Travels and no training

My stomach has been a bit dodgy the whole time I’ve been in Asia.  I have no appetite, and if I eat, I get stomach cramps and other bad things happen.

It wasn’t too bad on Wednesday, but Thursday after my CTC attempt, I had troubles all day long.  It didn’t help that it was over 40C and humid.  Basically, I was sweating the whole day, even when I was thoroughly air conditioned.

I flew from Shanghai to Taiwan on Thursday evening and I got to my hotel around 11:30.  This was perfect timing because I had a conference call from midnight to 1:00AM.  After that, there was a bit of email to do, so I got to bed around 2:00AM.

Friday, 28 July: No training

I was getting picked up at the hotel at 8:15AM.   I decided to sleep instead of working out.  I would be getting back to the hotel around 6pm, and I figured that I could workout then.  My stomach was still bothering me.

I skipped breakfast, had a couple of meetings in the office, and then we went for lunch.  I was feeling a bit better, but maybe the sashimi and cold noodles was a bit too much, too soon.  I suffered through a long car ride, a customer meeting, and another long car ride.  I was glad to get back to the hotel, but working out definitely off the agenda.  So, I guess you’d call that a rest day.

I went to bed around 10 and slept until 5.

Saturday, 29 July:

I left the hotel at 7 for the airport.  My stomach feeling a bit queasy, but I might have been just hungry (I thought hopefully).  I’m in the lounge now, waiting for my flight to Macau.  I put my stomach to the test with some toast.  The reaction indicates that the rumbling I felt was definitely NOT hunger.  Well, maybe this will clear and I will be able to do a light workout in Macau this afternoon.  At least I hope I can do some exploring.  I’ve never been there.  I’ll be staying at the Cotai Grand Sheraton


I guess things could be a lot worse.
