Checking in! It’s almost Friday! I’m into Week 1 of Phase 2, and it’s kicking my butt more than I thought it would. My AT that I dinged last week doing flying pigeon (not crow) has been troublesome, so I’ve been sticking with the bike mostly this week. I’m not a fan doing so many days in a row of that, but I have been surprisingly strong on it. I’ll take what I can get. My lifting is hard, but I feel strong while working out. It’s later when I get whooped. Today was Leg day. I noticed that I definitely have better ROM squatting and lunging than I used to. I am happy with that, but of course, could still be better. Always something to concentrate on.
I’ve also begun a quest to improve my wheel and scorpion pose. I can “do them,” but my back doesn’t bend at all. It’s pretty comical. My wheel looks like a table. So, I’ve been trying to do a lot of chest/hip flexor openers. I doubt I’ll be picture pretty, but I’d like to improve at least somewhat. I also saw a picture of someone doing grasshopper. Oh, I’d love if my body could twist like that. So, I may add that to the list. The arm balance part isn’t the problem. It’s getting my foot onto my tricep that is doubtful.
