When I get gimpy I’m like, “Okaaaaaaayyyyy…”
I really wanted to do Michele’s newest WO today, but my body has spoken. I’m so sore lately and I know a large part of the reason is I haven’t been good about getting any regular Astanga practices in there. As regular as I get! By that I mean addressing all the parts: Suryas & fundamentals, whatever series poses I’m doing, the back bending & finishing sections. When I get gimpy verging into tweaky then I know it’s time to knuckle under and just do it. However bad and tedious things might be from neglect, the process will tune things up & improve them.
Didn’t get to this until 2pm because Charlie and I went on a home improvement, planning quest and then stopped at the bakery after.
