Day 108 – Old Drinking Buddy

Standing Bow Pulling Pose or Dandayamana-Dhanurasana 8/10/10

I was stretching before class this morning, now that the 6:20s and 6:30s are getting popular in the morning (a trend I hope that doesn’t continue) I try to get there earlier, so I had an unusual 5 minutes to spare this morning, so I was stretching and looked up and saw an old drinking buddy from high school.  It made my day.

I actually just saw him on the Plaza the week before having lunch with his fiancee – who I didn’t much care for and he acted weird towards me.  But today he was just as he always was – and was not with her, which makes me think that she is the source of the weirdness he had towards me.  What a shame when you are marrying someone and they end up changing you.  I’ve seen it happened to a couple of high school buddies.

Usually seeing someone from high school makes me self-conscious and feel inferior – this is something I do to myself because of my current physical appearance – as I think I look like a chubster – especially since high school days – but with him, I wasn’t bothered.  Maybe because I have always thought of him as a happy and non-judgemental person.

I was sore and tired in class today and didn’t perform to the best of my abilities.  My right hamstring is exceptionally tight, so much so that I find that I cannot touch my forehead to the floor in Standing Separate Leg Stretching Pose as I did on Monday and Tuesday!  Ridiculous!

Today’s pose is Standing Bow Pulling Pose or Dandayamana-Dhanurasana.  I am getting better at this one, but I am far behind on my right side compared to my left side.  I don’t know what it is about my right side, but I cannot seem to maintain balance and get my hips leveled.  BOO!

Namaste.
