Janathon day 13: Clunk click

Given the fact that the weather’s supposed to get worse as the week goes on, I probably should have run tonight. Unfortunately between work and home, something went twang and left me with a very clunky and painful thoracic spine and shoulders, so it was back on the mat tonight.

I started to try a guided meditation, but was distracted by my shoulders and decided to try and free them up instead. It probably wasn’t the most perfect of example of yoga practice, but I rifled through my tired brain to move from one pose to the next. When my shoulders are misbehaving, I love Eagle pose. Alright, I love a seated Eagle pose, my balancing, standing Eagle looks more like a drunk, plummeting parrot. It’s easy enough to do at your desk, but twisty enough to look like you know what you’re doing.

I think the highlight of my session was saying to (non-Yoga) Ginge – what pose should I do? He suggested child’s pose and it turned out to be exactly what I needed. I hate it when he does that…
