My calves feel like two heavy, sore logs attached to my legs. Ug. I don't think it's from all the yoga. More likely, it's due to Journey Dance and perhaps a small part of the blame can be given to all of the crazy moving squatting things I did in those Shiva Rea-esque Prana Flow classes. Anyways...ouch.

I did a small restorative practice right before I went to bed. I did several hip and hamstring stretches, plus an intense twist learned at Natasha's session yesterday. To be honest, I *am* a bit burned out on yoga at the moment. It's also strange to be back to a home practice. Alone on my mat, it's a bit of a let down not to have Rodney Yee stop by to adjust my downward facing dog, or enjoy a wicked adjustment in upward facing pigeon from Natasha Rizopolous. The truth is, I love taking yoga classes and I miss them. Something to think about, I guess.

I'm still playing my guitar with great dedication. Like yoga, it's a daily practice and my guitar teacher seems pleased with my progress. I'm delighted with my progress so far. I just can't believe how much guitar I can play! I can sing and plan songs! (at the same time!) I can play fancy stuff! It's all very exciting... Alas, today's lesson is the last until mid-May. There were too many scheduling conflicts to set something up so I'm on hiatus until then. Still practicing, though. Teacher has given me “I've Just Seen a Face” by the Beatles to learn.

Ice Hockey finals were tonight and my team played for 5th place. Despite being short-handed and not having a goaltender, we won the game 7-6. I was deeply exhausted and didn't stay long at the pub afterward. The end of the ice hockey season is the end of ice skating for me, until the season starts back up in September.
