and Wednesdays, and Fridays… and whenever else I can justify going. 🙂
I was determined to prove to myself that my unusual soreness was not from Power Yoga last Thursday, but instead just a fluke.
What soreness? How does yoga possibly make you sore?! My sides, obliques, my CORE.. were all sore. I had no idea the day of, but the next day, and the next day.. sore. And again today. I went again yesterday afternoon, to what was an even more challenging class than the Thursday one, and it was AMAZING. It was really hard and I left drenched.. soaking wet and totally red in the face.
Now.. while I’m in there, I can’t tell you that I’m truly enjoying what I’m doing. In fact, I wish there was a clock so I could see how much longer I had to endure the difficult shit we do in there, but, there isn’t, and it would be totally obvious if I had one with me, cause I’d be checking it constantly. BUT.. when we are done, it is the finest moment. Kind of like finishing Murph, or Kelsu, or Holleyman, or any of the crazy Hero WODs. My heart is pounding, I’m soaked in my own sweat, and I’m laying on a floor in a hot room. Except I was doing freaking YOGA.
I am signing up for my $30 for 30 on Wednesday, which is the next day that I have scheduled to go back. Yes, I’ve scheduled it. I told Dave tonight that I was going to put my workouts into a calendar, because I’d be more apt to go if I had them scheduled. So… the rest of my week is scheduled with my workouts, tomorrow Crossfit, and then each day alternates. So tomorrow is CF, Wed is PY, Thurs is CF, Fri is PY, etc.. (PY=Power Yoga.. tired of typing it out, and it sounds snotty when I say Power Yoga, I think…)
Maybe I should just be ULTRA snotty and call it Vinyasa, which apparently is its technical name, or even worse, Power Vinyasa. There we go. I have Power Vinyasa scheduled Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Bitches.
I’m really hoping this whole core soreness persists, because damn it, this is what I’ve been missing out on with CF. My legs are strong, my back is strong, my arms, neck, calves.. but my core always feels neglected. I’m always able to compensate with my back muscles instead, well.. not with Power Vinyasa! Hah.. PY, sorry.
Anyway, I’m excited. I’m excited to get a schedule going again. I’m happy to start seeing results again. 🙂 Crazy that I’ve done so much CF that I stopped seeing results, and since I’ve scaled back on the quantity of days that I go, improvement and progress are slower to see. I’m thinking this will be an amazing mix.
