Rest and Yoga

Downloaded “Dark Horse” by Nickelback last night. Gena and I listened to it pretty much all the way through. Some of it is really good, much what I expected. Some of it will probably grow on me. Some of it was sappy (Gotta sell to chics too!). And some of it was… meh. A little to much screaming, not quite the hard drive I was looking for, but all around not to bad. I’m afraid they’ve hit their peak though. “All The Right Reasons” was probably the top of the mountain. I’m glad Gena and I will always have that concert as one of our “first” memories.

No, not Yoda… “Stretch you must. Bounce, do not.”

So my wife and I make a deal. After lamenting some of my inflexibility, she says she’ll teach me yoga since I’m “introducing” her to CrossFit. (I dare say instructing or helping, because most of the time it’s the blind leading the blind).

Unlike my newbieness (Is that a real word?) to CrossFit, she’s been a yoga, holistic, herbalessance kind of person for a long time. What I know about yoga, you could put on a post-it note. But what I do know is that it involves a lot of good stretching and should help me with my flexibility. So we agree that on “Rest Days” we’ll do her routine. In my mind, I thought, “Pffft, this is going to be a cake walk.”

Wrong. We’ve only had two sessions so far and each one not only confirmed my incredible inflexibility, but that getting flexible is painful, taxing and not easy. I didn’t feel to bad immediately after the sessions, but the next day I was feeling it.

I do, however, see a slight controversial grin on my wife when I am in… let’s say… the more awkward positions. Maybe it’s just my imagination… but her eyes seem to be saying, “Remember all those burpees you made me do last night? Now you’ll feel my pain…muahahahahaha!!!!”
