Usually, when I work through my mental "limitations," I can keep going much longer physically than I had thought before.
I've been finding this to be very true. My mind tells me its time to sit down before my knee tells me its time to sit down. So I've been telling my mind, just one more technique, then if the knee hurts, its time to sit down for real. And most classes I end up not having to sit down.
However....yes, the body messages should be taken very seriously in order to avoid injury.
