I took the afternoon off work, since my head’s been in a fog the past couple of days. Since I’m nowhere near as sick as J. was the past couple of days, it probably means that my body has been doing a decent job of fighting off the itch that’s been creeping up in my throat.
I also bowed out of gym tonight. I’m proud that I went on Monday and on Tuesday, but decided I needed the rest. Normally, I feel much more active, but lately have just felt slow … thankfully not full blown sick, but just, for lack of a better word, muted. Therefore, with my lack of energy, I decided just to work on a few wheel poses to unwind. I decided to forego the blocks under the wrists, as I’d been doing on the weekend, and work on stabilizing between the arms and the legs. Here’s my best shot.
A bigger improvement compared to my first attempt. I’m still struggling to pump my chest forward; my triceps aren’t strong enough to push my weight all the way up so that my shoulders are straight over my hands. Will keep working on this.
