18 Ramadhan 1436
Went to the gym this evening after breaking the fast, confidently assuming I would complete 30 minutes on the elliptical trainer, but could only manage just over 22. At that point I was dizzy and shaking and dangerously close to leaving the recently ingested contents of my stomach all over the floor. I couldn't even make it to 25 minutes.
You learn an awful lot about yourself when you're fasting and it all makes you very humble.
