Feeling Sore & Blue

I Duz Yoga Ta Relax

I started taking yoga at this new studio in the neighborhood on Sunday afternoon. I had a great time and felt so good afterwards. There's just something so gentle and peaceful about yoga, and yet it gives your muscles such a good workout.

I had hoped to take another class tonight, but I've found that my very most lower back (might that be the sacrum?) is really sore since I took that class. Not muscular sore, but almost like bruised sore. It mostly hurts when I make contact with any other surface like the back of a chair or my mattress. All I can figure is that the time I spent on my back on the hard floor during class did a number on me. So, I'm going to give myself as much time as I need to feel better before going back, and when I do go back I'm going to go with a better mat. I really need something thicker than the mat I've got now.

Have any of you experienced that type of soreness from yoga?

I've hardly been able to talk to Michael today and yesterday - his schedule has been hectic and his Internet hasn't been reliable. I just feel blue when we don't get to bookend our days with some time to talk. It's bad enough being apart. Every phone call via Skype is just precious to me.

Seventeen days until he comes home...

I've had similiar soreness after doing Yoga too. It was smart to take a break today. It should be better by tomorrow(I hope!). Then again, I'm not a doctor. I just play one on the internet. LOL! That must be so hard to be away from your hubby for such long periods of time. I hope the next seventeen days pass quickly for you both.

I cannot even imagine being away from my hubby that long.

I hope the next 17 days go by quickly!!

No yoga info. Hope you feel better soon, though. Here's to better internet connection so you can chat with M. in the meantime. =)

Yes, I have had that too. I took beginning and intermediate Yoga at the college and had to use 2 mats on top of each other.
