I love to work leg on Mondays. But this time I feel my legs need a special care. Why? Yoga. My flexibility has always been a problem. You know about my back injury. I used to visit my physiotherapist once a week.
But I decided to take some yoga classes to get out of my routine. Even maybe it could relief my anxiety a little bit. The surreal poses that came to my mind made me laugh. I couldn´t sit on the floor with my legs crossed for two minutes so what happened after my first class was amazing.
It was a little painful at first, a lot of fun in the middle, sleepy at Shavasana and surprising once I left. As I was walking home, I realized my toes were facing forward… WT?? I’ve been walking thirty-six years with my feet forming a V, heels together and separate toes. What just happened?
Strange things like this first one happened after every class, three times a week. I concluded that the chair and the sofa were not my friends. They´re pretending 🙂
I sit on the floor every day since.
This is after today´s workout. It´s a bad half lotus pose. The “journey” was scary sometimes, I felt my knee´s tendons and ligaments on the edge. On the other hand, how my leg´s muscles worked in almost each pose, and how ached after a regular sun salutation, I decided to skip leg day until further notice.
Now I face it as a rehab training.
You can laugh at me, but I suffered 🙂
Have a nice week ahead!
