Yesterday, I got to talking with my neighbor who is into working out. She likes to run and lift weights on alternating days.
The conversation got around to me asking, “So, how do you know when you’ve pushed yourself too far?”
“Well, there are three things I consider warning signs,” she answered. “A pain that shouldn’t be there, labored breathing and light-headedness.”
“That’s good to know,” I returned.
After she left, I was sitting on my front porch watching the world pass by when it occurred to me, “Her warning signs describe me right after I put my tennis shoes on.”
