I’d had my workout all planned for today. I was going to do Day 10 of the Christmas series I’ve been working my way through, but then I didn’t feel like jumping. Even though my Primary+ set list can be a bit tedious if I’m in the low end of my biorhythms, it’s still beneficial… Every time I finish I’m all, I should do that once a week, but it ends up being less frequent.
I considered switching to an hour long HIIT after the fundamentals, but after assessing I decided to press on. It wasn’t that anything was painful. I was just a bit stiff and my heart rate was relaxed.
One thing I did different from lately is that I didn’t move near a wall for the navasana handstand exit. Boom! No problem. I did my EPRK and three ticks. So ok if I’d done a workout-workout I’d have burned 700-800 in that amount of time, but I wouldn’t have gotten the tuning. I’ll do my Day 10 tomorrow.
I didn’t do any cardio warmup at all. I figured I’d maxed myself out enough yesterday with that Julia routine, during which I wore my vest almost the entire time. Today was pure yoga, after another (lengthy) session blogging. Charlie and I are going out for a late lunch (getting off The Hill!!!! at least as far as Hillsdale), but of course I’m lally-gagging.
My heart rate average is pretty good for an all yoga session!
I’ve been taking Sundays off normally, but in light of how hard I kicked my own ass yesterday, and the ongoing maintenance necessary to eradicate the neck tweak situation*, I decided to practice yoga & to just let it be what it is, which is not necessarily exercise. The means I didn’t do any cardio before at all.
I could do all my chakorasanas today! Very carefully but this is good. I still hadda put my hands on the floor for setu bandhasana but that’s fine.
*There’s a slight situation in the left glute too, and that’s been tighter on the outside for a little while.
Warmup: (10/30×10=6:40min) jump rope intervals I had to do forward, cautious neck rolls in the 10-second breaks cause I was really feeling my neck tweak. Just this little bit of a warm-up kept me humming all the way through my yoga practice though. Amazing!
Was very careful with the neck. Did two, very tight chakorasanas & then was like “Duh” and omitted the next two. I took a lot of extra time in the updogs., getting up on my big toe knuckles a lot in that under-rated pose. I also had to be very focused in sirsasana and put barely any weight onto the top of my head. Normally it doesn’t matter much. Anyway I feel all toned up, tuned in and much betterer.
