11 days, maybe 12?

I just looked at my calendar and realized that I have practiced yoga for 11 days straight. I had to skip practice at Shala X today because of a series of mishaps involving a Yu-Gi-Oh card, a homework folder, an anxious assistant teacher and a mom/dog-lover who caught me up in conversation about the joys of hound ownership (her dog is a dachsund, or as Adam says, a "wiener dog"). So now, what to do, what to do.

Bikram at 12:30? Or home Ashtanga practice? Or rest. Other factors:

  • Tomorrow is Saturday - no Ashtanga practice.
  • Sunday is a moonday - no Ashtanga practice.
  • From Thursday night until the following Saturday, I will be skiing in Utah. The only option apparently will be self-practice. But if prior history is an indication of future results, then I will likely have no energy to practice yoga at all while out there. It is just too damn exhausting. That said, I would like to try to fit in some Sun Salutations in the morning and seated poses at night.
So...must decide....must decide...must decide...

Oh, and did I mention I am running a bit low on energy this morning due to being woken up at 4 a.m. by a crazed hound howling at some invisible threat in the front hall? This howling went on for 20 minutes or so, until I managed to calm my crazy four-legged child down.

What to do...what to do...

Oh kids just sound great. lol.
Well, if you've been practicing for 11 days straight, you might want to take today off...and do bikram's tomorrow and sunday? Maybe possibly? I might do bikram's all weekend...

Take a day off. Or two.
There's a reason they do six days on, one day off -- for the body to recuperate.

I will take tomorrow off now and be back on the regularly scheduled Ashtanga program.

Except that I will probably go to the hot box on Sunday, which is a moon day at my shala.
