There are lots of different types of yoga practice, but at the class I go to on Sunday’s ( see how I made that sound like I’ve been doing it regularly for years!) Cheryl starts with a bit of lying down, breathing exercise and asks us to ‘be aware of our thoughts and then let them go’. Last Sunday I was nicely relaxed when I found that in my mind I was running up the steep embankment that leads to the canal.
When I became aware of the thought, it was with mild surprise to find that running had become my ‘happy place’. Especially surprised about running up that embankment, it’s only about 10m elevation but it’s tough! Also it’s next to an old factory site so it’s not exactly pretty!
I haven’t been running there for a while as I wouldn’t run there in the dark, but today presented the perfect opportunity. No ice, no rain, no work, no Son. It was lovely out, and just started to hailstone on the way home.
