Week 2 – Operation Blackall 100 – Challenge to ‘Ring the Bell’

Screen Shot 2016-04-03 at 10.17.38 pmLast week I decided to publicly commit to my training program and to update people on how each week went. So how did Week 1 go? See for yourself…

As you can see the week started off swimmingly and then come Friday I was not feeling well at all.  During Friday and Sundays workouts I was not feeling at all well. Friday I sensed that I was beginning to get unwell…to make matters worse I didn’t fully listen to my body and mind and went out on Friday night.

It was my last night in Kuala Lumpur with my friends and I didn’t want to stay home but stupidly instead of coming home after dinner I stayed out. I was already feeling under the weather so staying out till 3am (I never do this!) was plainly stupid!

Live and learn!

Saturday was a travel day which means I had 3 hours sleep and crap food. Saturday night I didn’t sleep well and come Sunday’s run I was sitting in the gutter dizzy and thinking I might pass out. I returned to the hostel and slept again. I spent the rest of the day drinking water, eating much better food and resting. I did go for a little stroll around George Town but didn’t push myself at all.

So Week 2 is upon me and I am feeling much better. In fact I got 10 hours sleep last night. Not sure if that is over sleeping but it has worked for me cause I feel pumped and rejuvenated today.

The swimming pool is proving difficult to find so that session may have to be later in the week. There is a pool but getting anyone to answer and give me a straight answer on timings is the difficult bit but I am still excited! Also tracking down yoga in town is proving a pain too. Two places used to have yoga but don’t anymore cause no-one wanted to do it… People no excuse!

Good news, I have started working at a co-working space in George Town, Penang therefore I am debating staying in Penang for month. So far, aside from the bloody humidity, it is proving cost effective and there are some great running trails (apparently) outside of town that I can explore on the weekend. For a month co-working space (desk and very fast internet is costing me $35.00 Australian! Pretty happy with that!

The weather forecast is not as happy!

What are your fitness goals this week?

Blessed Be

    Have you thought of maybe doing online yoga when you can’t find a class. Check out YouTube for free flows, I’d recommend Dylan Werner, Patrick Beach, Meghan Curry. You can also buy class bundles on CodyApp.
    Going to a class is always better but if you don’t have the studio/time/cash then this could be an option 🙂

      Hey Laura,
      I actually have Les Leventhal’s app. Has an intermediate Vinyasa class that I often do when I can’t get to a studio! More the merrier I say though!!! 😀 Thanks for the tip! x
