Well unfortunately I’ve been unable to keep my promise to myself of getting stuck into training this week. When I wrote my last post on Sunday I had a tummy ache, this got worse as the night wore on. I was chugging Mylanta all evening, with no relief. Put myself to bed early, thinking that lying down might help – it didn’t. It felt like my stomach was on fire, coupled with massive stomach cramps, it felt like my whole digestive system was in a washing machine with acid, which every few minutes would squeeze itself together. So there was no sleep… it was a terrible night.
Finally in the morning I woke BF up and got him to go get me some Buscopan from the chemist, which helped and I was able to get about 3 hours sleep.
I had to get on a plane that afternoon too – boy did I feel like crap! Didn’t think I was going to make it, and those 2 hours to Melbourne felt like the longest in history.
Anyway, long story short, I felt like a wet rag on Tuesday, but feeling a lot better today. I still feel lacking in energy, but I’m on the mend. Going to go to the doctor when I get home, as this is about the third time in a year that I’ve had one of these attacks, and I don’t know if its reflux, a food allergy, a stomach ulcer, or what! All I know is that I don’t want another one!
As a consequence of this I havent really been able to eat properly, if at all. I’ve been reluctant to eat and drink because of the repercussions! These things were sent to try us I guess, I might start back at the gym with some walking tomorrow morning – just ease back into it. Next week I’ll be back home, old gym, normal work hours, so I might actually get something like a normal routine accomplished!
Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to catch up with Lia while I'm down here - the Gods are against us I think, we weren't able to organise anything due to conflicting timetables. So it looks like I will have to wait until July! (not long now til the AFC!!)
My camera that I bought off ebay has arrived (back at home) – so when I return I will be taking lots of piccies! A new toy – cant wait!!
Thats about it for me. Going to spend some time tonight catching up on everones' blogs. Enjoy the rest of your week!
