You all know what do the doctors do in the emergency room when one’s heart has stopped, right? They use the defibrillators to send some electrical shock signals to some sort of “re-starting” the heart.
When the ‘heart’ of my legs stopped for three weeks, it has gone into a serious state that my endurance and stamina dropped so drastically since I didn’t even do any maintenance fitness activities during the days where I got stuck in the office up till almost midnight. I almost call my insurance company for a review, in case anything bad happens to me due to this effect. Not wanting for it to get any worse, this whole week I went to the ‘emergency room’ to get myself defibrillated (I’m not sure if there’s such a word). I need a drastic ‘re-start’ shock.
Monday, I got a very small dose of a 30 minutes cycling session on trainer. Just to test the water. Takut terlebih bagi shock kang terus kojol on the spot tak sempat mengucap.
Tuesday, managed to increase the defibrillation factor with an hour of run at the garden, followed by a 50 minutes swim session. System was showing a good sign of being re-energized.
Wednesday, I got myself the biggest voltage shock! Started with a 1.2km swim, 6km run and a 30km cycling sessions. A big plate of nasi goreng kampung with telur mata goyang served as a perfect bonus to end the day.
Thursday, I was planning for another hour of run to which shall be followed by another hour of swim session. However, the thunder-stomerly-weather in the evening forced me to swap the plan with a 1.5 hours cycling session on the trainer at home. My new phylosophy for the day was, "better than nothing, and much better than staying in the office".
So now, I’m out of the emergency room. Next, I can’t wait for Ironman 2 the movie to hit the big screen. Seeing the ads on TV last night when it shows the screening date will be on April 30, I can use the remaining of my annual leave I guess. No harm, right?
