Marathon Diet With One Day To Go Until The The Belfast City Marathon Itself.
I’ve been on and off my scales like an anorexic ballerina terrified of failing a piss test.
The scales have been put away.
My mood is terrible at the minute. I honestly dunno why the hell I entered this race again. I had to go out for a quick 2 miler this morning otherwise I would have torn my own head off.
To try to cheer myself up somewhat, I went shopping for the run itself and came away with the following haul.
3 x Monster Ripper 500ml
4 x Lucozade Sport
4 x Lucozade Sport Lite
8 x Strawberry Pop Tarts
6 x Nutri Grain Bars
2 x Tesco Fizzy Mix
2 x Reese’s Cups
1 x Chicken Teryaki Pasta
1 x Bag of Maoam Stripes
I think that should more than cover it!
I felt extraordinarily self conscious approaching the aisle with that basket. I already look fraught enough, without wielding a basket heaving with sugar.
Fortunately the guy behind the till was very pleasant and did not ask any questions.
Otherwise I’d have been forced to pick up the Maoam Stripes, throw them into his face and yell ‘Keep the change you strange motherfucker!”
Time to put the shopping away and to get mentally prepared for this marathon.
