Is yoga a sport? It's the closest I come to being sporty, so that's how I categorize it.
I had yoga last night. A private practice with Sarah. I worked really hard and wimped out of a few things because I cramping (calf) and then my foot was really hurting. I was afraid I was re-injuring my left foot (planar facitis, takes forever to heal). I did however, manage to do a pretty respectable dolphin on the wall. I haven't done that since my third session. The last time she tried to get me upside-down on the wall I turned into a sobbing mess.
It felt awesome once I got up there. Took me several tries, but once I was up I felt like I could stay there for a while. The weak point was my lower back. I was swaying back and forth there, I couldn't keep my tailbone tucked in that position. Need to strengthen that area. My shoulders have gotten much stronger since November.
I work really hard in practices, but I tend to let my mind take over. I fear injury and my mind just won't let go of my body. I can't just ignore the fear completely though, because I do have some weak and vulnerable spots (knees and feet). My practice is a balancing act in more than one way.
Good news: I am hardly sore at all 29 hours later. A little tender, but not crazy, "My god, what have I done?" sore.
