Then Walk the Green Cones. 20 obstacles. Only running 14 though, but walk them all because if we aced those 14 would we get to run all of them... Except when the first person in class aced it, it turned out that "all of them" actually included also the first sequence of 11, so suddenly now 31 obstacles. It was brilliant. Because we all went a little into panic mode, our heads had just been deep into just the new 20 and had essentially deleted the first 11... I don't know physiologically why, but It was almost like being at a trial, the adrenaline, the brain a little rattled, ahhhhhhhh what was the course? how exactly did i handle that? and how am I going to handle obstacles 12-13 without that lead out I did when it was obstacle 1-2?
My Notes for what I gotta work on:
learn to keep my hands low
work on continuing to support the send with my arm and shoulders as I move outta there with my feet
No class next week: Soshana is in CA at the ONEMIND seminars again
Stell was brilliant. but she seems like her back is sore, she moves ok, but she won't do a full stretch bow. always part of our warm up. she does a half a curtsey or a full down but something keeps her from keeping her butt up and stretching her back ... massage and heat, maybe medicam????
this was the assignment and I have not been anywhere I could practice it in real life yet. so I do it mini in the living room. I think mini is fine. Sometimes I do mini all in one spot before a run, I will handle the whole course in a two foot square area or less... Stella is often confused by this and not sure what she should be doing. I must figure that out, what t do with her when I need to go completely into my own head for a minute. It never is for long.
and I heard back from onemind about my #1 challenge video that I posted here and was too embarrassed to post on their ultracool oneminddogs page... Noora said this:
and I said sure, if you think someone else could learn something from it...
Home is a whole different place with both our girls home for the holiday. It's impossible to describe. Especially sweet because I think this May not happen here again that life is going to bring us much upheaval and change in the next year. How it will play out is a little scary
(Imagine a photo of four smiling humans two smiling cats and one smiling dog)
We finally had our own thanksgiving dinner last night. Everyone bumping into each other in the kitchen before--making it happen
(Until I upload the photo imagine a beautiful feast filled dinner table--- including some new tasty vegetarian dishes--that is usually filled with stacks of bills and half done projects and sore-issue things like that)
The firstborn got me and her sis to go to her latest fitness obsession soul cycle. Do you all know soul cycle. Gah. Almost died. But what fun and very very very cool. And I can really really really feel it today
We finally also watched the thanksgiving day parade on dvr also caught the girls up on backtoback homeland episodes And are going to hunger games today. All four if us. So rare.
After that the firstborn goes home and tomorrow morning the youngest flies away.
