As much as it’s difficult to admit on occasions, fatigue does creep up on me, it’s par for the course with cerebral palsy, though I only really discovered the reasons why much later in my 20’s.
Sometimes struggling through gym sessions or longer days, I do tend notice it towards the end of the day, be that through bigger limps or general fatigue. It was only recently I discovered it was in part due to the condition of having to expend more energy because of this. That being said, much like a large proportion of my life, it was a case of doing a bit more to bring myself up to a certain level without knowing it.
It just helps now to know this & gain a better understanding later in life, how manage it better and take the rest to gain more.
Scheduling times knowing what is ahead of me really aids the amount of energy likely to be required & once again make sure I have suitable nutrition to work alongside it.
It hasn’t fundamentally changed me but it’s the knowledge and working how to adapt that allows this to be planned for much better & ultimately a better quality of day.
This is particularly important when fitting in my training at the gym & getting the best from those sessions.
Today is my rest day…tomorrow we go again!
