Temporary farmers field lake is still going strong and still delivering. Kind of want it all year round. Wonder if my hosepipe will reach that far….

I’m not sure it will.

I was doing my morning torture ritual. Set the alarm to go off while it’s still dark. Exercise and then let the real torture begin. Yoga. Trying to follow the helpful and really nice instructions.

“To extend this pose why don’t you just take those knees just a bit lower…”

I’m not sure they will.

“This is a scrumptious hip opener why don’t you just hold it for another 10 seconds…”

I’m not sure I have the will.

“Try to breathe in through your nose to the count of 7 and then breathe slowly out to the count of 8.”

I’m not sure my lungs will.

“Now try to touch the ground with the outside of your left knee while twisting your body as far you can to the right.”

I’m convinced it will not do that without rupturing my spine.

“While keeping your right leg off the ground cradle your left thigh with both arms, start to rock.”

If you count going into catatonic shock as rocking, then I can…

  1. The one thing I did before my knee completely blew out was a deep straight-leg bend, hands touching the step below the one on which I was standing. It felt great – no pain. But maybe the muscles snapped back a little too hard or something.

    Glad you had the will to get up and active. I was still trying to fall asleep at 5am.

      1. I didn’t feel ANY pull. I’ve been able to do that move for a long time. I’m completely puzzled and making best guesses at what caused the very sudden onset of my knee completely failing… fine during lunch break, major pain by 1:30pm, completely handicapped by that night.

      2. Thought of you last night as I used the straight leg waist bend move to pick up trash outside. Felt great. Didn’t seem to impact knee this time.


  2. Well… I know you survived cuz you wrote about it, and there are no cheeky comments from Hawklad about having to untangle you, so I feel okay about laughing πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    I’m hyper flexible but I won’t do yoga. I have quite enough trouble just walking or even sitting down without falling over.πŸ˜‚πŸ’ŒπŸ’ŒπŸ’Œ
