Health is Wealth - 71-76/243 - Recovery Week #RUN #YOGA #MTB

Ever notice how those who give their all to just “getting by,” usually do?
Yeah.
Then you must wonder, too, why they don’t just give their all to rocking the flippin’ world?
Costs the same.

Came down with strep the night of NYE. Went to minute clinic with a 105 temp and was prescribed antibiotics. While it hit it me pretty hard, i don’t feel like I have lost too much strength. Should be back to 100% this week no problem.

Happy New Year!

Do you think it would be cheating, knowing all that I know, if I placed a bet on your inevitable happiness, success, and saunter?

Good. Because I have. It was called the “Big Bang,” and every moment of every day I walk in your shoes.

I knew what I was doing.

If it’s not yet obvious to you, the real reason for this, and all seasons, is you. A more perfect child of the Universe has never lived. Until now, only celebrations cloaked in myth and mystery could hint at your divine heritage and sacred destiny. You are life’s prayer of becoming and its answer. The first light at the dawn of eternity, drawn from the ether, so that I might know my own depth, discover new heights, and revel in seas of blessed emotion.

A pioneer into illusion, an adventurer into the unknown, and a lifter of veils. Courageous, heroic, and exalted by legions in the unseen.

To give beyond reason, to care beyond hope, to love without limit; to reach, stretch, and dream, in spite of your fears. These are the hallmarks of divinity - traits of the immortal - your badges of honor. May you wear them with a pride as great as what we feel for you.

Your light has illuminated darkened paths, your gaze has lifted broken spirits, and already your life has changed the course of history.

This is the time of year we celebrate ..

The Corner of 8th & Insanity: When manifesting you need to remember these things. 1. Always stay positive. 2. Do not spend time thinking about the opposite of what you want. 3. Meditate daily on what you want. 4. See it, smell it, feel it and hear it. 5. If it is real in your brain, it will be real in the physical.

The Corner of 8th & Insanity: Energy is the currency of the universe. When you “pay” attention to something, you buy that experience. So when you allow your consciousness to focus on someone or something that annoys you, you feed it your energy, and it reciprocates with the experience of being annoyed. Be selective in your focus because your attention feeds the energy of it and keeps it alive, not just within you, but in to the collective consciousness as well.

YOGA: Corepower C2

  • Class #31

  • C2 11/30

  • 60min

  • Average HR: 113. Max: 174

  • Teacher: Jamie

  • NOTES: I had a great workout at the gym and dipped over to Corepower for Jamie’s C2 class. In hind sight, I should’ve eaten and gone to her C1 class at 1:30p. It was a strength circuit day, so I thought pairing that with the C2 was the best move.

    • Overall, the class was awesome. There were a couple of poses that I couldn’t get just due to my lack of flexibility which is awe some to me because it gives me something to aspire towards.

    • By the time we got to core challenge part of class I could feel my physical energy drain. From there the frustration built, and I did not recover.

    • I knew I should’ve taken it easy for a few different reasons: yesterday was a rest day, and I ran anyway. I got crap sleep and my HRV score was reflecting that. I had an empty stomach, why the hell didn’t I eat anything?

    • The great thing about Jamie is that she continually reminds us to ask ourselves what do we need. I finally started to listen to myself after the core challenge section by the time we got to pigeon. I struggled hard in the Warrior three poses, Virabhadrasana III and when we dropped to pigeon, I knew I just had to drop down into extended Child’s pose, Balasana. I had nothing left. After that, I rotated to my back and remained in Shavasana for the rest of class.

    • Jamie, I apologize if you sensed any negative vibes radiating from me. The frustration got to me. Thank you for a great class and I look forward to tomorrow’s C1 class
