Lady Date

Last night my roommate Danielle and I went out on a lady date to a local Thai restaurant, Bangkok 54.  I ordered take-out from there once before, and we’d heard the drinks were delicious so we decided to try it out.  I started with a Flirtini and Spring rolls, while Dani had the Q-tini and Crispy Edamame Strips.  All things were delicious.  For my main course I ordered the 54s Fried Rice and Dani went with the Bangkok 54 Golden Chicken ~Lightly battered and deep-fried and wok-tossed with special chef’s sauce with fresh roasted cashews.  My fried rice was delicious and spicy and had my nose running, and I snagged a piece of Dani’s chicken which was also fantastic.  We paid our bill, moved on to the bar, and three glasses of wine later finally called it a night and came home.

I’m thinking one Flirtini, and 3 or 4 glasses of Cab were not the best way to prepare for my long run today, because I felt like shit.  I really struggled through it and my calves were sore the entire time.  Can someone explain that one to me?  When I was training for my half my thighs would always be sore and my calves okay.  It’s the complete opposite this time around and I can’t figure it out.  Any thoughts?  Anyway, 6.5 miles in 57:30.

Again this week there was wind blowing in my face for the first half of the run.  That’s getting old.  I have no idea if I’m ready for next weeks race, at this point I’m just kind of crossing my fingers and hoping I make it through all 10 miles in a respectable time.  I guess we’ll see what happens.

I plan on heading out in a little bit to meet up with all the bloggers that are in town for the Marathon/Half Marathon.  I’ll be the one standing awkwardly in a corner not knowing anyone.  So if you see me there, say hi!  After that I’ll probably curl up on the couch with wine and be a complete bum, because well I’m tired, and a loser :).  Have a great Saturday!

  4. new to your blog, but I appreciate your story and look forward to reading more– i feel like we have a lot in common 🙂

    have a great night

  5. Were you wearing heels last night and you don’t usually?

    Sometimes when I’ve been out on the drink I feel like I’ve been to the gym I ache so much the next day!

    Just remember alcohol is technically poison to the body, it robs us of B vitamins, Zinc, Vit. C, electrolytes and water. It also does another crapload of things to the body which would take my comment to half a page!

    Lots of water and I’m sure you’ll be fine hun 🙂

  6. Hope you guys had fun at the meetup! That restaurant sounds wonderful – I want fried rice now so. bad.

  7. I love Thai food. I need to go out and get some one of these days.

    I blame the wind for my crazy slow run yesterday too – granted it was more of a light breeze, but it was still annoying. 🙂

  8. I’ve realized that I really can’t drink at all if I have to run the next day. Sad but true.
