Sunday Mar 4 #


No longer have a headache + blocked nose yaaaay. Going to back off more and try 15 min when I next do something) Think that even if I am a lot better in general life/thinking I have to get my body used to exercise.

Friday Mar 2 #

10 AM

Cycling 30:00 intensity: (25:06 @2) + (4:54 @3)
ahr:150 max:164

Spin with some EUOC gals :)
HR started quite high then got a bit lower over time. I possibly lowered the intensity but it's done this before on runs post jk last year. My guess is my body panicked because I haven't done any exercise for a while then realised it was ok so got lower. Definitely better than it increasing anyway.
Headache after but not too tired.
Edit: headache rest of day + medium tired.

Thursday Mar 1 #


Managed to do a reasonable amount of work in one go!!! Probably more than I could manage in a day a couple of weeks ago. Trying not to get too excited and to pace myself. :)

Can't deal with the cold at all haha. Went to bed with a dressing gown and fluffy socks on and ended up with a hoody, jacket, dressing gown, hat, fluffy socks and a 3am cup of tea. Although the hat came off at some point.

Uni cancelled tomorrow. Not sure what will happen with re-scheduling of classes or hand-ins for this week but confident that whatever happens I won't set myself a long way back.

As expected over the first couple of weeks of uni I got worse. I just didn't realise quite how ill I was. After day 1 I decided I'd go part time but still went to classes for the first 2 weeks. Despite not trying (apart from the course I'm still doing) and class on Friday being cancelled because we didn't have enough time to do the reading from Thursday, it was still way too much. I got to the point where I making scrambled eggs was very very tiring. Since then I've been improving. After a day I managed to watch some TV with effort but everything was a struggle for 4 days.
After a week and a bit I managed to watch TV without it feeling forced and was loving life. Gradually the days become fuller and less of the day was spent trying to fill time do I could go to bed. I started managing to do small bits of work although lying down obviously.

By last week doing some work didn't feel that hard. Being in s different environment in Spain meant it was hard to judge if I was improving and where my limit is but I did improve. Luckily I think I'm better now than I was before Spain. At least I'm managing to work a reasonable amount even if I do need a lot of rest.

It's very easy to forget how much I've improved over the last month because I'm still so limited. Need to keep reminding myself where I've come from.

Hopefully from now on it will be an upward trend. I don't have any hard commitments that feel unmanageable at my current state till next January. I'm still going to over do it from time to time because it's basically impossible not to. But as long as I'm careful and back off when I've over done it I can hopefully get back to normal.
