I believe taking care of myself is my biggest problem. I never let any of my injuries have enough time to heal. Instead of running half a mile for a work out after my neck strain healed a bit(2 1/2 weeks) I decided to run a mile and a half and guess what, the muscle started to hurt again. The smart back part of my brain says rest but the contradicting part in front says "ooohhh look bicycle, lets go on a 20 mile ride to the beach!". Hopefully this stage of my life will pass , but if my history has any effect on me, then I will never do light activities such as chess for full on enjoyment.
