It seems that getting over jetlag isn't my thing, at least that is what it looks like after my total failure trying to run yesterday. I have some theories about why I am so affected right now.
I remember when I went to study in Canada seven years ago, that I was sick for two weeks at arrival, and had a huge problem getting over my jetlag. This is happening again, and I think there are several reasons why.
My sleeping rhythm has improved greatly the last year, and developed from a very irregular and sporadic schedule to a more structured one where I get a lot more sleep. I think one of the setback of this regular sleep cycle is that can be harder to disrupt, leading to a more sever reaction.
It's grass pollen season. Although I usually can survive the season without too many problems, the high season has an abnormally high concentration per cubic meter now and my normal antihistamines aren't doing their job.
I worked out monday morning. This was probably a big mistake, as it may have resulted in me being sick the day after. The training itself wasn't that hard, but the ramifications were. I still can't walk properly because of extreme soreness.
Hopefully I can learn from this experience, and handle jetlag better in the future, because I don't intend to stop traveling just because of it.
