i’m training. that’s really all to report. training, training, training. there’s a certain relief (and release) that comes in the back of your brain when you figure out that, you don’t know how, you don’t know why, but whatever you’re doing is working. all you need to do is to keep showing up and it will all work out ok. ‘work out’ being the key method to working it all out.
how do i know?
- i stopped wearing insoles in my pk shoes. the mornings after jams when i put my feet on the floor and take those first steps- it doesn’t hurt anymore! ah, sweet bliss!
- my landings are quieter. usually.
- i have so much more confidence moving around the environment. it’s all starting to fall into place.
- i’m practicing more frequently, but getting fewer and fewer scrapes and bruises. radular!
- i realized a few jam sessions ago that i actually am strong enough in the shoulders to get over those walls- no need to stop and curse and switch gears before moving on. there are a few other technical difficulties, but i can’t blame weak shoulders anymore so will have to find another excuse.
- i can get one of my legs behind my head again (eka pada sirsasana to the yogis). yiHAH!
Here’s an appropriate yogi quote for you: ‘Before you’ve practiced, the theory is useless. After you’ve practiced, the theory is obvious.’ -David Williams
keep practicing. it will all work itself out eventually.
