So I’m back from holiday and completely exhausted! We did do sooo much walking, lots and lots of steps but i am baffled at just how exhausted I am. I was falling asleep in the car, had to have a doze before tea on Friday, i can’t concentrate or get anything right, this morning, I could barely speak I was so tired. We started off on Monday at Tintagel castle, anyone who has been there will know its no walk in the park, but there were people managing it with sticks, so I thought, well I should be fine, right? Now I don’t know if it was the perilous steps, but by the time we had finished, my legs were on fire and so painful I wanted to scream, I could also feel the muscles in my thighs kind of spasming (think thats the word) as I walked.Brief pauses to sit over the next few days and they seemed to be relatively back to normal, tho stiff and achy. Eden project on Wed was almost a killer, didn’t help that a staff member told us just how hot it was in there…could already feel it! I should have stayed outside ( saying that the meditteranian was alright, but the rainforest …), but I didn’t want to arouse suspicion, plus I guess I wanted to prove to myself I could survive it. For the hour or so we were in there, I was constantly dizzy,jelly legs,i kept drinking but it was hopeless, i don’t know how i made it.Jump ahead to friday and our last day, and my legs are no longer stiff but incredibly weak that im amazed i didn’t fall over,plus the tremors had come back and I could have slept for the rest of september! symptoms have really got to me this week has anyone else found their overall stamina has just dropped? i used to think that as long as i could eat enough(and thank goodness I could!) and get enough rest in between (this was harder) that I could still survive a hardcore holiday. I know I worried when I was exhausted from trips to town, but I’d hate to think I no longer have the stamina to go on a proper holiday.I could fall asleep right now to be honest.also, does anyone have any tips for fatigue/keeping stamina up without overdoing it? I’m likely to only be able to get a xmas temp job (yay for redundancy - not), so will need a plan to get through it!
hoping everyone else is well as can be!
