Yesterday, I ran for 2.5 hours, burning 2,297 kcals. My resting metabolic rate is 1917 kcals a day. I ate about 2100 kcals yesterday leaving me upside by 2114 kcals. The result was a huge, massive headache. I couldn't believe it. I went to bed and I was dying, absolutely dying. I got up this morning and ate and ate again, trying to mark some papers, but it was like I had hit a wall and couldn't think. I had an early lunch and have been eating crackers to try and get going. I'm feeling a little better, but it was a really strange feeling.

I had to take the car in today to get the passenger side automatic window fixed. Talking to the mechanic as I dropped it off, he was saying it could be up to £300 to fix, depending on the problem. I was upset about this and coupled with my massive headache, I went home pretty depressed. Well, it turns out that it is just the switch, which is only £75 to fix and the car doesn't need the oil changed, another cost I was worried about. So that was good news.

And Yoko's parents sent me an early birthday present, Part III of Haruki Murakami's 1Q84. That is likely to give me a massive headache, but in a good way.

And finally, my French homework, although daunting, has gone well so far. I just have to translate some stuff into French, speak it into the computer, and I will be 60% done with the coursework. Only five months left and I can go back to just hanging out all the time.
