… is this thing on???

It’s been so long since I’ve logged in here, that I actually forgot my password.  But seriously, folks, I finally made it to class.  It’s been three-and-a-half months since The Shit Show, and every week I would postpone going to class for one reason or another – most of it was simply fear of getting dizzy again.  It actually took a long time (at least 6 of those weeks) for the dizziness to fully go away.  And by then I was just out of the habit.

But I did it!  I wasn’t even sure I’d go until the last possible minute.  For those who regularly practice, this’ll be funny:  It’s been so long since I practiced that I thought Head To Knee came after Half Moon.  Boy was I dreaming…

So… class.  It wasn’t that bad!  I mean, I was sweating bullets like a newbie, and I’ve been super sore, but that’s about it.  My Half Moon backbend was surprisingly deep.  I got the balance right away on 2nd part of Awkward.  Eagle can still bite my ass.  Head to Knee was awful – I could hardly stand on one leg.  Standing Bow wasn’t too shabby… even saw my foot over my head for five seconds.  I sat out Triangle.  And the one after.  Rallied for two sets of Tree and then collapsed on the floor.  I did only one set of the floor series… I was BEAT.

My mental discipline is gone, too, because once I got on the floor, all sorts of personal things started flooding in.  Stupid thoughts.  I can’t wait to get back to the point where my brain shuts off and there’s only the posture.

I had hoped I’d go back for the Sunday 4pm class, but I slept in until (gasp!) 1pm on Sunday and couldn’t get myself motivated enough to go.  I just hobbled around my apartment for the rest of the night.

Fingers crossed for next week.  Missed you guys!  Need to go catch up on your blogs now.

  1. Ha, great minds must be thinking alike. I haven’t been to class since I think sometime back in June. I’ve also had all the same excuses as you probably LOL. I decided to bite the bullet and go back on 9/1 in honor of “the summer being over”. I took it really easy, but it made me realize how much I actually miss being in class. With all the craziness going on each day, there’s nothing like yoga to get me back to my happy place. I am going to try to get back to another class this week.
