Day 14: Does this even count?
Today was 11am up at Dray's with Sharon. Sharon has been teaching for quite awhile and has this fabulous energy about her. In addition, she is a veritable fountain of knowledge with these postures. Great advice peppered in with her dialog. Today I was unable to really take advantage of this knowledge. The room felt pretty humid and I was raining by awkward. My body felt tight and restricted, as it often does during a morning class. I was totally worn out by the time the standing series was over. I hit the floor and got sharp pains under my ribs. I also felt like I was going to toss my cookies. By the time camel came around I barely had enough energy to lift an arm, much less execute a situp and then setup for camel. I ended up sitting out one camel, one rabbit and both separate leg stretchings. I would attempt to get up and do the posture, only to turn around and lay back down on my mat, forehead crinkled up in exasperation. It was one of those days where the only positive spin I could put on it was "hey, at least I stayed in the room".
