Creating the new normal

Today was 75 minutes (75!) of Power Vinyasa with Gordy.

It was a good day. A really good day. I am not sure why it was so especially good. But I felt strong from start to finish, and found everything about the class to be enjoyable. I left the room feeling euphoric, and it lasted quite a long time after class ended.

It was an atypically typical class for Gordy. Usually, the sequences in his classes are very unconventional. Today, he said from the start that we would mostly follow the Baptiste flow. And it was really nice, and really well-taught. Again, I am not sure what makes one day feel so much stronger than another. I wouldn't say I was particularly well-prepared for today in terms of prehydration or nutrition or rest. It was just one of those good days.

I do know that I was in a good mood today. I wonder if that helps? Good mood, friendly faces, early arrival, peaceful, relaxing, sunny day. I guess maybe there were multiple convergent positive forces at work.

No matter what the reason, I will gladly take it.

  1. Wish I had been there! I have to be in the right mood to take a gordy class, ready for anything almost. I've actually never been to a class where he does a typical baptiste flow...
