Out of sync

Today was vinyasa with Chelle.

Whereas yesterday everything was flowing, today I found myself feeling oppositional. The class had a lot of "play time" in it, and experimentation, and it was not what I was looking for. And I guess I felt like I was being difficult by not wanting to participate, but I'm just trying to not have my heel hurt more than it does already, and playing feels risky right now, even if maybe it really isn't. To top it off (making excuses, I know) I'm really tired. So I'm just trying to do a solid, but conservative yoga practice. And some days are just not that.

I could tell that my balance was not good, and it was one of those "bad tree days." Those kinds of days tend to really make me impatient with myself. Today, at least, i didn't spiral into anger at myself. When I couldn't stay in tree, I just had to disappointedly acknowledge, "This is the best I've got today."
