Evening. My ears were burning, which reminds me it's time for the ear drops again.
Welcome back Tine. Good to hear that WP, OH, Chick, Ale, Dustin, OL, and everybody else are actually out there doing a bit.
My recovery phase descended all too easily into slovenly laziness. My alcohol intake frequency also gradually increased. I found that I was building up fatigue, not just tiredness, and in my job that's not good. By the end of the week I was in need of a nice drink or two, and Saturday nights became quite a steady, extended session as the stimulating effects were kept on the boil until I dropped off to sleep. An outsider would see this as getting drunk under the table.
Last Saturday the wife was away and I let it go.
On Sunday morning, although I was sober, the after effects were very much inside the system and I came over with hot sweats, near fainting, not good. Especially as I was in church.
There will need to be a lot of apologising to a lot of people.
I haven't touched the stuff since. I just realised how I had become locked into a descending spiral and it suddenly made me fear for my family, my marriage, my job, driving licence, flying licence, and all sorts of other potential repercussions.
As for training, I haven't got any races in the book. My heart isn't focussed on training. I haven't run for weeks. I wasn't even fit to go swimming on Sunday night, but I did manage a swim mid week. That's all I've done.
I hope you don't mind me offloading my head here. As you can imagine, there are repercussions of even seeing a Doctor (Notes are electronically available to other Doctors, and even to employers in certain circumstances).
Hopefully I can crack this habit before it's a full addiction. Meanwhile, I do need to make my peace with the Vicar, and the other Choir members.
Should I take up running?
