Plus I ache all over. Was having so much fun working through intermediate yesterday that I didn't notice the toll it was taking. Did I really need to have ten attempts at kanandavasana and four Kapo's. Heaven knows how many times I tried jumping into Bakasana to try and land it higher up the arm. There's nothing pulled, or twisted, or tweaked just feels like I've been ten rounds with Tyson,..... the early Tyson.
So have cranked up the central heating and turned on the electric heater and am now waiting for my "shala" to trap some heat. After all this work on Intermediate yesterday I want to practice with Richard Freemans Intermediate DVD this morning, try and get into the rhythm of it.
That's the intermediate, where's the close shave?
Decided with summer coming it was time for a shave and bought myself a new razor.....THE razor.
If getting both legs behind my head in Eka Pada Sirasana for the first time yesterday was a high, first shave with this razor was even more so.
I was giggling to myself for heavens sake. But it's just a razor! Oh no, I beg to differ. It has six blades, SIX. five on the frount and a thoughtful extra one on the back. It has 15 micro fins, but they are mini microfins. And it VIBRATES. This a is weird, tingly sensation, yet quite pleasurable. It glides, oh it glides. At first I thought the blade that came on it might have been one of those fake ones with no actual blade. I mean this is only my third shave after having a beard for the last year, it normally hurts a little but not here. Picture Lino Miele gliding over the mat and you get an idea. This is the Lino Miele of razors.
Yes I know the adverts make you cringe as does the price, but wait there's a recession, whose going to pay fifteen quid for a razor....so they dropped it to seven, and you can pick up the blades cheap now on ebay. (Damm, there goes my years supply of blades from Gillette for this plug).
Oh and it's black.....shinny black. Ahhhh just got it that's why they call this one the Stealth. Stealth bomber, so desu ka.
Another comparison with Ashtanga. After your practice high, there's the come down when you realize you have to wait till the following morning before you practice again. Same with the new Gillette Power Fusion Stealth, oh yes, "the best a man can get" Razor.
Or like me, this week, you can practice and shave twice a day.
So now do I practice first or shave first?
