Pedialyte is disgusting. Drinking it makes me feel nauseated. Something about it just hits my tummy wrong, so I’m going to cut it out and try Emergen-C instead. Blech.
Took the 4:30 w/ Joanne. She’s so awesome and energetic. And while she had some dialog flubs today, I thought it was wonderful and human and hilarious. I wish there were more opportunities for group laughter during class. I often laugh at myself during class. More laughter!
In preparation for class today I had to take a hot bath. Everything is just so sore and stiff. Not as bad as yesterday morning, but still. The bath did seem to help and I had less pain during class than I expected. Still had feet cramps, though.
AND, my right knee opened up today! I’m lucky in that I have never had any knee problems (unlike a lot of people in class) and I never thought my knees were tight, but today (during Fixed Firm Pose) I felt my knee stretch a little. I am assuming it is not an injury or tear because it doesn’t and didn’t hurt at all. :-) Just… opening.
Kelly mentioned in one of the comments somewhere that my favorite poses would change over time. This is already happening. I am starting to enjoy the feeling of Pranayama breathing after almost a month of despising it. I am starting to appreciate Triangle Pose for all the opening I’m feeling in my back, despite having shunned it all this time. I used to enjoy the feeling of Balancing Stick Pose and now I just want to punch it in its face. Even Camel Pose is winning me over a little. Rabbit Pose can still kiss my ass. As can Standing Separate Leg Head to Knee Pose.
