As you all know, my Runner’s Who Wine Co-host and I like to enjoy a glass (or two) of wine from time to time (re: on the reg). We also enjoy distance running.
There’s plenty of debate out there in the world about whether or not alcohol and exercise mix, and while I’ll be the first to tell you not to over indulge in alcohol (whether you’re training for a race or not), a little party never hurt no body. Everything in moderation, right?
So what do I mean by “little party”? How do you balance your love of wine or social events that center around drinking (um, hi 4th of July BBQ) with your training and PR goals? That’s what Runners Who Wine Episode 13 is all about.
The overarching question in this episode is “can you drink while training?” Yes, but.
There are ways to enjoy your favorite Cab Sauv or Pinot (or beer or cocktail) and still be able to train properly and effectively, but you have to be smart about it. In fact, drinking in moderation can actually have some positive effects on your training.
