Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. I’m not very well. I hardly slept in the night as I battled waves of fever: hot and sweaty then cold and shivery. My head starting hurting and the pain in my legs grew. I first thought it was food poisoning but as my mind ticked over slowly I grew to realise I have subjected myself to heat stress. Yesterday was too far and too hot with too much fluid loss. I also got burned by the sun. I may as well mention the blisters on both my big toes and the painful sweat rash that has developed in my groin. I feel like shit. This was not the way things were meant to go.
