    Merry Christmas Eve all. I'm headed out for 11 miles, the last 5 being a bit more frisky than the first 6. As for drinks, I'm pretty simple with beer, or a good Chilean wine.

     

    RMT3B...saw yesterday you were dealing with some injury stuff and general running stress. We all know exactly how you feel, and hope you recover quickly. Fear not, nobody's awe at what you've done will diminish if you have to take it easy for a bit.

      I have some crazy stories, too.  In fact, I'm surprised I still drink them, knowing what they do to me.  I make a mean cosmo.  Goes down like Kool-Aid.  On your ass before you know what hit you!

       

      Good luck on your run D!

       

      Weez, straight and to the point, nice!

       

      Kay, I have the funniest story you will ever hear regarding cosmopolitans!  Someday I'll share that...

      Spark, as popular as it is, I have not tried the captain yet.  I think I'm gonna resolve to do that!

       

      Wassup, bozy, Tom and April!

      Good morning Beth!  Wink

       

      Hi Flo!  Legend has it that a bartender in Alberta was inspired by The B-52's and that drink was the result.  I have quite a bit of their music as well!  Their music transcended genres, and has stood the test of time.  And besides, who doesn't love Fab 5 Freddy?  Wink

      Do you even run?

        Happy Christmas Eve Day!  Is anybody else besides me WORKING today?  HOORAY WORK!

         

        I got my speedwork in early today.  9 miles on the treadmill.  1/4 mile speed intervals with 1/4 mile recoveries.  7:35 avg pace.  Five of those intervals at sub-6:00 pace.  I pushed it hard today...tough workout.  Not sure I could have done 10 miles at that effort.  Good times.

         

        Good time at mom's house yesterday.  I always enjoy seeing my nieces and nephews.  Smile  Mom way overdid on the gifts to me and Wife.

         

        My favorite drink?  Coffee.

         

        Enjoy your 12/24, gang!

          Rough week last week. I only got in 64 miles and no LR my first week of training b/c the fibular head on my knee is tweaked. I'm trying to be smart and resting my knee today, hoping that by tomorrow, it will be good as new. In the meantime, Merry Christmas eve, peeps!!!!

            That was my experience exactly!  Took three days to come down off that buzz!  OOOF!

              I may or may not have spilled more than I drank by the time I poured my 5th glass.

                Are we related?  I drank five too.  Not a good decision!

                  Actually, it sounds like the perfect solution for getting through tonight.  I think I need to make another run to the liquor store.

                    I ended up doing only 2 miles on Saturday, I met up with some friends instead and we took our horses for a stroll in the woods. Yesterday was a very slow 8ish miles. I decided to take it easy and snap photos along the way which I rarely do, fun run. I'm heading out in a bit with my run partner for 6-8  miles.

                     

                    I hope everyone nursing injuries or illness feels better soon. Happy Holidays!

                     

                    ETA-- oh yea, my drink!  Right now coffe and cream.  Later tonight it will be a pinot noir, although I would kind of like to try a champipple :-)

                      I usually drink vodka and cranberry juice. Sometimes I add lime, 7-up, pomegranate juice, etc. I started drinking vodka and cranberry in my early 20s because it matched my lipstick. I like wine quite a bit too. SRD for me today. Smile

                        4.83 miles @ 8:40.  I would have gone for 6.2, but I got the bubble guts (TMI), so I had to cut that puppy short.

                         

                        SRD tomorrow...doing the Christmas thing.  I hope you guys have a good one.

                         

                        Oh, and my favorite drink is Sam Adams Boston Lager.  Non alcoholic would be root beer or kool-aid.
