I had a goal of averaging under 9 minute miles. My first two miles were right on target (8:48, 8:50), but I decided to push myself for mile 3 since I didn’t plan to run the full 6. I ran one of my fastest miles ever – 8:18! At that point, I wasn’t sure if I was approaching the puke threshold from the speed or the hangover. I was definitely sweating out some vodka. I slowed down for the next bit and ended up running 3 more miles and making it the full six miles (8:45, 8:58, 8:52). Apparently drinking and running works for me. Maybe it’s the carbs?
