Going to the gym tonight, I felt pretty good. Surprisingly, I had some decent energy levels, even though I worked a 6-4:30. I rode the bike for 40 minutes and then went to the back of our empty gym for some easy, Friday yoga. We’ve been in excessive heat warnings the past few days and today was over 100 degrees, so I wasn’t too surprised no one was at the gym. I’m pretty much over my cold, but still dealing with the aftermath of being sick — my shoulders and neck are still recovering from being all squished up the past few days, lying on the couch doing nothing. Because of that, I’ve felt the not-so-fun, but kind of common feeling of dizziness that I usually get when my neck or shoulder muscles are especially tight. At least I didn’t have a headache, but my balance was a little funky.
30 Day Yoga Challenge: Day Twenty-Three
I don’t know if it was the issues that I mentioned above or the fact that I was incredibly distracted or that I was trying to do yoga in sneakers, but I could not stand up without losing my balance during my ten minute yoga session tonight. I fell out of my crescent lunge, even in my favorite warrior sequence, I would wobble back and forth. Another issue miiight be because I was in front of a big mirror and kept checking it to see my posture. I was not as focused as I should have been!
- I’m on the home stretch of this challenge! Only a week left. I admit, this week with getting sick, my motivation is slipping. I’m going to push myself to try to do a long video this weekend. I don’t have any plans and it’s supposed to be hot still, so I’m gonna do my best to stay inside.
- No headache today! No ibuprofin, either…
Namaste and see you tomorrow!
