Is it important to take it easy even on good days? How can I learn to pace myself?
It is always important to remember that you may not feel the effects of today’s activity until several days later. It is very important to pace yourself and you can learn to do this by listening to your body. It takes time to discover how much is too much. Always be reasonable about what you can do!
“Pacing yourself is hard… allow yourself time to rest after activity… listen to your body.” –Kendra Speigel
