The 4.5mph wonder
Hello again, would you believe it’s another blog update? I swear it’s not just a New Year thing. Its more that I’ve found I can waffle about mundane things instead of waiting for monumental and inspirational things to report on. Like going to the pub.
Today I’m suffering from a headache, and have been since I woke up at 3am. The waking up at 3am is turning into something of a habit, as is the 4am and 6am wake-up slots. It’s not that I’m awake and alert at those times, but something keeps waking me up. I’d like that to stop. Last night’s extreme wind was likely to blame this time (atmospheric event, not internal gas). As a testament to how windy it actually was I got to the car this morning and found half of someone’s roof underneath it. A strip of corrugated plastic that’s used for roofing had been ripped off someone’s place and found it’s way under the car. It was as long as my house is wide.
I think I’m suffering headache wise due to last nights run around Penkridge. Yes, I finally joined ‘the lads’ on their weekly run. We covered 2.2 miles in 24 minutes, which is slow but a good starting point. I’m unfit, but not as unfit as I had thought - my muscles could take it (just), although my lungs and throat were hurting by the end. It was the final 50m sprint that killed me, but I wasn’t going to let Rich claim the glory unchallenged.
Yesterday saw me on something of a fruit binge too. I had an apple before going to bed, a banana and apple for breakfast, a banana as a snack before dinner (turkey and lettuce sandwiches, heavy on the lettuce) and an orange mid afternoon. Reading Unlimited Power’s diet section had something of an effect. I’m a tad dubious of some of the claims in that book, but I’m giving it all a try to see what happens. I don’t think I’ll be turning vegan though.
Possibly more to come in this entry later in the day…
Later in the day:
Nah, I’m afraid I can’t think of much else that I could write. Richard Burns Rally is definitely impossible to play using only a keyboard - god knows, I’ve tried. My headache is almost gone. I’m kinda hungry and at this moment am thinking about tracking down some food. Err… it’s still windy. Yeah, that about wraps things up for entry number 152 (which this is). Goodnight.
