Listening to my body today
Monday, September 30, 2013
After an extremely active weekend, I am pretty sore in the lower back and have a twinge of sciatic pain running down my leg. I could power through this and walk with my friends this morning, but I've learned to listen to my body and pay attention to the signals it sends me.
Today, it's telling me to take it easy and think about working out tomorrow. I don't want that twinge to become a full-blown pain and some times in the past, this is what has happened when I push too hard through pain.
The good news is that I've built such a good exercise habit, that I'm not at all afraid to not going back to my workout routine when my body tells me it's OK. Yay me!
