The second time is never the charm

Today was Hatha with Bret.

Actually, it was two days ago, but I discovered just now that my iPhone blogging application someone did the equivalent of "the dog ate my homework" with that blog entry, so I am forced either to attempt to recreate the moment, or tell a different story. I could also opt to let it go, but I've got this little OCD commitment around journaling every single class. So here we are.

Mondays are turning out to be a very good day for a Bret class, and a very good day for Hatha. There are a few reasons for this. First, I find that my weekend schedule and class choices have been leading me to do three consecutive days of Vinyasa through the weekend. So, by Monday, I am really needing the break. The other reason is that there's something about the energy of a Monday, that transfer from the openness of the weekend back to the rigidity of a work schedule, makes me want to counterbalance that with Bret's free-spirited energy.

In spite of class being, for all intents and purposes, "easy" today, it ended up still being hard for me due to my own issues. The first issue related to a mishap that occurred Sunday, after class, which I forgot to mention. I managed to slip on the sweat-covered concrete floor outside the yoga studio, and crashed down so quickly that I was completely unable to break my fall. I landed pretty solidly on my hip and, as a result, was really feeling it in class today. The second issue, which was actually a bigger deal, was that my sinuses were so messed up during class that every forward fold triggered a pulsing pain in my head.

See? This is what happens when I forget what I was originally going to say. There's just a whole lot of complaining.

Actually, this is pretty much what I said in the first place.
