I completely slacked off this week – mostly due to fun outings after work. The last time I went swimming was Easter Monday! To make up for this, I had a grueling schedule today: swimming in the AM and hot yoga in the PM. This leaves me exhausted & ready to snooze right about now!
En route to the pool, I saw tons of bikers on the road. As the peloton past by, I couldn’t help but felt jealousy building up inside me. I’m getting frustrated with my injury. I know there are injuries that are far worst. But believe it or not, this is the most sustainable injury I’ve ever had & it’s not happening at a good time. Swimming is getting boring…..it involves going back & forth in a rectangle after all. 😦 I really want to get on my bike or even put on my runners. I’m slowly accepting the fact that I can’t participate in my race come May 14 ….. yep, money down the drain. But please please please let me be okay by June. I would be devastated if I miss my biking events. 😦
I heard about Moksha Yoga from my physiotherapist. It’s a tad closer to my office than iam yoga & it’s less expensive. I want to try out different hot yoga studios before “settling” down. So off I went to Moksha today for their $20 Introductory Special – unlimited classes for 10 consecutive days. I was excited to sport my new gears today….new lulu headbands!! Not too exciting?? It is for me!! 😀
Verdict: Moksha was as clean as iam yoga. But I’m glad I went to iam yoga for my 1st yoga experience. Moksha has a long narrow yoga room – there was space for only 2 rows of students. It was difficult to watch the instructor; there was no space for her to be at the front of the room. Luckily, I knew what to expect today & was semi-familiar with some yoga poses from last Monday. For those who’ve done yoga before, this shouldn’t be an issue except to arrive early to get a spot!
I’m still debating whether to return to iam yoga after my 10 days. Well in any case, I expect a grueling 10 days of hot yoga ahead of me. 😀 Get ready to sweat…..oh, and a lack of sleep!!!!!
