I knew that I would regret it all day long if I didn't practice. Take it easy, was the motto today and I practiced, slowly and with some breaks. Breath was not deep, because a deep breath would have provoked coughing.
The practice was better than expected. I emphasized upward facing dog. I feel less and less resistance, doing this pose. I hold it for some breaths, I thought that it would be a good massage for the throat when the head falls backwards. Urdhva dhanurasana was great, too, today. I had not much expectations and I was surprised with a wonderful performance.
This night I slept a bit longer and my coughing this morning is a bit less painful. Of course to stay at home would be better for my health, but it is not the time to do so.
Sitting meditation was accompanied by coughing and scratching, but only a few times. 15 min are also a short time. It's amazing what thoughts came up. They seem so arbitrarily to me, without real meaning. Why do I take these thoughts so seriously sometimes, I wondered.
