Astanga

I’m back! Had a rest day, yesterday, just because I’d slept like crap the night before (return of dental pain & back on the antibiotics, unfortunately) and didn’t want to bother. I feel like my joints are fragile and sensitive now.

I’m not going to make it to three Astanga sessions this week, as per last Sunday’s hopeful musing, but two might be possible.

Warm-up: 10/30×6=4min jump rope. Wasn’t even sure if this would be possible, and even with yesterday’s rest day, just this short bit of intervals felt excruciating. Not at all pleasant. But I was able to get through it, gingerly, w/out any joints freaking out.
