Fit To Ride
Have added tai chi back into my exercise mix. Had stopped when I torqued my ankle. [I’m Bored Already]
The online group I virtually attend does the first third of the form three times and then the entire form twice. For now, I am doing the three intro pieces and then signing off.
I am starting small to rebuild the habit. No matter how unmotivated I feel, I can do 10 minutes, right?
It’s not me being lazy. Or, not only me being lazy.
The point of a form is to know the pattern so well that you can flow through the movements with your body while your mind relaxes and centers. This does not happen if you are spending the entire time thinking, ‘You put your left foot in. You put your left foot out …’
I was having no luck learning the entire form. So, biting off one chunk and learning that.
Daily mile most days. One new place, Coach Kate’s gorgeous backyard, complete with water feature. Otherwise in pasture with Rodney.
5K for November was Magic City. Walk done. Walk report scheduled for next Friday. Spoiler – I finished.
I didn’t even last a month. I had resolved to walk without obsessing over the details. [Rearranging the Admin]
When I started drafting this post, I was annoyed that I couldn’t say for certain if I’d walked anywhere other than the pasture and Whip Hand Farm.
So. Back to keeping track. Keeping it simple. Where? How far? If pasture, did I walk by myself or with a horse? Not worrying about time or tenths of miles.
