Tranquilo Roberto

Sometimes in life, we have so much perseverance that we feel in a rush to try harder. But at times, we try too hard that we get injured. For example; training to run faster or farther. It is possible to finish a marathon without training (just ask my friend), but that leads to consequences after the race...and many lessons to be learned while you sit on the couch all day because your legs cannot physically move.

If this post had to have a keyword, the word would be proper. To try properly. Not too slow and not too fast. Stay Tranquilo (relax) while you move forward.

I learned my lesson last week, when I tried running up and down the stairs of a stadium and later in the week ended up with a minor case of shinsplints because I wasn't used to doing that. Bummer, because the only way to heal is to stay away from running for the time being.

You know when you are prohibited from doing something you like doing temporally, and it makes you want to do it more because you miss it so much? Sigh.
I say, if you are injured, try doing something else similarly to your hobby that will not harm you.

Like biking
 and taking random pictures of bike seats...
 While you are at it, you might run into a surprise. 
Like the most adorable cat you've ever seen!!

"Consider it joy, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance." -James 1:3
