Firstly, I completely underestimated Saturdays training, my body was aching on Sunday. I could feel the strain from the continuos punches and kicks which I will have to get use to, as I will be training six days a week.
Sunday is my off day, so no official training but I decided to just do some stretches, core exercise and hand stands. I have decided to incorporate my own daily stretches into the program as I can feel the immediate relief after completing stretching yesterday.
Apart from stretching my day was spent just getting my setup up and running. I had to go out and buy a new monitor because the screen of my Macbook Pro broke in Cambodia, making it impossible to work. Yes, I did get a quote to fix it but it costs $700, which does not make sense as I can repair it under warranty back home in South Africa.
I also had my “cheat day”, wolfing down a Big Mac and a Coke. I will afford myself such “luxuries” once a week but the rest of the time, no sodas and definitely no Mac Donalds.
I went for a Thai massage from a lady who really knew what she was doing, I often go for massages and more than not, I am super disappointed but not this time. The lady was clearly a professional. I explained to her the parts of my body which were in pain and she paid special attention to them.
Overall a good relaxed Sunday, I think I will come to cherish these more and more as the month progresses.
The above pic is roasted duck, pork wontons and noodles and this was 70 Baht, which is about $2. Below is also noodles but pork noodles with some vegetables in a super tasty broth and this was 40 Baht, which is around $1.15. I am still amazed at the quality of food you can get for the prices in Thailand. I just visited Cambodia and I struggled to find a decent meal for under $3.
