Today was 11:30 am with Roberta. I didn't get enough sleep last night, and had a bit too much wine. Not great conditions to start off with. However, I did eat a small breakfast at 9 and drank a liter of water between 9 and 11 to prepare. Soften the blow of a painful class I was hoping. Roberta worked us pretty hard and even called me out on the carpet. Like a small child, my mind was wandering a little bit when we started triangle and I turned my foot before I was supposed to. Roberta said "michelle, don't turn your foot until I tell you. You're not driving the bus I am" which elicited some chuckles from my classmates and a sheepish smile from me as I swung my foot back around, only to have her then tell us to turn it. After that I really made an effort to just breathe and stay present. I felt pretty good until the end of class. The last three postures were just suffering as I was wiped out and it was hot hot hot. After class I was aware of some soreness in my shoulders. Must have worked extra hard for Roberta!
