I’m going to start with a puppy as after this point I will basically moan. Here’s puppy
Well shit that was difficult. I woke up very sore and very stiff after yesterday’s crossfit. The idea of moving at all was not really exciting.
Anyway I brushed teeth and staggered straight onto my mat. It was just standing Asanas up to Parsvottonasana followed by any seated postures I felt I needed to move at all today.
I worked out that I did 80 burpees in total yesterday and around the same in Kettlebell swings plus five 5 mins of wall balls so um ow.
All the burpees meant that my wrist which is healing is rather more sore than its been for a while
Surya Namaskar A & B went forward bend ow ow ow. Step back as cat on the mat. Lie down rather than Chaturanga as wrist hurting. Budjapindasana (actually ok) down dog. Then stepping back over the cat (now in a different place, each time in a different place but always somewhere).
This cat. As soon as a mat is rolled out she’s on it.
Padangusthasana – pretty ok
Pada Hastasana – little stiff but alright
Trikonasana – little slanted when holding toe
Parivritta Trikonasana – only finger tips on the ground rather than hand
Utthita Parsvakonasana – pretty ok
Parivritta Parsvakonasana – back heel off the ground (naughty heel)
Parsvottonasana – forward bend kinda shitty, hands just together
Then a few seated Asanas, my marichis are totally gone, what once was an easy bind now is fingers not even in the same postal code. My back is stronger but stiffer.
Baddha konasana – literally nothing happening after all yesterdays wall balls.
Still it showed me I need to put a lot more effort into yoga as I’m getting stronger but that strength is eating into flexibility.
