Keeping Track

Well, I’ve had this listed as a goal for a while, and haven’t done much about it. So, I’ve decided to start keeping track. We’ll see how that goes, until I get in the habit and feel like I’ve “completed” this goal. So, over the past several days:

9/17 – did a full backbend (wheel/urdhva danurasana) over the back of a chair. I don’t mind doing this pose on the floorm but I was scared about doing it over a chair. It was part of my yoga teacher training, though (it’s apparently a good way to help people who’ve not done the pose before get into it), so I did it, even though I was terrified that the chair was going to tip backwards and send me crashing into the wall and floor. But it was fine. It actually felt pretty good, once I got all the way in and felt stable. I did keep my toes pressing HARD into the floor though. No way I was going to let myself tip over. :D

9/18 – I went ice skating for the first time in about 20 years. And it was SCARY getting on the ice the first time. After a little while, though, my balance came back, and by the end of the session, I was zooming all the way around the rink. (Okay, so “zooming” might be an exaggeration, but I was going reasonably fast).

9/19 – I drove up and down Mt. Diablo (several times, actually). And no, this isn’t a terrifying thing for me – I do it at least once every year. But it is a winding mountain road with drop-offs and no railing, so it pushes up just a bit on my fear of heights. Also, I let my son do some rock climbing. Just a tiny bit nerve-wracking. :D

9/20 – I assisted in teaching a yoga class. Defnitely nerve-wracking, but I think it went really well. Afterwards, several of the students came around and thanked me for giving them adjustments, so YAY!
