I joked about having to cut my run short because I was signed up to take theMAN’s yoga class that afternoon. Exaggerating a bit, I described being held in yoga poses for torturously long periods of time. While it is true that theMAN has an affinity for the various warrior poses, many of the other yoga instructors also seem to be stringing the various warrior sequences into the flow — one after another after another.
Truth be told, my body was speaking to me. It was pointing out my irregular running pattern and I, being acutely aware of my current body’s limitation, was merely coming up with an excuse not to overdo it. I didn’t just want to run; I also wanted to roll out my mat with the intention of finding balance between the soft, soothing stretches and twists, to the fierce strength of the warrior sequences.
