Forget about being fit this time. We all should focus to be healthy, physical and mentally. If we could write a “to do” list of the things we need to do to be physically healthy, this will be it:
1- Have an appropriate balanced nutrition.
2- Exercise at least three times a week. Go for a walk, run, swim. Do it for your cardiovascular condition.
3- Visit your doctors on a routine basis.
I want to emphasize in the third one, and is something I have not read/heard much on the fitness motivation pages I follow. Part of being healthy, which is the first step to be fit, is to go to your doctors and be on top of health. This example is very common:
You’re training one day and you are performing a movement and you feel something strange in X part (lower back, shoulder, elbow), but you ignore it and keep going. Next time you feel it again, you just keep ignoring it because you only feel it when you are training. Time passes, it gets more painful and now is interrupting your daily routine. You decide to go to the doctors and when results come in, the situation is hard, severe or its too late to fix that pain/ injury with therapy or medication and know the only option is to proceed to surgery procedures.
And we ask ourselves “why I didn’t checked that sooner?” “What could I have done to prevent this injury?” Does it makes sense for us to delay and ignore a pinch/ pain to continue training? The reason we started training is to be healthy and to get older in a healthy condition, not to get older and have a list of surgeries we have been through because we ignored them.
Injuries affect directly our training and sometimes our nutrition, we need to be on top of any pain we feel. At the end of the day we want to prevent, not to remediate.
Stay healthy. Stay focused.
