Alright I'm taking over the updates for the time being. Our most proficient updater "urxc" is out of town for the remainder of the week.
Yesterday, from what I gather, went as follows:
Ziggy woke up hungover around 11. His sleep has been very fitful, he claims that he can not sleep for more than 20 minutes without waking up the morning after drinking. He hopped a ride to campus and suffered through an hour long review for a chemistry final. Ziggy went out immediately after and hammered out 16 miles alone. The final pace for the run was slow, around 2 hours, but considering it was in 8 inches of hard falling snow that's actually a decent effort. Drinking was started immediately after, he put away 3 beers in the shower, then grabbed some food at the dining hall and went to the field house to watch some of us do intervals. He talked to our coach for about 30 minutes but was still pretty well composed at this point. He then went and showered (again, it's a favorite pastime of his) and put away 4 more, and brought one up to the dining hall. At this point he was really hurting, the first couple he said tasted awful, and he was fighting will everything he's got not to heave in the shower. Ziggy had his 8th in the dining hall and then took about an hour break to eat dinner and clear out the system a bit. He got some coffee, as he claims that exhaustion is getting to be the hardest factor at this point. A group of us were headed out to the bars for a party, and Ziggy was planning on going. He got home and started to get ready, but with the daunting task of 10 more beers by nights end, Ziggy decided a crowded bar wouldn't be the best environment for him. So Ziggy forwent tail chasing (a rare decision for him) and settled down by the fire to watch the Shawshank Redemption. I left him there and headed out, but our freshman report he drank the 10 slowly but steadily, he was through 8 by the end of the movie, and then had his last two along with a lot of chinese food and was done a little after midnight. He's still in bed right now, but he's awake. He says the hangover this morning is bad, probably the worst it's been, but that may just be from the chinese. He's been drinking water, but not an outrageous amount. By nighttime he's peeing every 20 or 30 minutes, and for whatever reason his theme of the week is upspout, meaning he only pees upward, arching the stream into the bowl, I'm not sure what that's all about but it's making a bit of a mess you can imagine. He'll be doing a lot of cleaning on Sunday. One of the biggest challenges it both the toilets in the house are out of order, you can imagine that's rough on him in the morning.
To answer some other questions, the running for him is bearable, he has run up to 120+ in a week before. He says the long run Sunday was really brutal, and Monday he was having trouble getting up and down stairs, Monday's runs were probably mid 8 minute pace. Since then they've been back to normal easy run pace, probably low to mid 7s. He says the runs actually help get of the hangovers, but they also make him get drunk a lot quicker. By nights end he's usually a bit of a mess, Tuesday was the drunkest I've seen him, 17 beers in about 6.5 hours. Most mornings we have to tell him how the previous night ended.
That's all I'm able to get out of him at the moment. We still stand at 89 miles and 70 beers, there's talk of going for 120/110 but I think 100/100 is impressive enough. More updates when they happen.
