going home

I reached Guksu Station, only 10 km from my destination, another 2 hours' walk, and decided to throw in the towel. I was tired and dizzy for much of the walk, a probable sign of incipient heatstroke. Despite loading up on fluids when I hit Yangsu Station, I still felt tired and dizzy. 

So with discretion being the better part of valor, I made the command decision to pack it in. And thus endeth Week 7 of the Newcastle Diet, with almost 39,000 steps and a caloric deficit of only 1342, according to MyFitnessPal. I'll update my previous entry with the new numbers once I'm back at my place. 

At least I won't be spending W50,000 on a motel room.

Some final pictures:


  1. "only 10K from my destination"

    Only? That's the difference between you and me.

    Amazing job today, despite cutting it "short." And yes, it is much better to be safe than sorry. You are still in recovery mode after all.

  2. I got dizzy early on, and I stayed dizzy. So I got worried about heatstroke.

  3. Wise choice. Save that 10km section for another day.
