Retaliate With a Run

4 Oct

You know, I thought that once I graduated college the partying lifestyle would die down, and I’d spend my weekends walking in the sunshine and sipping a glass of wine or two at night.out in nyc

This is not the case.

There is always a reason to get messy, and it’s just so appealing! Dammit! It’s pretty clear that hangovers aren’t unusual for me, hence my need to revisit this hangover post constantly, but I really do not like myself in the morning.

Mel- I don’t like you.

How do I make it up to myself? I run it out. I feel like a good, hard, run will un-mess my weekend mess and dissolve all the alcohol/2am pizza decisions that were made. Do I really this one run will fix this? Yes, one run will fix this.

Just kidding.

I’d like to blame my current couch position on Blockheads ($3 margaritas!) and The Hill(nice bartenders=free drinks, but otherwise very lame bar). Damn you both. I will retaliate with a run attack at approximately 4pm.

One run will not undo a weekend of debouchery and tomfoolery. But. It helps.

I attempted to preempt this feeling last night, and set out on a 4 mile run here, which felt awesome. I left at around 7pm, and it was already half-way through the sunset. The air was about 65 degrees and kind of humid, and Dave Matthews started off my playlist. It was a sweet vibe. I really like running in the dark. It makes you appreciate your thoughts (if you’re a pensive runner) even more so.

    Ok, don’t hate me, but I don’t get hangovers. I don’t know why because there have been nights where I’ve drank my weight in alcohol. I’ve only gotten sick once from drinking. But other than that, I may feel a little slow the next day, but I don’t get nauseous or head-achey. It’s so weird.

    That being said, I can see how an awesome run would make you feel better. I always love intense workouts the morning after I indulge a little too much. :-)

      Becca, you’re a lucky girl :) and I’m jealous. Glad you’re with me on the run routine!

    hah. the roommate and i were just discussing today how we sort of act and feel as if we’re still in college. embarrassing at times, but oh-so-much fun — totally worth the terrible hangover every once in awhile!

      I really do try to limit these activities, but there is always something goin on somewhere, and one drink leads to another!

    I often run as a hangover cure. The run usually is unpleasant and generally sucky, but the hangover is almost always gone afterward. I did a lot of running on my last trip to Vegas. It was the only way I could function enough to make it to the bar the next night!
