I did it! I did it! *happydance* I managed to get through my Primary! And no shortcuts! It wasn't a bad practice, but there wasn't a lot of backbending either. I'm starting to worry that I'll lose all of my hard-earned Backbending Mojo from sitting out my Intermediate during this illness.

I didn't feel sick during my practice, but I did feel a bit weak and I was losing momentum near the end.

I had to teach this morning, but I tried to take it easy the rest of the day. Tonight, I'm still feeling slightly queasy.

I can't believe this bug has lingered on for so long! I'm worried about next week. It's going to be VERY busy and I'll be in workshops the next weekend. I absolutely *need* to be 100% by then.

My exciting plans for tonight involve rest and sleep. Tomorrow, more of the same. Go, Immune System, go! *pompomshake*


Meanwhile, in an amazing feat of intuition, I took a State-of-the-Backbend photo on Monday, *before* The Plague hit.

While it's not the best backbend I've ever done, I'm pretty sure this Urdhva Dhanurasana is miles better than anything I've done over the last few days.

I'll take it:

Hi Kai!!!
Good for you. I hope you do feel 100% next week, maybe even 110%.

I'm still procrastinating endlessly. AM I going to practice today? I'm soooo bad, so very very very bad these days. I don't care that much about asana! :) I'm now in love with sitting still and rattling around inside my head. I might be on a down shift until May.

Give me an I!
Give me an M!
Give me another M!
Give me a U!

OK, OK, you get the point. I hope you really do the shake the last of it soon!
