First of all, I’m not encouraging stupid behavior in any way. Getting a hangover, is quite dumb in my opinion, I mean cause of drinking too much. And it sucks. And I did it Friday.
We went to Merimasku on Friday, which is quite close to Turku.
My good Finnish friend who lives in Australia, comes home to Finland only once a year, and that once this year, is now. On Friday we went first, out to archipelago on a boat, where we had a blast! Then we came to Turku, and then I, should’ve gone home, in my opinion… but I did not. I stayed out, not for too long, but long enough to catch myself a little hangover.
My running coach, Päivi, ran the Marathon as well. She had branded herself! Maybe the guys were able to finish, because her back told them to Fight Back! ;)
If you know you drink and stay out long enough to have a hangover, you should just rest next day, try to take it easy and get over it. I did not.
My recumbent was on repair at Visan pyörähuolto again, and I had promised to get it on Saturday. I woke up at 8′ish, after poor 6 hours of sleep, and went to get it at 12 o’clock. The Paavo Nurmi Marathon was going on yesterday, as well and I walked through the starting area as I went to fetch my bike. This gave me the idea to go, and cycle 16 km to my Mom’s at Satava, straight away!
The guys were feeling like this after finishing… respect! I was feeling like that, cause I wasn’t smart.
It might have not been the smartest decision I’ve ever made. Thank God I had my water bottle on me, but even with it, the way there and back, was the roughest for a while.
Last night I went to bed early, and now I feel awesome! It’s a miracle what sleep, and sleeplessness… does! I will also go running today, not a Marathon, but 5,2 km altogether! 400 m X 3, 800 X 2 and 1200 X 2.
Now I’m gonna go there, ADIOS!
