Woke up today just a tad stiff and sore. Traps are sore. Delts and quads are sore. Lower back tight. All the places you would expect after a few days of intense kettlebell work.
Over the weekend my postman was kind enough to deliver Scott Sonnon's Prasara Yoga DVD. "Perfect! Just what I need to help recuperate and loosen up!", was my first thought.
Started reviewing the Diving Dolphin sequence. Wow, this is harder than it looks. And I am SUPER tight today too. My Downward Facing Dog is downright painful. Not even going to attempt Dolphin Pose just yet. And my Plow isn't even close to plowing anything but air.
A new learning experience has begun!
I have yet to decide how to proceed now with my own training. Stick to the AKC Fitness Protocol? Alternate with some longer timed sets? Add a heavy day with some squats and core work? Sprinkle in some Prasara and Z-Health?
The road ahead is wide. I need to keep an open mind and a playful spirit. Kettlebells are FUN. At times painful, but still FUN. This is where things start to get interesting...
