A little detox required........

.......two stag-do's on consecutive weekends have taken their toll, and hit the training hard. The weekend of the 27th April, myself, John Midds, Pete, Coley, Bear, Coops were in Bournemouth for Jono's Stag-Do, costumed up as Stormtroopers. 25 of us in total, with Jono dressed up as Vader, with Yoda (Nick the Dwarf) handcuffed to him for the evening on the first night there. Myself, John and Pete did manage 5 miles with 5 hill spints and press-ups the night before we drove down, but a weekend of bad food, beer and skittlebombs would have certainly undone those efforts. That weekend was the weekend after the Virgin London Marathon and Coley fell off the wagon in dramatic fashion, after many months of hard training. He recorded a fantastic time of 3:11:59, but got beat severely by Nell McAndrew, as we continued to remind him most of the weekend, if he does the event again, we've encouraged him not to stop for lunch as well! 


Crossing the line



This weekend it was in Krakow with James Davison (Peckle), for my Cousins Stag-Do, which was pretty much the same as the weekend before, with better weather and in a beautiful city! Hasten to say once I was picked up from Stansted by the wife-to-be, the weariness really began to kick in! The guilt has also kicked in now, knowing that my last meaningful exercise was 10 days ago, and whilst the two weekends will be a highlight for me always, I've really begun to agonise over missing my training. Trainers will be on tonight and I envisage a world of hurt for the next few days, but getting back to pre-stags seriousness is a must, and necessary, especially with our first group get together finally planned and ready to go the weekend after next. Most of us will be together for the weekend with a series of events and runs organised, and a perfect opportunity to get some banter flowing, don't envisage the skittlebombs will make an appearance though!
