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!
