Today was quite a busy day. I’m leaving Adelaide in two days (Thursday), returning in February, so I’m tying up some loose ends at work. I also picked up a few things which I’ll be bringing back with me to Manila.
I did not forget my planned HIIT session today, which was a little over 20 minutes of 30s run/30s walk near-maximal intervals. I tried to push myself hard, even as I was still quite sore from last night’s workout, as this would be my last HIIT session by the beach here in Adelaide this year. The sun was out, but the wind was blowing quite hard and a bit cold. Halfway into my workout (at my turning point on the jogging path), I felt pain on my diaphragm (side stitches). I didn’t stop though and still managed to complete the session, albeit a bit slower on the return leg, which was doubly hard as I was running against the wind on that leg.
I know I’ll miss these beachside runs when I go back to running through the relatively chaotic village streets of my home town.
Eat clean, train hard, expect success!
