Flying Back To London With A 2lb Weight Loss
Eat plenty of veggies you cunts or you will die of rickets like me.
Miraculously I lost 2lbs over the Christmas period. I think running 130 miles in 13 days helped somewhat. As did not drinking. You’re bored of hearing about that but it’s helped.
Easier to outrun a bad diet when that diet doesn’t contain booze.
My weight is about 202lbs now or 91.5kg. It’s been on a downward trend for some time but I didn’t quite crack sub 90kg like I wanted to last year.
I’m feeling more confident in myself though because of the small weight loss. When I’m slimmer I feel less self conscious and naturally eat less as I’m not trying to block out the discomfort of being overweight.
I also get more confident that I can run further. If I’ve put on weight it gets so difficult to run. I can feel my fat wobbling about like shit blancmange on me and I just want to punch myself in the head repeatedly for being a gluttonous fool.
I don’t have to do that now.
I am just off the flight back from Belfast. I did not enjoy it but it wasn’t harrowing either. I no longer build up my fear on purpose by watching those airline crash investigations shows. I watch planes landing safely now.
Back in the bad old days I used to buy booze from the duty free shop and rip the bag open in the toilets and stand there in the cubicle necking small bottles of wine and flushing the toilet every 5 minutes in case some cunt thought I was shooting speedballs into my balls.
Oddly thrilling but definitely symptomatic of a piss head. They don’t ask you that question on the ‘Are you a fucking alcoholic?’ questionnaires.
I am running the Country to Capital race in 10 days. Gonna be good fun. Doesn’t seem to be too technical especially since the last half of it is on a canal. I’ve heard there are angry geese at points so I’m gonna spend some time in Easygym practicing my left hook. Would love to take one down in full flight. Straight on the beak. Dies of the shock that a 6 foot 3 man could punch so badly.
Fuck you PETA if you take offence at this. Geese aren’t animals. They are schizophrenic clothes hangers with some fluff on them. They don’t deserve respect. They almost killed Sully. Without geese no-one would have given a fuck about him. So I guess he has a special appreciation for them. Probably invites them into his house in the winter for some Doritos with salsa dip.
They end up trying to sodomise his kettle.
It gets lighter each morning from here everyone. The preparation for a joyful summer begins with a little discomfort in the cold weather.
I will miss running the hills back home in the dark. Ran up the hills close to me at least ten times when I was back. I’ve had so much practice with my head torch over the past 2 weeks. If only I’d used it more before the Thames Path Challenge 100k I think I would have been confident enough to go out and finish it despite the vomiting.
Next up after Country to Capital is the Isle of Wight run in April I think. 106k which is a fucking lot. 6k more than a 100 isn’t that much. Nowhere near ready for a 100 miler at the mo though.
2017 has started well. Let’s hope it continues. Better go off and get some dinner. I’m back in the house and Tottenham are beating Chelsea 2-0.
The stormtroopers won’t be happy with this.
