I gave up drinking in January for the Cancer Research Dryathon & extended it for the Wokingham Half Mara on 12th Feb..... i only touched alcohol twice in 42 days....once for a mates 40th & once when the snow was bad & i had a 4 hour drive home from work ( 12 miles ) god i needed a beer after that !!
I lost 10lbs in weight and managed to reduce my Half Marathon PB by a mighty 60 seconds ! Woopy Feckin Doo !
This friday night i got leathered....Saturday i had a couple of vino's.....Sunday i ran a 10k & was just short of a PB !
Have a drink, enjoy it, dont go mad ! I think it does you good.
1.57 for me, exactly 60 seconds quicker than last year. Bit disappointing with time as i felt i was in much better shape, didnt touch alcohol for 38 days out of 40, and had dropped 8lbs in weight. My mile times were consistent from 1 to 13 but just couldnt seem to get any pace going
