I miss beer (why running in the mornings just isn't the same)

    Okay... I'll come clean. I like having a beer after a workout. If it's winter and I am skiing then it's usually wine, but after a good ole summer BFR I am finding it hard to believe there's anything better for recovery than a nice cold brew.

    Recently... in part to avoid the summer heat... I started BFR in the mornings and although it's enjoyable... I felt like something was missing. Then it dawned on me.... no beer . At least this is the case for me as I'm finding it hard to justify a pre-work shot of fermented ale... so I guess I'll just have to go without... or at least save my morning runs for the weekends.

    On second thought... maybe the heat wasn't really that bad. ;)

    Well, there's always ice cold

    Well, there's always ice cold chocolate milk ;) Besides, it's got to be noon somewhere in the world by the time you're finished with your run :party:

    Like shoes... I think it's a social norm thing. Even my Dad, who drinks a six pack a day, doesn't touch the stuff before noon. Unlike shoes... no one has yet written a best seller about the benefits of morning consumption.

    Maybe this is why I want so

    Maybe this is why I want so badly to meet some local BFRs... I sure do miss beer, people to drink it with, and the rationalization of exercise to make the calories "not count"!

    Larry and I were thinking up

    Larry and I were thinking up some chia shots (think jello shots), they'll be available in the pub as soon as I figure out how to make them tastey.

    If I am not working the next

    If I am not working the next day, I don't mind having a beer after a run, but not before. It takes away from my workout before the run. I am not much of a drinker like I use to be long ago.
