Today Tom got Mia to sleep, for real this time, while I got Eevory to go to sleep. Then I had an entire practice without baby or toddler interference. Eevory woke up at some point and Tom held her.
Even though Tom has zero experience with Ashtanga, I found myself trying harder than I had the previous days since he was watching me. What can I say. I wanted to impress my husband.
I don't feel like I've made any gains in strength yet. If anything, I feel like I'm moving backwards. Soreness from the previous days keeps me from pushing too hard. I'm still far, far away from a decent Chaturanga Dandasana.
Flexibility is coming along. My hamstrings stopped screaming at me in Adho Mukha Svanasana. My calves, always tight, are starting to lengthen a bit.
I'm going to try to go to a led primary class tomorrow. If the girls are having a rough day, I won't abandon Tom with them. If I do go, I'm expecting a thorough ass kicking.
