Reluctant to Rest
Saturday, December 23, 2017
Today I slept in. I normally get up at 4:45 and get moving, but today I slept until almost 7. I needed the rest.
It was time to listen to my body. I have a sore throat and a very short fuse. I guess I need the extra rest to stay healthy. It is a brave decision because I love the feeling that I get after a good workout. I'm a person of habit, and I sometimes need to break the cycle for my body's sake.
I must confess that when my body says things I don't want to hear, I turn a deaf ear until my body talks louder and louder through the pain. I am often reluctant to rest, but today is a different day!
Since the weather outside is frightful, I'm going to give myself a day of rest from the outside run. What about you? Do you have problems giving yourself a rest when you need it?
I can do this!
