I managed a 3.2 mile this afternoon. It was more like a speed walk than a run in 50.38 minutes. Two minutes off last weeks run, but its a restart.
I'm down to once a week where I'm going into the pub.
I hear you all SL BWF, and I agree
Its the isolation and lack of company that's crippling me.
I keep saying I will go to AA etc, I just can not motivate myself to. There's a mixed one, on a Wednesday more in the centre of town, than on the other side of town, which is not easy to get to.
The local On Trak did not work for me this time. I was trying to do too much at once. I think EDI and others including SL BWF have said, it takes all your mental and physical energy to stop.
Sorry to hear SL and Cinder's are not well, hope you get well enough to run properly again soon.
Counselling is getting tough, but is helping. I'm also going into a forum and website called Pandora's project (aquarium). There been similar experiences to me, and its very supportive for everyone, self help in many ways.
anyway happy Easter everyone.
Apart from the health issues, I hope your all okay.
I'm going on holiday with a friend who's alcohol dependent. It was booked December, so I was in a bit of a state, not the best time of year for me.
I hear you all, but. I'm trying to do one day at a time, and am hoping for not drinking for the day of the holiday. I'm toying around with how much, or little I will drink. But in another post, I said want to wait till after the holiday, whether I want to stop completely, or maintain it at a minimum potential, that being the recommended levels, set by the the professionals.
He's talking about going to Goa for two weeks boozing, but as the above has stated, I will see if I can stop for these next 6 weeks, before making my mind up.
I won't be drinking anywhere near the amounts he talking about for himself, but that's his choice.
No run today, but I am hoping to get out Wednesday,
Good marathon time SL, when I finally get to my HM I would be glad just to get anywhere near that time, dividing it down to a HM time of course.
Hope all goes well with training watching London Marathon, and your personal training, is going far better than mine, which is non exsistant.
I'm hoping to stay off the beer for the next two weeks, so I'm hoping to get out most days over the next two weeks.
I'm going to my boat at long last next Tuesday, lots to do. I hope to do a walk if nothing else, 5 K most days when the tide goes out. Then do work on boat, upper body work.
My counselling finishes just before I go on holiday, I already know that its going to be very boozey two weeks. But on returning...
I can start thinking of going back to On Trak. The only problem with them, is they throw course after course at you, and I find that so hard to cope with. With AA I'm not one to sit down and listen to other people's stories. perhaps its time I tried. There's three during the week, but 2 are 8 till 10 pm. I couldn't try to socialise asmy last bus 11.05pm
Ar well posted too much again, sorry. I really do hope I can get back into training soon, I've enough of booze. makes you do all sorts of crazy thing
I hope knitting works trigger2. BWF I hope cold gets better soon, as with your niggling problem to.
