This is the beginning of a journey, and I bit off more than I could chew. Are you still beginning 4 months in? How long did it take Louis and Clark to get to the Pacific? Dang it, I’m going to cry again.
As strong as I’ve gotten since March, I wasn’t prepared for today’s class, a hot class 96 degrees and far more advanced than I. I’ve always been strong, until I wasn’t. This is a very long journey back.
Needless to say, I was shaken, exhausted, and ready to barf at the end of the hour.
Crow? No….not yet. No Chataranga yet. No Ashtaranga yet. No, I’m not into my wheel yet. You want me to grab my big toe, and do a one arm one leg side plank?……Ok. I actually did that move, now I will just get into my child pose, and catch my breath. After 20 Vinyasa ( the rest portion of the class –which is plank, to up dog, to down dog in a fluid movement), planks held , 3 legged dogs to plank, runner’s pose, wild things, side planks, chair twists, tree on blocks, dancer’s pose on blocks, and whatever else turned me into a pile of weeping mush.
Tomorrow is another day, Scarlett. If I can move tomorrow, I will try again.
Yoga made me cry……yoga is not for sissies. Expletive here#%\\€£¥!!!
