Hello Alex, glad to see you back.

That sounds like a bit much water to be drinking in a day. One time back in my student days a moronic friend of mine (a boy) bet his housemates he could drink a gallon of water in one go and ended up in A&E. Just saying.

On the positive side I did at least spend a lot of time on my feet, only slept about 2-3 hours a night, sometimes less not at all. 

Erm, yeah. Every cloud has a silver lining, it seems.

Well it's better than getting depressed about the situation...considering I'm yellow I'm feeling pretty positive about Copenhagen

I'm thinking now... lets see what advice I can give you... maybe you need to drink just that little bit more as 20 pints isn''t very much for a young  lad like you..

Yep, and another silver lining is that if he's drunk so much alcohol that he's turned yellow then he won't be needing a fluorescent top for all that night running that he's doing.

half the problem was alcohol, the other half was drinking far to many cocaine energy drinks.... they have 64 mg caffiene per 100mm, my heart was doing all kinds of crazy things some nights

Nothing wrong with being yellow.  We're all yellows fans around here.  IT's when you turn blue that you've got to start worrying.

Oh and welcome back  in from the cold.... try not to kick any balls ..

I turned green once....there's no continuation after that for me, I can't get ut of bed....so blue is a physical impossibility I HOPE

hold on .... before I commit myself to using any more of my hard earned words on this thread .... can someone remind me what it is about...  I seem to remember a 36 day training plan...

then i got caught up in that saga with whatshisname  so I have lost the thread...

so to speak...

Jeezus. You'll kill yourself before its time to race. 20 pints a day ? The runner who died of hyponatremia at London had a lot less than that. Do you have a grown up to look after you ?
12/05/2013 at 18:55

well that explains it all, the mood swings, the late nights walking, the thirsts

it sounds like you have got a serious cocaine habit 

don't know what to advise at this point.... hang on while i confer with the missus..

12/05/2013 at 18:55

I'm aware of the science.....which is why I'm also taking on extra salts/sugars etc

 

I'm not an idiot despite the overwhelming view of the thread...I just do idiotic things.

12/05/2013 at 18:58

hey that's not fair Mr Coward i never ever said you were an idiot...

fair enough i did call you an ejit but that was before i became aware of your drink and drug problems..

12/05/2013 at 19:00

"drug problems.." everyone is aware it's just caffiene right

So you've spent a week getting pissed, not sleeping enough and getting hyped up on "energy" drinks but you kid yourself you have done some sort of training because you have "spent a lot of time on your feet." You are deluded.

You had a bare month to train at the beginning and have wasted a week of that.

What a bloody clown!

Just FYI: 20 pints of water a day (given that you are asleep for a fair chunk of that) can kill you.

Also yellow = jaundice. That's pretty bad news and means your liver is not functioning properly. Clearly you are not race fit but I would would question whether you are healthy enough generally.

I woud suggest you get checked out by a doctor.

This is interesting.... "I woud suggest you get checked out by a doctor." I am nearly one.
