I walked through a cold downpour on Friday. It affected me very strongly- Just about every muscle in my body had a knot in it. Half of these muscles still do.
It was too windy for an umbrella. I learned a hard but valuable lesson: my body can no longer handle my former Joe Cool approach to Buffalo in the Fall and Winter- how little can I wear. I will have layers for this coming season, punctuated with a parka.
So I spent my whole weekend recovering from my week. I did so little I was getting upset at myself. The issue is what I did was proper. Recovering from the week is what my weekend has become over the last year plus.
Now it is not a choice. It is how I prepare for the week. Thankfully my wife is a saint.
