Very much the same with me :) I often think that I need lots of alone time to recharge.
Still very active in person if not online, with everything I mentioned previously. For example:
Yest was about a 5-6 mi run through the woods broken by dip bar walks, and kip pull/chinups.
Today was a Qigong warm, followed by a KB inspired WO with DB's up to 45#, with moves like swings, high pulls, cleans, snatches, and renegade rows.
step 6, close pushups: 2/11, 9
s 4, 1/2 pullups: 2/ 8, 8
s 7, Assisted 1 leg SQ (pushing on ground with free leg) set 1/7/11; set 2/ 6/9
s 6, Hanging Bent Knee Raise: 2/15, 15 will repeat
s 4, 1/2 HSPU (off 7-8" riser) 2/19, 20
s 3, Angled Bridge, 3/30, 30, 30 FINALLY moving on!
Marcos another thing that I've found really helps on the 1leg SQ is to perform it on slighty down angled ground. That helps to maintain forward balance if you have any trouble falling backwards.
Possible? Yes! (can't embed so somebody else can do the honors, pls)
Hello hello! Welcome back, You. :) WL is in the house!
Yesterday I had a CRAZY day full of housework that I tried to do as fast as possible.
Blowing up air mattresses, cleaning vigorously, hauling fruit loads, climbing stairs, etc.
Today I will be strolling around Manhattan. It's beautiful out! ;D)
I hope you are having a great Sunday. See you on Monday! :) Xx!
Hello Windlord!! So nice to read you :)
Had 2 days of complete rest, well... one day I did 24-forms of taichi and the other 8 pieces of Brocade qigong in the morning.
This morning 30 min In a Heartbeat Vinyasa yoga class, glad to feel the muscles working :)
10 min meridian qigong.
Back to bed for more healing rest, with 3 large glasses of green banana/pineapple smoothies.
Have spent my time well the last 2 days: watched 9 chapters of Oprah/Tolle classes, so today I'll watch the last one :)
Have a great Monday all!
Wow, congrats on completing the Tolle classes, Sita. :) Sounds like the classes were food for the soul!
Today & tomorrow I will be away from home & rolling like a tumbleweed. But I'll have my laptop with me. So I can read & reach out, but I don't think I'll have much exercise or news to report.
But if anyone else has exercise, insights, or exiting news to report -- I would love to hear it. :) Post away!
Love this music!! Glenn Gould is my example of how to play Wohltemperiertes Klavier!
Bach balances your mind, my teacher once said.
Feeling totally enlightened after the Tolle classes :D I'm so glad I could take the time to see the podcasts, I remember I couldn't get to read the book well at the time.
So being ill was good. Meanwhile I'm a few days on banana island. Will see how long I'm able to continue.
42 min Wrist Free Harmonious Hips Spinal Flow yoga class
10 min meridian qigong.
Have a great day all!
I know you will feel better soon. :) I feel in general you have gotten so much better & stronger.
Yes, I agree with your teacher. Classical music puts me in such a balanced state of mind.
When I was a youth, I used to sit in cafes that were near the University of Berkeley California.
All of the cafes near the college campus would play classical music while the students worked. (Maybe it's not like that now, but it was 25 years ago.) As a young person I felt so good in that environment. The silence of the students, the relaxed atmosphere, the uplifting & soothing music -- I think this is why I still thrive in those environments. It feels like home.
Keep going with spiritual podcasts, MP3s, audio books, & videos. There are so many.
Byron Katie, Adyashanti, Tolle, Caroline Myss, Nisargadatta, Ram Dass, Krishnamurti, Alan Watts, Isha Judd, Osho, Gangaji, etc.
It's a good practice to have. It's like keeping you in the "enlightening" conversation. It keeps you in that state of mind. (Just like classical music.) ;)
Oh, thank you for the list of podcasts! So nice you wrote about the atmosphere in the cafe's near Berkeley. I can imagine I'd feel at home too :)
Enjoy your busy day! XOX
- and thank you for feeling that I'm much better! I am! :) Love you.
Thanks. ;D) Yay!
Love you too! :) Xx.
Oh lucky you, Olya!
Camping is probably my number one favorite thing to do. :)
Hello Beloved Beings!
Today is my last day of rolling around like a tumbleweed. Tomorrow I will be back home again.
I am also looking into buying a pair of shoes online, to try a morning jogging routine. :) Oo la la.
These vegan running shoes are less than 49 dollars online, so it might end up being these...
The shoes look good Aimée ! Hello again Olya! Nice walk :)
25 min Surya Morning Flow yoga class
10 min meridian qigong
37 min Water Dance yoga class
7 min 24-forms Taichi
Still mainly eating bananas+smoothies.
I will be a bit less at the computer, hoping to get more things done in the house and focus on work, but will keep logging the workouts regularly :)
The weather is lovely here in Holland, it's like a summer holiday! ♥
