Sucky #ashtanga #yoga practice

I should really know by now that vinyasa without any significant warmup before isn’t a good idea at all, if I want to enjoy myself. This took almost 2 hours. I should add at least a 10-min jumprope only HIIT warmup before if I do this again anytime soon.

I thought it might be ok today because 1) I started practice at like 2pm and 2) it’s also warmer inside than it has been. Nope! An active stroll, with some terrain variation, is usually 120-135 with me. My average during today’s yoga was 101, lol. That means most of it was an active rest.
