great. it’s all in my head

Just got back from rollerblading —first time in a loooong time. And, via dangerousmeta , I see this New Scientist article: “Fatigue is in the mind, not the muscles, suggests a new study.” Lovely. So I shouldn’t have taken it so easy and shoulda gone ahead and done another lap? Maybe not. “But evidence is mounting that our brains make us feel weary after exercise. The idea is that the brain steps in to prevent muscle damage.” Seeing as how this was the first blade in a long time, it makes sense to me.
