The reason I'm not hiking today is that the hard hike (Ridley Creek) would have been too hard on my knee, and I wanted to protect it and use it to hike another day. And then it turns out they might not have gone there after all, since the weather projected an inch of rain in the area for today. But I had other plans anyway; I decided to try a new yoga class, one a little harder than my gentle yoga.
It was quite successful, and I decided to go ahead and try it this coming semester. That means I'll still take one gentle class and one Level I class. The only day this new teacher holds the class, other than Thursdays, is on Sunday at 9:00am, which means as soon as I get my Sunday post done, I'll be getting up and heading off to my class. I really kind of like early exercise, as you might have noticed. I'm a little sore right now from the class, which is something that never happens in gentle yoga (obviously).

Maybe it's a good idea to mix things up now and then, because now I'm excited about this new yoga class. I didn't have anything scheduled for Sundays, so now every day of my week has got some exercise on the agenda. Makes me smile that I now can look forward to Sundays!!
