Bad Bad Bad

Well I suck. I know I am smarter than the Leah that existed last night. There was a barbeque at the lab last night with free food/beer/wine and so on. Yesterday morning I was super runner/healthy girl, yesterday night I was back to my undergrad drunk girl self.

What the hell happened?

I know better than to drink that much with almost no food in me (I had a bagel before our run and a bowl of Cheerios after the run for lunch and that was it!).

I couldn't go into work today because I was more than just a *little* hungover. Let's just say it wasn't a good scene. At least we aren't running today although if we did have a run scheduled I probably would have been much smarter last night.

Damnit. I am so pissed at myself. Maybe I am being too hard on myself. It was just so fun last night talking to some friends and meeting new people. I don't remember the last time I went out and had beers with people. Jason and I are so busy with work schedules and running and commuting that I forget how fun it is to let loose and have a beer or two (or apparently the entire keg).

Anyways, tomorrow I will go to the lab to see the end of the New Perspectives conference. We have a 4 mile recovery run tomorrow and then a 12 mile run on Sunday. Can't wait to get back out running after the atrocity that was last night. sigh.

You l'il alky! ;-)

Wasn't Jason there to make sure you didn't do such an "atrocity"?

Jason said...

Sadly, Jason was at work from 4-midnight and couldn't get away. Had Jason gone with, I'm not sure how we would have gotten back to Chicago.

That being said, McDonalds was the only thing left open by the time we made it back to the city, so I'm not sure which one of use did more damage to our bodies.

That's the good thing about being 'younger'...quicker recovery time...at least from the beverages.

This also reminds me of the great quote from Risky Business...

"Sometimes you just have to say...what the f*ck?"

Once in a while, ya gotta go off the plan. I'm sure you didn't do any permanent damage--you ARE being too hard on yourself! (This from someone who just ate two pieces of cake at work (damn, damn work!!) and is supposed to run 10 miles tomorrow. sigh.)

cake is yummy. I also pulled the greasy breakfast cures a hangover line this morning and had bacon and eggs for breakfast (so delicious)

Oh geez! We all have to have drinks like that, every now and then, right? No harm...no foul!

Nicole said...

We all have to let go sometime and go back to undergrad days. So don't feel bad. Have a good run

I wish I could drink like that - a 5 month old that wakes up at 4am whether you want him to or not puts a bit of a damper on that kind of activity...really ANY kind of activity.

LeahC said...
