I have a headache all day long today. Not a very nasty one but still enough of an excuse to skip my practice. Doing pull-ups, writing a report on the workout, drawing Pinky and Spiky comic strips, playing organ etc.
All these activities require a comfortable state of mind and body. My mind is OK but the physical pain might seem like an easy way out today.
Luckily, I’m committed enough to create every day and document my days in texts and pictures so I should also do those pull-ups, right?
I was surprised my workout went smoothly this morning. And I was able to increase the workload: 3 reps of 2 pull-ups and 4 reps of 1 pull-up.
I even ate 2 juicy apples in between the sets!
I’d like to try the maximum number of pull-ups tomorrow. Hopefully it will be more than 2…
I just know these days will come and go. Pain or without pain, my physical and creative challenges will need to be completed, at least at a healthy minimum level.
Oh, and I had worked on trimming the hedge for a few hours before and after lunch. Doing some physical activity in the open air actually helped reduce the pain.
How do you deal with a mild physical pain? Does it affect your creative and physical activities? Or do you push it away, kind of ignore it until it passes away?
