Setting Expectations

Hot yoga was not my plan for this morning. I ran last night because I planned to go to my more-typical vinyasa flow yoga this morning.

Before leaving for class, I double-checked the schedule. Tuesday mornings are not vinyasa first thing but HPF (hot power fusion). Had I looked before bed, I probably would’ve skipped yoga. I’m grateful for my assumption because it got me up and to the mat.

My body has been feeling the shock of a return to strength training and yoga. HPF was just what I needed after all. It’s difficult to take time for slower, purposeful classes because they don’t seem as “efficient” but their value is long lasting. Slowing down gives me the recovery and strength I need to continue building muscle and speed without injury.
