It's been a really bad week, diet wise. Sunday night, on my way from home after a 14 hour shift I was in a hit and run. Completely their fault, I was cycling along my right of way. Just that the driver decided, as drivers so often do, that their couple of seconds was more important than my safety. I was on the main road passing small cross roads, driver just went straight through, against my right of way, sent me flying and didn't stop. Spent a couple of hours in A&E, had x-rays done and I'm lucky I didn't break anything. In a lot of pain though, four nights later. My knee has swollen a hell of a lot, gone down a bit now but still massive compared to how it should be. I can't seem to find a comfortable position with it. It feels stiff, I can't keep it in the same position too long. I must've twisted a bit in the crash because I'm getting a lot of pain from my right hip up.

I'm angry about the accident, all it'd have taken to prevent this is the smallest bit of courtesy. Instead, we've got another criminal on the roads and the police aren't interested at all in chasing it up. Obviously I was shaken when it happened and my bike is in bits, but I'm not so shaken by it that I won't be cycling again. As soon as I've got it repaired, and as soon as I'm able to, I'll be back on it but I don't know when that'll be. I've not been to work since, I can't exercise, I've been bored out of my mind at home so I've been eating crap to pass the time. I'm supposed to be going to Glastonbury next week. Well no, not supposed to be, I am going no matter what. Just concerned about how well I'll be able to get around the site. Obviously it was painful being thrown off my bike but it's the knock on effect that's most damaging. It's really taken the wind out of my sails.

Been a couple of weeks since I've made a journal entry. Had some calorific and drunken fun in between that last post and this one but I'm back to where I was before the fun now so that's ok.

It seems there's always something that can knock you off course. I went to five gigs in May, and that usually means a few pre-gig drinks and a post-gig bag of chips or whatever. I'm not really one for jumping around at gigs unless I've had a few drinks... Got to consume calories to burn calories in that respect, hah. I've had a great time though, and although there were a couple of points where I wavered a little bit towards feeling guilty for having a good time I've come out of it well.

So now I've got Glastonbury coming up too. I'll be there in less than three weeks and I can't wait. And I am going to overindulge and maybe I'll have an occasional waver of guilt, but it's not going to be anywhere near as consuming as it has been in the past. We fall off track, we get back on it, it's life. Plus, Glastonbury is a big festival and it's not like I can taxi around it.

For anyone who hasn't been, but has been to Manchester here's some perspective;

Off the top of my head, inside that boundary there are four train stations, four bus stations, about ten tram stops, two arenas, three theatres, two 2000-3000 capacity venues, two cathedrals, a shopping centre and about five museums and galleries. It's big... Can't wait.
