Day 42

2 Mar

Yesterday’s class, and a cupcake last night, kicked my bad mood’s butt and I was ready for Day 42’s morning class.  As I was walking the 2 dark, deserted blocks to my car I was thinking about how impressed I am that I woke up at 5:30am. To workout. Alone. Who am I?  I had a new instructor (or new to me at least) and it was a nice change of pace.  He started the class by saying to take it easy, that our bodies were still asleep and pushing too hard that early in the morning isn’t a good idea.  Instead, we were instructed to work more on our form and technique- and I really tried to do this.  I even got noticeably higher on my toes during awkward pose than I ever have before.

I also wore shorts for the second day in a row this morning and I have to agree with the instructors: the class is harder wearing shorts (slippery legs!) but it’s also helpful being able to see my knee.  While wearing shorts, there’s no question about whether my knee is locked- they make the class harder in a good way.

Lesson learned: Working on form is not only a nice “break,” but it can also lead to better postures!

Day 42 was one of my worst classes to date.  I had a 10 1/2 hour work day and ate cottage cheese an hour before class.  It was am 8pm class with a new instructor and, knowing that I’d have a bad class, I placed myself in the back corner. and hid the best I could.  Surprisingly, I didn’t sit out any postures, but I did not try my hardest and I yawned throughout the entire class.  I was so tired throughout class that it almost felt like an out-of-body experience.

Nothing to note about class really. I am slightly satisfied with my ability to make it through class  but not so much with my performance.  Hopefully tomorrow is better :/
