The working week is over at last. The train taking me to practice was on time, but I was a little worried practice would be cancelled, as when I left there were just 2 of us booked on, but thankfully at the appointed hour it had risen to 5 of us, 3 of usual suspects and a couple of others. Before we began we ended up having an impromptu “Snap,Crackle & Pop” contest after I took off my Medic Alert and cracked the bones in my wrist, T found she could not only crack her wrist but also her ankles, after which my knees and other bits of peoples anatomy joined in the party! As Easter turned around to see what was going on a cacophony of “It was him, it was her” broke out!
My energy was a little lacking tonight, normally the standing poses fly past, but after we had done them my mind (those voices are back) was asking “Is that all we done, how much more to go?”, I felt heavy and tired. Seated were better and we also added the jumping back from Triang Mukha and Mari A. My knee despite cracking was not playing, it struggled through Janu A & B and then Mari A-C, but I was very mindful of it. I did touch my fingers in Supta Kurmasana, little things make me happy! :-)
Closing were ok, in Urdva Dhanurasana my feet kept splaying out, I just cant stop them. I am realising that I am just too knackered to do Urdva Dhanurasana by the time we get to it after all those vinyasas. Salamba Sarvangasana was unbalanced and wobbly. So not a brilliant practice, but I am glad I went, even though I am now tired and aching. But tomorrow Cristina’s sharp fingers will loosen my back, neck and shoulders and I will be ready to do it all again.
