I went back limping and in pain.
But nothing can't be solved with a little R&R and some popping of painkillers...(I LOVE Diclofenac!)
Actually...that was the lie....at least the R&R part anyway.
I'm a habitual pill popper so THAT is expected of me.
I wasn't keen to rest...I figured "active-rest-day" was more of my thing...but after nicely baked from the oven, I found myself extremely nauseated with a killer headache on Monday.
I was so nauseated I couldn't really eat much on Monday.
Was probably hypoglycaemia to a point that the headache transformed into dizziness.
Had to cancel evening walk....*boo hoo*
(but luckily it rained....so I could at least blame something else other than myself!!)
Monday afternoon.....the loose bowels started......until my stomach finally turned itself out and vomited whatever content that was in it that night.
Went to bed feeling as horrible as ever....even more horrible than running the 25km again in the same route and condition!!!!
Tuesday.....not taking anything orally.
It was a water/Milo/water diet.
In the back of my mind, I was hoping I'd lost some weight by the time this gastrointestinal upset completes it tyranny.
More loose stools......another vomit session that night......and cancelled bike session as well!!! *sob sob*
Still more or less the liquid diet of water/Milo/water....but threw in some fruits, tofu and minimal amount of meat.
Still some abdominal colic and bloating-ness.....but at least I don't feel like I'm gonna collapse any time soon.
In fact I feel good enough to hop on the bike.
....which I did.....for bout 10km or less as the sky suddenly decided it was gonna release all the heavenly-stored-rain any moment soon.
And also I was having some "gear problems"!
I swear...Tobias is currently having a hissy fit because I'm not riding it as often as I should be...
Anyway.....hopefully will get it fixed during lunch time tomorrow since heading back after work.
Will be following Maybel and 'the-extremely-dashing-youthful-looking-and handsome' Terence (I'm hoping for some free lunch for our road trip on Friday!!!) down to Johor for the Desaru tri.
Well...actually, they'll be going at 6am on Friday morning as they have some work to settle in our Southern state and I'm being a helper of sort.
Oh well....anything for free transport!!!!
