Day 19 – failed juice fast, night swim class, and late night run
Weight update. 88.9kg.
Worked in the morning. Dropped by post office to pick up some parcels. It was my wife’s items, I am still waiting foer my other stuff. updated my garmin software on watch and PC, found there was a widget for prayer times. Came home late to try avoid traffic jam, but there was traffic anyway.
My wife bought some food. Originally wanted to just eat kurma and drink juice, but emded up eating a bit more.
I had a swim class at 9pm. Pool is only open 9pm-10pm during ramadhan. Thankfully they rang the bell exactly 9pm and not earlier. Met with a few other swimmers triathletes training in the basement pool. They originally wanted to swim at the lap pool, but it seemed greenish with some algae.
After class finished, I decided to go for a run. 5km run at pace 6.5. I was surprised to feel some strain on my inner right ankle, and a side stitch on my left. I withstood the pain of the stitches, ran slow to keep the pain bearable. I think my body is not used to running as it used to. I might need to start with short distances again. I will have to decrease my distance and intensities for my next runs. Maybe 3km at pace 7.
Came home before 12am, and slept not long after I went to bed.
I think I need to set my mind up the way I did when I tried the fast the first time. I am not sure what exactly I did. I might be losing some will power. I need to focus on why I want to do the long fast. Which is to lose body weight, so I can be faster on the bike and on the run.
