I practiced. It was better than yesterday. Slowly I get back to the strength and flexibility that I had before my little break. I remained on the mat, I was focused on the breath. The challenge was to accept that I wasn't that flexible and not so strong either. I didn't omit an asana, I did them all. Longer than usual I sat in lotus pose and breathed deeply and evenly.
I was concentrated and this is a form of strength too, inner strength.
I can be happy. My back still hurts, but only a little bit. To go slowly into the poses is important.
That's what I've learned from the last injury.
The sun starts shining. I will walk downtown. Boyfriend will come with me. He is back from Sweden and busy with his emails as usual.
