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.
