If you are a woman, you probably understand what I am talking about. That excruciating pain that hits once a month. That damn period pain. If you are a man, you have no idea how much suffering it is! Some women actually stay in bed. I don´t, although sometimes it really seems like a great idea. On the 1st day, however, I spend more time in bed, lying down, than usual. But life goes on. Work awaits. Training awaits. And so I simply go and at least try to do something. The battle is lost before it has even started. I always know that on such days, the workout does not have its usual quality. But I simply go with it. I am happy if I can do something. Even if that something might at first seem small and insignificant. Each step of the way counts. Each workout counts. I do listen to my body and take it easier but I don´t skip my workouts. If necessary, I swap them instead. This is how I cope. I try to go on with my life but in a bit quieter way.

Oh, I did write but it was only a blog post draft. Something, at least.

Running drills with the others. It was good to have them around, otherwise getting out of home would have been really hard. Pain, etc.
