The End of Tempo Wednesdays

And the start of Golf Wednesdays.

Since the middle of January, Wednesday nights have been tempo run nights. I've run these little beasts in the freezing cold, pitch dark. But no more! Tonight, golf league starts and I am so ready. Even though I really am no good at the golfing, league is super fun.

Just a few reasons why Golf Wednesday will be better than Tempo Wednesday:
1) Beer.
2) Riding around in a golf cart instead of running "comfortably hard" (oxymoron, anyone?).
3) Beer.
4) When I get frustrated, I can just throw my club on the ground. There's not really a similar release in running. (Although if I don't do well this weekend, I may throw myself on the ground and see how that feels.)

Don't worry, I'm not giving up tempo runs. I'm moving them to Tuesdays instead. This is probably a good thing, because Tempo Tuesday sounds a lot better than Tempo Wednesday. Happy Wednesday!

Sounds like fun to me!!! Enjoy both your Tuesday and Wednesday nights. I give you much credit for running in the cold. Something I find brutal.

Yeah, I've found all this extra running this year has put my golf on the back-burner...not that it's very good when it's on the front-burner, but I feel guilty that I haven't even gone to the driving range yet this spring! After the race this weekend, I promise you, Golf Gods. Have fun at league; beer trumps Gu anyday.

That used to be my Thursday nights in the summer. Then I joined a running group and stopped golfing for a tempo run ... what was I thinking. You made me remember just how much fun it was ... oh and don't forget the beer.

I'm so sucky at golf and dno't even bother anymore - but I do like hanging at the club house. Now there's a place to meet men!
