Day 9 – Worried

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

I’m wondering if I will get to the point where I run out of words to describe my yoga session, like the title, “Day 9 – Worried”.  Yesterday‘s was “crowded”. 

I made the huge mistake of checking my e-mail on my iPhone this morning before getting out of bed.  I always get up at 6am to get to these classes on time.  The Monday, Wednesday and Friday classes start at 6:20am, so I am usually running around like a crazy woman to get there on time, whereas the Tuesday and Thursday classes start at 6:30am.  So I have an additional 10 minutes in bed. 

I am really into Ragdoll cats.  I have two.  I just lost my 19-year old Ragdoll, Rags, in March 2009.  So I have a website about Ragdoll cats and I also particpate in a number of discussion boards.  Well, it so happens, that one of the people on the board mentioned how her cat has HCM and her cat is related to one of my cats (like 1/4 related), and another breeder mentioned how I should ask for gene testing and all this stuff.  Not only does it worry me to lose my cat, but also to have yet another problem to worry about.  I just got over Graves Disease and lost a lot of good people in my life last year to death, so I am ready to have a good year and don’t need something like that to slow me down.

So, unfortunately, as a result I had an icky feeling in my stomach the entirety of the yoga practice.  I was so wishing today was 60 minutes, but sure enough it was 90 minutes. 

Awkward Pose

Awkward Pose

I was a mess – unbalanced, annoyed, figidity, anxious.  It was not a good day for yoga, my friends.  Also, I am beginning to wonder if 5 times a week is too much.  Input please.  The reaosn being is that I seem to be tighter in my postures, rather than more limber.  I look forward to Monday to see if the two days of rest will yield results.  Of course, though, tomorrow is Friday, so I will need to get through that first!

Today’s photo is of the Awkward Pose.  And boy oh boy, do I look awkward!!  I did something to my left knee over Thanksgiving break, and it hasn’t completely healed, so I am not able to get as deep into the pose, as I would like.  You should see major invancement in this pose in the coming months.  At least I hope so.  Hasta mañana.
