Day 117 – Back in the Saddle

Locust Pose or Salabhasana

Locust Pose or Salabhasana 8/10/10

Yes, for those of you loyal followers I went to yoga this morning. Crazy but  true.

After class, Barb (today’s instructor) said, “Good class.” to me and I replied, “Yes, but I can tell I haven’t been for two weeks.”. To which she replied, “we all need to take a break sometimes for a number of reasons.”

I could tell I’d taken too long of a break but I’m looking forward to my next class as I think it’ll be better because of muscle memory stuff.

Ironically, today’s pose is  Locust Pose or Salabhasana which is appropriate because this was a pose I really struggled in today. I didn’t even try to get my legs up higher because I was afraid that being out of commission for so long would injure my back and back pain is the worst of all!

Now that it’s getting colder seems like the attendance is down again – yay! When I walked in this morning there was only one other person in class and by the time class ended there were about 7 people including me – just the way I like it.

Check out this video I found on YouTube of a guy doing the Locust Pose:

    Dear Jenny,
    Welcome back! We’ve missed you,, it’s true, sometimes you need to “step back” in order to get space, perspective, work out stuff”.. so well done! Glad to be able to have you in the inbox for inspiration..
    As for me, I’ve fallen a little off too, starting to also add a very short treadmill workout with my hubby at home. We’re both blown away that I can last 15- 20 minutes.. Thrilling!

      Thanks, Marjie! I appreciate it and am very sore tonight. I think I will skip tomorrow and resume on Wednesday. My boyfriend’s parents are in town this week and weekend, which means less sleep and more stress for me. Wish it wasn’t so as I need the workout the week before Thanksgiving! Congrats on the 15-20 on the treadmill!
