I'm staying at a monastery (Thai forest tradition, here in New Zealand) for 5 months, and I'm following the 8 precepts, so I can't eat after midday. Yet the only time available for me to exercise (yoga or on the drowing machine) is after noon, around 4pm.
This means I exercise and then can't refuel afterwards. Actually, we are allowed fruit juice and chocolate, and a little cheese if we are feeling poorly.
I'm wondering if this is bad for my health, or perhaps good?
I remember from my college days that the coaches said we should always eat after a training session?
I'm just trying to maintain a basic level of fitness so that I'm not a complete pudding when I finish here after vassa finishes.
Thanks in advance for any advice, folks!
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.
