Kath and I haven't spoken yet about what were going to do about the blog now we've completed the half marathon. We have decided though that we will run the Manchester 10km next May - though we are yet to enter cause it's £38 and we haven't been paid yet.
What I can say is that we both NEED to have something to work towards otherwise we go a little off the rails, become depressed and get exceptionally fat (the last bit only really refers to me).
I have been happy as a clam about this week off, it doesn't feel like a guilty week and I have been having a banging old time eating whatever I want (because of course I was so restrained pre-run - gafaw) including veggies sausage and egg butties, chilli onion rings, curry, lemon syrup pancakes and pizza. The pizza was ill advised due to a little yeast intolerance, it made my tongue swell up. I am thinking that this is bad because it didn't used to happen. I ended up accidentally biting it as well cause the little chubber couldn't fit in between my teeth. Don't ask me to say 'fluffy bunnies' after anything breadlike.
I think I am heading towards a rocky road of anaphylaxis. Death by pizza, not a bad way to go I reckon.
To stem the boredom I have been indulging in my favourite hobby - internet shopping. It's Kaths' too but she is trying to go cold turkey.
So I haven't been indulgent, I have just been investing in my well being. A chiropractor at the race made me sit on this and roll about on it to loosen my tight muscles (after she told me she couldn't treat me properly because I am under the care of someone else - yeah thanks). So its medically official - I have a tight bottom.
This thing's okay, it seems to get things moving again but I feel a bit ripped off because I spent a fiver on it and then I remembered I have two other such shaped balls that I use in the tumble dryer to help speed up the drying process. I am a sucker for gadgets though. If you fancy one for yourself here's a link
I think its about time to get out of bed now and do something productive, like tying a novelty toy to the cats tail and then watch him run around in circles for a couple of hours.
