– The adventures of a solo round the world cyclist –

Day 439 (Malaysia Day 6)

The biggest lesson I am learning at the moment is not to expect too much from myself. I’m not invincible. I have limits and I would be stupid to keep making myself sick by stretching them too often. Rather than endure a punishing ride all the way to Pekan, I pulled up stumps at Kuala Rompin. My headache is still raging and somehow I have strained my neck. It feels like I have suffered whiplash and I think this is what is now causing my head to hurt so much. The ride was fairly cruisy, although I had a terrifying moment when I had to ride through a troupe of snarling monkeys. One massive male started approaching me but luckily a car coming from ahead distracted him and I got away before coming to any harm.
