Juicy Oasis Day 1

Posted: 2014-09-19

Today was an earlyish start - 5am alarm for a 7:30 flight from Stanstead to Lisbon (we went down the night before)

We arrived at Juicy Oasis at around 1:30 local time and were immediately blown away. It is top draw to say the least, boasting facilities that would rival any 5* hotel - minus the a bar and restaurant of course!

We both started to cut out solid food 2 days before we arrived - mainly because I (Neil) didn't want to experience some sort of scene from Trainspotting whereby I was curled up on a couch sweating, crying and hallucinating of steak and a glass of red.

After unpacking we went straight to the gym and did a superset strength workout 7 sets of 3 reps on 2 exercises and 5 sets of 5 on 2 others. Under these conditions I didn't think it wise to embark on lots of volume.

As the day went on we tried the pool, sauna, solarium and read lots! Things were going surprisingly well until about 7pm when extreme hunger and fatigue hit me. I couldn't help but dream of high calorie food - particularly pizza! I managed to hang on til 8pm for the final juice of the day and as I sit here and write this i feel far better than i did 1 hr ago.

Off to watch a film now in the cinema room. Hope to upload some photos tomorrow on FaceBook.
