An hour and a half of yoga at our after-school staff session. I almost ducked out, when I realised that it was going to be a very select class, with only myself and two others in the group, as everyone else was over-committed with end-of-termness. However, I knew it would be good to stretch out after yesterday’s run, so I didn’t let myself run off home, tempting though it was.
It’s funny how much harder I found it to relax being in such a small group. I like being able to hide in the background, and that’s not too easy when there are only two others. The teacher is good at making us all feel we’re doing well though, so it was an enjoyable class, and I was so chilled in the final relaxation that I kept having to pull myself back from the fringes of sleep.
We learnt a different variation of the warrior pose that is apparently better for the knees than the one we’d done before, with knees kept straight instead of with a slight twist. The reasoning seemed good, but it was hard work on calves that had been running yesterday. I think I’ll need to practise it little and often to build them up a bit.
Now, I wonder whether I’ll go for a run tomorrow?
