Well, I’m dyspraxic - it has got better with age, though. I put that down to playing a lot of computer games. My proprioception still sucks, though.
So, aches and pains - traps, as expected, and hips (side glutes, basically - my abductors) were the worst.
Went to yoga class. It went OK. I’m still not convinced doing those backbends is good for me.
Did a headstand with assistance from the instructor. My neck didn’t care for that too much. Hurts the top of my head too. Need thicker mats, I reckon.
It was funny - she was advising people to imagine they were 8 years old when they were trying the headstands, because apparently kids are more fearless and better able to do stuff like this. Totally the wrong thing to say to me, though. As a kid I had very little confidence in my physical abilities - I fell over a lot, would never attempt any gymnastic move at all, and wouldn’t even go on the scary rides at the fair. I didn’t get into my whole extreme rollercoaster thing until I was 30, pretty much. Couldn’t catch a ball either. I guess I’m a late bloomer.
Incidentally, thanks to the three people who have sponsored me for the 15K - much appreciated. It really helps.
