Finished My 6th Consecutive Half Marathon Today And Got Spat On By A Man.
After today’s run I’m now in uncharted territory. Never before have I ran over 70 miles/112k in a week and here I am on almost 80 miles with one run still to go. I’m half expecting my legs to snap off at any moment now and for me to have to scoot around on my arse to travel anywhere.
Today’s half marathon was a fucking half marathon. I started off into the winds and ended with it at my back. The last 5k was a bastard mental wise. The alcoholic within me was flaring up badly. I was thinking about ‘the magic of Vegas’ and how it would be amazing to go back and get fucked up on Fat Tuesday cocktails.
The magic of Vegas! Yeah right. How about the month of depression afterwards you fucking idiot?
I cringed, recoiled and wanted to bark at my brain but that’d have done no good.
I finished today’s run slightly quicker than yesterday’s one, mainly because some fucking idiot accidentally spat on me as I ran past him. Who in their right fucking mind spits in the fucking street? I could understand if he was being forced to suck dicks for a living, but anything short of that is just fucking unnecessary.
He apologised profusely but I just tutted and ran away like the passive-aggressive FANNY I am.
No booze, no blues.
I’m fucking glad that I no longer have to moderate my alcohol consumption. That was a challenge on it’s own. If I’d spent half as much time concentrating on my training as I did on my drinking, then I wouldn’t have lost my mind and gained 28 pounds in 5 weeks last year.
It doesn’t suck that I can’t drink. I can drink, but I don’t want to as I’m fucking sick and tired of the consequences and it’s all a lie. If there’s any serenity to be had in life, it won’t come from a shitty fucking drug like alcohol. So fuck you booze you motherfucking cunt.
I also had a kebab last night. A sober fucking kebab. Would you believe it? That has to be a first. Or a second. Here was what I ate yesterday. I’m pretty certain I now have an eating disorder as well as alcoholism.
