I realised yesterday I'd hot the half way point in the 60 day challenge. I know I'm not really counting the days but it felt good to be at this point. I just need to do the same again. After a rocky week last week with loads of conflicting advice and thoughts flying round my head I've chilled out a bit. My mind is still very much on LA and preparing myself the best I can.
Had some great advice off a senior instructor last night not to kill myself in the first few weeks of training. Go at half pace. Don't be lazy but back off. If I fly in there all guns blazing and pushing hard I'll either A) get injured or B) end up in emergency care C) not make it to the end of the 9 weeks.
There's been discussion on the TT FB group page about being rock stars at Training and doing every single posture in every single class. Good on those people for their positive determination and enthusiasm. Realistically after my rough UK classes where I was out my comfort zone, jet lag, nutrition all out of wack and dehydrated, I can safely say I won't be a rock staring it. Well at least not for the first weeks till I'm settled into the journey.
I will set no expectations now, if I rock, I rock, if I end up on my knees slowly melting into my mat so be it. I'll try to keep to my no drinking as I know it will make me sick in class but again if needs be I'll drink. I am not gonna set myself any crazy goals just that I will make it through the whole 9 weeks. Some way or other I will. I'll keep my head down, get on with it and let it happen.
