That’s what I keep telling myself as I roll up my mat after little over (or under) 30 minutes of practice. In the past, I would have constituted what I just did as a warm up to begin my practice. Today, it *is* all I can think of to do without breaking my promise to avoid forward folding, tailbone tucking movements for a week. You’d be surprised what all that entails. Child’s Pose, Downward Dog… Even sleeping has had to be modified as I normally curl up on my side.
I want to do more but I don’t really know where to go, or what to do, next. When you really take a look at it, my normal routine is rich in deep forward folds. What’s a girl to do? Even the poses that I started to move into had some component of hip flexion involved. I tiny tug at my spine told me that I was entering into hostile territory. I try not to ask when and just abandon the effort and move on. But I want to know…
When will I be able to move like I used to? To run, hike, down-dog it, and so on.
I keep telling myself that the little bit I am doing does amount to something. Something, that is, besides extra pounds on the scale.
it will come back, Juls.
Hang in there buddy. Your mind is in it and your body will follow.
