Oof – way to jump back in after a rest day, eh? Let’s get right back into it with Sweat!
I was able to get through the whole workout in one sitting today (though of course there was no “sitting” involved!); the last time I did Sweat, I had to stop when there were about ten minutes left because my legs and back were so fatigued that I worried that if I continued, my core would go to shit and I’d throw out my back.
Better safe than face down on the ground!
Today, I started out kind of rocky; I woke up feeling dried out and sort of…hungover. I didn’t drink last night, but I might have made this and eaten enough that my teeth hurt from all the sugar. Definitely enough to wipe my energy this morning.
I accepted the fact that this was going to be tougher because of my choice last night, and I moved on. After all, what good does it do to continue to punish yourself? No good at all, that’s what.
Onward and upward.
By the halfway point, I was well into the groove. And YoDo (Yoga + her nickname, “DoDo”) was there to help me along the way, even more than usual – checking in and rolling around and scooting closer right when I needed it. I swear I’m not a crazy cat lady. I swear.
Today, I was not only able to lift my leg off the ground in down dog splits, but I was able to pulse it a bit, too. And though Warrior 3/three-point balance still feels like someone is sticking my ass with a hot poker (but, you know, in a good way), it’s getting a little easier each time.
