Whist all this makes sense on many levels, it will come as no surprise to those people that I have decided not to take that advice. It's true that my brain mostly agrees and my body will most certainly benefit from more rest. HOWEVER, a small part of brain is telling me to just go and see what happens! This is the part of my brain that often gets me in to trouble! This is the part of my brain that generally must be obeyed!
