Cocktails and Cardio

13 Jul

I have a philosophy: Booze Before You Bench! We go to happy hour at work sometimes, which used to worry me because I always go to the gym right after work. But last week, I had ONE Blue Moon before the gym. And I swear I had more energy than ever! I had the best sprint interval and uphill run EVER! I was relaxed, my muscles felt good.  Although, a few days later, I had 3 Blue Moons before the gym and that didn’t go so well. I was basically drunk, running on the treadmill, praying I wouldn’t trip over myself then laughing out loud at the thought. It’s not normal to randomly start laughing while you’re running on the treadmill. Yesterday, I had a flight of assorted red and whites followed by a glass of chardonnay and once again, it wasn’t as good as the one beer. I just felt sleepy.

So… I recommend ONE Blue Moon before EVERY work out 🙂 Let me know how that goes!

Beer! Run! Bodyrock!
