My Yang is out of balance
"The brain needs twice as much nourishment as the body", or so the saying goes. Clearly, I have been neglecting my body. I've been favoring Yin over Yang.
I restarted my morning workouts today and found that my cardio endurance was down to 50% and the maximum weight I can lift dropped by 10%. Of course, this is my first workout in three weeks, and still with a sleep deficit, so that drop is close to normal. It'll probably take a week or two for me to get back to where I was a month ago.
It won't help my mind's concentration if my body isn't in its best shape. That means I'll need to ensure that my fitness routine isn't compromised by my Go studies. I know that I perform better and am in an uplifted mood after my workouts. Coincidentally, Men's Health magazine ran an article on page 176 about the importance of cardio workouts to mental acuity.
