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
Infinite Love & Gratitude!
