Ship’s Log–May 7th


Still coughing today, but I decided to ignore it and go for my run, especially since there is no fever accompanying it. It was interesting that the cough vanished while I was working, but returned in force literally moments after I stopped running.

I decided later to follow my successful run with a class at the dojo, and that was perhaps a mistake. I did not enjoy the class, and I left feeling discouraged and wondering why I even bother continuing with my training since lately I’ve had to force myself to go and rarely enjoy it. The Hub thinks it is only because I am training so hard and I’m tired by the time I hit those evening classes, but I think there’s also been a change in the atmosphere at the dojo, and I no longer feel like I’m part of the family there, and that’s a terrible feeling.
