Hello Dear Readers,
I don’t get sick very often anymore, but when I do, it’s a nightmare. After suffering from a vicious sore throat last week, I took a couple of days off to rest and recuperate, and then came back to work. Bad idea. I was very ill throughout the long weekend, and am still sick this week. Today was my first day back at work, and my head was pounding through every hour. Ugh. I hate being sick.
Our health is so important, but often we don’t appreciate it until we’re ill. I’m really looking forward to feeling like myself again.
Am I this sick because of over-training? I don’t know, but I do know my body is telling me I need a rest. And, for a change, I’m listening to it. I’m going to ease back into my usual routine, beginning tomorrow, instead of plunging ahead full-throttle. I just hope this hasn’t set me back too far in terms of my muay thai training. I hope I haven’t lost too much strength.
I do think being sick can teach us a few things, if we allow it to. When your body forces you to rest, do you look forward to resuming your daily routine as soon as you’re able? Do you enjoy the idea of returning to work and the rest of your life?
If so, great. If not…it could be time to make some changes.
That’s all from the sickbed today, my friends. Stay well.
