On a cool rainy friday morning, I attended an extra yoga class. I have to say that I absolutely love my yoga class. Jessy Thomas from Bala yoga has been my yoga teacher for the last year. Even thought I know so much about my body as a triathlete, I am constantly learning something new. My body is leaning to use the right muscles for the task and relaxing the muscles that just tend to take over.
Today, for the first time in many years, I was able to sit cross legged on my sits bones, flat on the mat. That may not sound like a huge deal but I have been working that that little thing for the last 3 years. Three years. (pssst…that’s a long time to release one little muscle).
All the hard work has finally paid off. A huge victory. I am certain the release will positively affect my training and my racing season this year.
While I achieved this first goal, I still have a lot more work to do. I will keep going to my yoga class, at least once a week (more when my schedule allows). I will keep moving forward. I will keep practicing.
