I also just want to take a moment to say thank you for all of the encouraging comments, especially the three on yesterday's post. The Bikram yoga community rocks!

Day 73: A day off, it does the body good
My decision to take yesterday off was smart. Today was 430 with Darla. I discussed my knee issue with her before class, just in case. I really didn't know what was going to happen. I even went to second row, in case I needed to take care of myself and take a knee. I took it easy, being mindful, breathing, trying to just flow and not push. I felt fine. The knee is still sore and I had to work around it a little, but doing yoga today helped it not hurt it. Having yesterday off made all the difference. I went from tears two days ago, face contorted in agony, to just having to baby it a little bit today. Phew. Let's hope, going forward, that it will just keep getting stronger and better and not backslide. I will continue to be mindful and listen to my body. God it felt good to be back in that room today. I missed it.
