The Endless Mysteries

157 classes in 153 days.
10 classes in 10 days in the 101 challenge.

The more I practice Bikram, the less I seem to know about how my body will respond each day. I don't know how many times I've been asked by yogis and non-yogis alike if I get bored doing the same 26 postures everyday. I emphatically tell them it's never the same class. This was proven to me again over the weekend.

As you know from my last posting, I've been fighting off a cold the past few days. Thursday's class was rough, and all day on Friday I felt terrible. I really had no interest in going to class at 5 PM, but of course I did. I then proceeded to have one of my best classes ever. I had a few of those "Is my body really doing this?" moments during the class. I simply smoked the standing series, it was effortless and lots of fun. Floor series went great too, and i don't even recall being tired at any point during the class.

Then on Saturday and Sunday, I felt great going into class, but the classes themselves were just Ok. Not rough by any means, but nothing special. I wasn't too excited about my class on Saturday, but the girl I was practicing next to told me a had a really good class. It's funny, it's not the first time I've been told by someone I had a good class when I didn't feel it was very good. I think this is a good sign actually, when I don't feel great, but my postures still look Ok.

So who knows how Monday will go? Or Tuesday? Or next month? That's part of the reason I keep coming back everyday!
