Right now I’m on a drinking weekend. Me and my friends are celebrating, that one of them will be married soon. I saved a lot of money for that, because we will play paintball, stay for a night in a hotel and we will be drinking a lot of alcohol.
And here comes in the question. I’m living a healthy lifestyle with good nutrition habits, I’m very active and I also look after my recovery. I want to improve on the bike, but everytime the question arises, if I should drink with my frieds, I’m feeling a little bit guilty.
Yeah, I want to party with my frieds and yeah I wanna get better in sports. So I made a kind of deal with myself. Every once in a while, it’s totally okay to drink. After all I’m not a pro cyclist and I only have one life. I wanna have this quality time with my friends. And yeah, it’s a little bit more alcohol now and then.
How do you handle this?
