Runnin' Instead of Bowlin'

Tonight is the first Thursday in about 3 months where I could be found out running at 9 pm instead of chillin' in the bowling alley bar.

The change was a bit disconcerting.

But it is nice to have a couple of weeks off of bowling before we resume with league on Sept 8th, and who are we kidding, the liver could use the vacay. Plus, it was good to get a 5 miler in. Time wasn't great (51:03), but I will blame the heat, as always and feel satisfied that I got the digits in.

So...now that I am faced with a Thursday evening without a pitcher of beer and a run through the Taco Hell drive-thru, I don't quite know what to do with myself. I would say that I could watch some TV on my new, shiny HD set, but Jerry is in the midst of freaking himself out while playing Bioshock, so I guess I'll go watch "Mad Men" in the bedroom.

On the plus side, it's gonna feel glorious tomorrow to wake up and not feel the slightest bit hungover. Huh. I'm not sure how a Friday will feel if I'm entirely sober.

It just wont be the same without a Thursday night drunk Jess post these next few weeks. Great job on the run

Christie said...

That just means you can drink more tomorrow. You know, to make up for all the drinking you didn't do today.

MCM Mama said...

Sounds like you need to have a post run beer. ;o) Good job on the run.

It was nice not to wake up to a hangover this morning. Although waking up early to prepare my potluck treat for work isn't much more fun, either.

Mendy said...

Enjoy your sober day at work. Just make up for it this holiday weekend. Nice run, Jess.

5 miles versus 5 beers...that's a tough change. :) Just remember, it's only temporary. LOL!

When I read to title of this post I was in shock, but then I remembered league play ended.

Have a great weekend.

I hope you at least had one beer while watching Mad Men in the bedroom. How is that show BTW? I keep hearing about it, yet I've never seen it . . .

Marlene said...

I'm going to be finding myself in the same situation soon. I play sofvtball Thursday nights, but pretty soon the season will be over til next May! Eeeeek!

Don't you keep an emergency bottle of bourbon for situations like this? :-)

Viv said...

I guess a 5miler can trump bowling. Can you come up with like a Thrus evening endorphin high post or sumfin. Have a great holiday weekend!

My Hub got so into a game once, I barely saw him for weeks. Soon you will graduate to a second DVR in the bedroom!!

Your liver is thanking you today.

I agree with Kevin, it's not the same without the drunk post.

Hopefully you don't get too out of the regular Thursday night practice...I strongly recommend some training shots or something.
