For the last few days, I've had a cold. I blame it on going drinking with Laura's friends on the weekend. Pesky students with their germs...|
So, I spent today feeling a little under the weather. Sniffing, coughing, not quite being fully with it, usual stuff. I then came home, and headed to yoga.
This term, I've been going to a beginners yoga course run in the Iffley village hall. It's a massive 2 minutes walk away, and very friendly. The teacher even makes suggestions on what lame, non flexible men should do when they just can't bend/stretch as the position requires!
Anyway, I turned up feeling sniffly and not quite with it. Within about 10 minutes, I'd largely stopped sniffing and coughing, and was feeling much better. By the end of the session, I was feeling almost like normal.
Alas, the effect has started to wear off, and I'm probably half way back to feeling as bad as I was during the day. Still, it did make me feel better for a bit, and I'm getting close to being able to touch my toes. Now to get everyone to stop sniggering when I say I'm going to yoga...
