HRV Score: 52
Relative Balance: 2 (sympathetic)
Sleep: 7hr 11m

Overall morning mood: I woke up right as my alarm went off. So I felt like over slept a little bit. I didn’t sleep well, I felt like I tossed and turned and woke up to piss every hour or so. Despite my shit HRV score, I still felt like I felt pretty dang good and was ready for a strength circuit

Meditation Practice - 7:55a- 10m 58s - 5hz Theta

Do not let people’s opinions of you mold your destiny. Let unhappy people have their unhappy thoughts. Continue on your path courageously.

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
