I’ve been a very naughty boy
Well the best plans of mice and men and hey ho I’m back on the cigarettes. Not in a huge way, but any way isn’t great, I think over the week starting on Monday I had a pack of ten, during the week I had a pack of twenty and yesterday and this morning I polished off another pack of ten.
Stress and stuff, not great so I reached for the Marlboros again. Sheesh still never mind I still managed to get out for a run this morning so that wasn’t too bad, despite smoking and not running for a while I managed to post up a good time and my chest didn’t feel tight or anything nasty like that.
Anyway I got up bright and early at 6:22am and had a cup of coffee and then drove down to Seaton. I made the mistake of only wearing a t-shirt as the morning had looked quite nice, there was however a stiffish headwind and it was cold. I tried to get warm on the run out but to no avail. I barely got warmer than cold and if I’d been doing this for more than a couple of miles I might have been in trouble. Thankfully though the run is split in two and on turning around the run changed into a different animal completely, the wind was behind me, I was nice and toasty, lots of good things. Also while I running the first half mile a girl popped up in the distance and a third of a mile away and then a couple of minutes later an older gentleman popped out bisecting the distance between me and the girl. I soon melted the distance between me and him, despite his grey hairs and bald-spot he was still cracking on a fair pace and I was happy to pass him. The girl though wasn’t so easy and it took me nearly the full stretch to catch her up, she had a good pace going and I was pleased again to find that I could get past someone who I’d have thought was running around about my pace.
Had some healthy water, jumped in the car and found a quiet spot in a car park and quickly knocked back three ciggies.
I’m constantly the secret smoker, laybys, country lanes, car parks you name it, sometimes on dark nights I find myself in laybys with people up to no good in the same spot, being a smoker though even doggers look at me with disgust.
I’ll have to crack this again but still all is well and good with the health apart from eating too much and smoking.
My vitals today came in at:
Weight: 11 stones 7.6 lbs
Visceral Fat: 10
Not much different from a couple of weeks back, still it’s good to see things stabilising.
