Summer is seriously just around the corner now and today hit 41℃ (105.8℉), yikes! I love a BBQ and this summer I want to clear out the backyard and buy a wading pool. A barbie (vegie style thanks), lots of beer and a pool. Can't think of anything more relaxing while hanging out with friends in the summertime. Unfortunately, this also marks the bushfire season. A shout out to all the firefighters and volunteers helping fight the fires today, you guys are so amazingly brave - thank you.
Today's practice: 75 min Jivamukti Yoga w/ Sarah Trestrail
This morning's practice was good but now I'm in a bit of pain - not the teacher's fault! It's always a little more challenging practicing in the heat, and Sydney gets very humid, but the practice is modified to suit. I kept forgetting to breathe and I was slack in my alignment. Really slack because I know myself to get lazy in the heat. I also tried to push myself too far in my forward bends, twists and reclining hero pose. The pain is centred directly below my ribcage. It's happened before when I push myself too far but it usually goes away overnight. It's just a bitch right now and will be when I try to go to sleep. I really hate taking medication but I have to for the muscle ache or it's very uncomfortable. Live and learn.
