But, once I was on my mat, things started to turn around. The class was really great tonight. And, because I hadn’t exercised before class, I had a lot more energy than I normally do. Tonight was the first class where I actually did, and held, all the down dogs that the instructor called for. Well, with one big exception. When everyone else was doing a full sun salutation, I did the half series. Other than that, I was able to keep up really well tonight. So, I ended the day really proud of myself and feeling like I got a great workout in.
On the way home, I was reflecting on how things didn’t go how I planned, but still managed to work out well. I think I’m going to not worry so much about getting exactly two hours in every day, but focus on making sure that I get in a great workout every day. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to let go of my stubborn streak enough to actually do it, but I am going to give it a try.
