Day 112 – Smelly Sports Bra

Yuck all I smelled today was my smelly sports bra. This bra is an Under Armour bra – just like all the ones I use but it fell behind my washer about 3 months ago and I just got it out a few days ago. When I first dragged it out it wreaked (sp?) like a dishtowel that had been left sopping wet to dry. So I flung it in the washer.

When it came out of the washer I put it on my drying rack (I tend not to put lyrca type materials in the dryer) and then smell tested it when it was dry.

Still smelled bad so I washed it again. Did the same routine and then this morning in yoga realized I must not have smell tested it a third time before putting it in my drawer.

So I’m sitting in yoga wondering who around me smells so bad until I realize it’s myself!

That sucker is now in a bucket of steaming hot water, with oxi-clean (love love love oxi-clean for removing stains and what not), then itmohe washed and then dried in a dryer. Does anyone have any other recommendations?

Today’s Bikram yoga pose is Standing Separate Leg Head to Knee Pose or Dandayamana-Bibhaktapada-Janushirasana. A posture I still struggle in, especially on my right leg where my hamstring is still very tight. It’s not pretty friends but I’m getting there.

Rabbit in particular really sucked this morning. When you combine no yoga for 3 days plus early morning, I tend to have an ugly rabbit.

Oh!  I had planned on going to two classes last Friday but I woke up not feeling well and in an effort not to push my adrenals, I took it slow and didn’t go. I ended up not getting any worse which made it worth it.

Namaste.

Day 83 – Energy Needed

I pulled into the parking lot this morning with 5 minutes to spare and there were too many cars for my liking.  I think this daylight savings thing is getting people up sooner.  Bummer!  I love the small morning classes (although I am sure the studio owner isn’t keen on them), so in some ways I am ready for the fall so that there won’t be as many people in class.  But I am enjoying the summer and it is nice to finish yoga and walk outside without having to put a jacket on.  I am not a big fan of being soaking wet and then putting on a jacket.  Gross.

Today’s pose is Dandayamana-Bibhaktapada-Janushirasana or Standing Separate Leg Head to Knee Pose.  This one is still rough on the hamstring for some reason and I can tell I haven’t been to a 90 minute class for awhile because I was tired by the time this one came around.   Standing Separate Leg Head to Knee Pose is one of those poses where you can try your damnest, or  you can take it easy and catch your breath.  That’s what I did today in this pose.  Shoot me.

I’ve been checking out my e-mail subscriptions for this blog and noticed that it changes dramatically, so I am curious to know if there are poeple that subscribe and unsubscribe only to re-subscribe.  How come?  Is it because I don’t post frequently enough?

Hopefully I will have better energy tomorrow.  I also find when I am slightly dehydrated that I get a headache in the 90 minute classes.  This headache tends to last as a dull pain the rest of the day.  I have it now as I type.  Don’t be jealous.  Namaste.
