About Me

My Photo
My real life is a lot like THS (True Hollywood Story) except there's no fame, fortune, or drug addiction. Instead, I'm happily married, have two children, and a dog who's prone to barfing at 3 am. I love them all, but I also have to run away from them every day. I always run back, though.

The Aftermath

Okay-dokey, looks as though I'm going to need to put a baby gate up around the computer on Thursday nights b/c I cannot be trusted. And good lord, I can NOT type when intoxicated!

Soooo, yeah, I had a good bowling night. First game sucked, but then the beer kicked in and I did much better in the 2nd game, and then I had two shots and more beer and still rocked that alley in the 3rd game. Unfortunately, our competition was tough, so we didn't win all the games -- I think we took home 5 out of 9 points for the night (2 points per game and 3 points if you get total pins: I believe we won one game, but took total pins). And even though I showed up to bowling ready to go to bed -- I was soooo tired yesterday -- by the end of the night, I was wild! And my husband, who wasn't feeling very good and was totally sober, was a little annoyed with me. But I had fun.

Anyhoo, aside from drinking far too much this week, it's been an irregular week in terms of everything: including running. I had my rained out run on Monday. Our walking on Tuesday was also rained out, so we did Dance Dance Revolution for 45 minutes (it was a good workout, but I suck at DDR), had my 5k on Wednesday, ran 3 miles last night -- slowly b/c I was just dragging, and I was thinking of doing something short again today. I guess we can label this week a "cut back" week even though that was not my original intention. My long run this weekend is also a little shorter, 9 miles, b/c I decided to go back to the novice 1 program and integrate some of that schedule with the one I've been using. The long runs were just too accelerated for me, I think, in the novice 2 program.

But for now, I need to get to my chores: hubby has me on trim-painting duty, so I'd best get to it!

Ah, Jess...

Glad you're in one piece this morning. :)

I'm with you on the accelerated runs thing. But the good news is, there's always room for modification. Which program are you training with...higdon?

David said...

Paint fumes should be excellent for the throbbing head. Get some fluids in you (the non-alcoholic kind) and go knock out a good run.

Wes said...

LOL. Blogging while intoxicated. again :-) You are too funny. I was expecting a picture of beer in all those shots of your spruced up pad! Since both my boyz are out of town, Dee Dee and I cut loose a little bit last night too! I, however, could not find a computer that was on ;-)

I would love to drink with you someday because it's pretty rare to find another tiny girl who can keep up with me (I am not a cheap date). Don't stop the post-bowling posts - they're hilarious!

L*I*S*A said...

Tee hee...hope your head didn't hurt too much!

I'd love a cutback week...anytime now. I'm going to seriously say that after tomorrow's 17-miler, too.

Nikki said...

Where are the reno pics? We are in reno H-E double hockey sticks too....and guess what I went to home depot for tonight? TRIM! :p

Anyways, glad you got online...very humerous to find your posts on a number of blogs *poutingitdidntgetadrunkcomment* Just kiddin!

No baby gate. You give us all a great laugh, of course all in good fun!

I am now joining you and fellow blogger Tiff on Hal's Novice program, so we will now be on the same page and plan. Looking forward to it!
