Exercise with Caution
No Pain - No Gain is a familiar term for all of us, and I tend to push myself into the Pain Zone. I want to feel the aftermath of a good workout.
This week, I might have pushed my body too hard as I've ended up with either a pulled or torn tendon in my leg. I hate being told to relax and put my feet up. It's like torture.. I could do so many other things.
A close friend told me that I exercise too much, and therefore I'm to blame for this condition. I get her point!
But, the fact is, I have not had any injuries, pain or other ailments, for years, while keeping up with my yoga routine. I love yoga, and the benefit that comes with it. Normally, I'll practice yoga 3 times per week but for the past 6 weeks, I barely got 3 yoga session in. My body was slowly loosing its flexibility and strength.
So, I truly believe this injury would not have happened had I kept up my yoga routine.
Now, I'll pay the consequence as I won't be exercising for a few weeks and that's punishment enough for me.
So, lesson learned.. Know what's good for you and stick to it!
I surely don't want to sit around all day....
