Despite trapping a nerve this morning during my exercises, I feel good. Halfway through the exercises I had a feeling it might happen, so I warned myself to take care. Unfortunately, I did too much and right at the end I felt it go. It’s not the worst pain and it’ll be gone in a day or two. The important thing is that I noticed the danger. I just wasn’t quite careful enough.
I am reminded of Karaj’s comments to himself as we turned the last corner at the end of a very long drive from Edinburgh. He told himself to be careful and not to get too excited or do something silly now that he was nearly home. That made a strong impression on me. I have a tendency to get too excited and hurt myself. Like I did this morning.
