Well I’ve done it again, guys. Saturday night was the wrap party for my last movie job and, well, I went a little overboard at the open bar. The consequences of my whiskey consumption included dancing until way too late (with a Prince impersonator!), making an ass out of myself in front of people who may or may not still be my friends, crying through three pounds of eyeliner on the Subway while trying to justify my awful behavior, and a hangover that made my 16 miler look completely impossible.
It was…fun? Sorta? Ehhh…
I knew I had that 16 mile run on deck Sunday, but I got caught up in the party anyway and just plain got out of control. And even if we don’t get hammered, drinking can lead to late nights and sluggish mornings. It begs the question, wouldn’t it just be easier to give up drinking during the training cycle?
So I want to hear from you, Salties! Do you drink alcohol while you’re training, or do you abstain or cut back? And if you abstain, how do you handle social drinking situations?
