Now imagine skipping months of classes.
I swear, it didn't hurt this much when I started the class the first time. I know it's just the fact that I'm horribly out of shape and have no muscle, and that it'll go away soon, but the fact is that when I walked into the class last week, I knew absolutely nothing. Couldn't balance, couldn't stretch. I had issues doing dog pose. That's pretty lame. Meanwhile, the person next to me was doing headstands for fun.
I also went this week (I am never forgetting another class for as long as I live, this I swear upon many baked goods), and I swear I did something bad to my shoulder (still hurts). I did, however, redeem my skills in bending by flaunting the fact that I can do a full wheel pose and the rest of them can't. Neener, neener, neener. So for another week, I will remember this and feel smug. At least until next Tuesday and Ms. Balancing Skills does her headstand again. *grumble*
P.S. Tylenol is my new best friend.
