It hasn’t been a good… I don’t know how long. However long it has been, it hasn’t been good. Let’s just say a long time.
The last few days have been especially marred with frustration. But tonight, tonight was yoga. The time where all my problems melt away and I’m reborn anew, fresh-faced, ready to take on the world. In theory, at least.
I got my ass handed to me tonight. My shoulder is quite uncomfortable. I got too dehydrated, which gave me a bout of the chills with a side of nausea. All the new stuff we were supposed to do? Couldn’t do it. It was difficult not to feel the frustration creep back in around the edges. I knew I was in trouble midway through as I started to suck air while watching the sweat literally pour off my head in streams.
This happens in the summer. The first few hot days take me awhile to adjust, and even when I do, it isn’t good. Summer was my off-season when I was a runner; I just don’t do well in the heat. Conversely, I ran injury and pain free in the winter (up to 5 – 10 degrees above zero). Quincy is the same way right now also; both of us go outside and the panting starts immediately.
However, with the frustration on top of it all… it just makes it worse. Everything is more stressful than it should be. Plus, the one thing that de-stresses me more than anything actually caused a bit of stress tonight as I sat on my ass sucking air and water, watching everyone else do headstands.
