Did you read it? If not, you should…even if you are not a rushing woman. It might just be useful to those lovable ladies around you!
I have stopped drinking coffee (banging headache for a week), I am focusing on a very clean diet, I am doing lots of yoga and pilates to work on my breathing. I have some blood tests on the way. And I am being kind to myself. I have cried a bit, but that is good…it is extremely relieving. I am grateful to be here.
What are you doing to make a wonderful change to the real you?
In the past months have put my body through a lot of stress… without ever giving it the right amount of rest. There was always something to do, something to study (I’m still in high school), a training log to be filled in, somewhere new to explore…. rest could wait. Then it came down on me all together. Knee pain (probably tendinitis), aching quads, shin splints. I’ve always had some injuries, but managed to run through them. This time though I feel horrible. It’s three weeks since I last put my running shoes on… that only makes it worse. I’ve cried too, it helps getting it out sometimes 😉
I’ve picked up pilates… it’s helping me not only with breathing but also with improving my posture throughout the day.
I believe everything happens for a reason… but only we can decide how to cope with the difficulties life puts before us.
I’m trying to listen to my body too; you’ve really been an inspiration in that Frosty! I’ve been reading your blog and it’s really opened my eyes. You’re an amazing athlete, I hope I can grow up to be like you!
