So it's Friday which means PRIMARY series.
I was looking forward to this, going to bed early like it was Christmas Eve. For the last month, I've been going on and on here about how much I'm loving my Primary at the moment, my nice, tight flowing Primary. But after four mornings practising Intermediate I realised yesterday that I'm on for the Split. No reason to delay it any longer or to justify doing both. It was time to focus on Intermediate and developing the same kind of flow that I've achieved in Primary. Felt sad but accepting, comforted by the memory of posts I'd read, relating similar feelings bloggers had had moving from 2nd to 3rd.
So how was it? Hard, but not too hard. Lost a little flexibility in my forward bends, and while I could still bind Mari D, I couldn't reach my wrists. Need to make sure I make the most of the Intermediate binding poses like Bharadvajasana and Ardha Matsyendrasana. Navasana hurt and my Jump backs became a little ragged towards the end and especially my Jump through, need to make the most of them in 2nd as well. Kurmasana and Supta kurmasana were easier though and especially the Dwi pada entry where I managed to bind left leg first OK.
I enjoyed it, felt a bit like a dance, a celebration, but sad to think it's going to be a whole week before I visit it again.
