I have seen the look of disbelief on the face of whoever I'm running my mouth at. Ya, I get it. Today I was looking at myself in the mirror, faced contorted in agony due to extreme pain in my left knee thinking "holy shit, are you kidding me Michelle?". I could not lock that knee for periods longer than 20 seconds which of course affected the standing one legged balancing series. It also brought tears to my eyes just to bend it and get it in my hand for standing bow. By the time I got to floor bow, I was crying a little bit. Breath coming out in jagged gasps, tears stinging my eyes. It was bad. Probably the worst pain in a yoga class ever. I just kept thinking back to my challenge last year where I worked through pain in my right knee. That pain is now a faded memory, but I'm quite sure it hurt at least almost as bad and I remember pushing through, continuing my challenge and breaking out to the other side, healed and stronger.
So tomorrow I'll go back. Because how can I walk around saying those things if I won't believe them and listen to them myself?
