from my diet over the past few months, I'd be way past what I needed to shed the few lbs to good racing weight.

                              Oh, wait! May 5 is our anniversary

                               

                               

                              It's also Cinco de Mayo. So much for being on the wagon.

                              Janie, today I quit my job. And then I told my boss to go f*** himself, and then I blackmailed him for almost sixty thousand dollars. Pass the asparagus.

                                It's also Cinco de Mayo. So much for being on the wagon.

                                 

                                Exactly. One year, we were in Mexico on our Cinco de Mayo anniversary. I don't think we'll party that hard this year while visiting Tulsa.
