Last Night I Got Very Drunk And Ended Up Having To Walk Home. Plus I’m Going To Vegas Again.
I still haven’t ran this week. In truth I’m worried about my left knee. It’s still sore from last week so I’ve decided I’m resting it for a while. I am terrified of going to the doctor in case they tell me that I’ve got arthritis like my mother. It would be a real fucking nightmare.
Last night was great. I went out with the guys from work and we went to a cool pub in Kentish Town and spent about 5 hours there.
From there a few of us went down towards Camden and bought Buckfast and drank like chavs by the canal side. I’m not proud of myself but it was kinda fun.
We then went into a Cuban dance bar in Camden Market and I wasn’t really feeling the vibe there so I tried to walk it from to Tottenham from Camden. Normally I pride myself on my sense of direction but unfortunately this time I was completely fucking hopeless.
It took me 3 hours to walk 2 miles. I ended up walking in a circle right back to the first bar we were in.
I made it as far as Archway where I bought a bag of Mozzarella from a 24-hour-shop and ate it on the night bus back towards Tottenham. Truly fucking classy .
I got back home by 4am and I felt like shit really. I think that’s the last time I’ll be drinking Buckfast.
Fucking hell. I still don’t feel OK now.
I’m Running Las Vegas again this year.
All week I’d been thinking about entering the Las Vegas Marathon and last night I gave in and booked 9 nights in the Luxor. It’s not the best hotel on the Strip but I really need a break. The last 6 months have been pretty intense what with the move to England, the 100k and the book.
So I’ll hopefully see it as a time to relax and celebrate the past year. It’s been a frightening period but I know I’m through the worst of it all.
But above anything else I’m praying that my left knee is OK and I can start back to training properly on Monday. I want Vegas to be my 10th marathon. I’m still intent on running Munich, Amsterdam and Dublin all in October.
I just need to get back out there as soon as possible as all of this lying around is driving me fucking insane!
