I’ve been avoiding this. Mostly because I hate confrontation, but they say… the truth shall set you free… so out with it already!
Practice hurts lately. I’m in this strange space where forward bends are strangely uncomfortable as it feels that my left femur is jamming itself against my pelvis somehow and back bends are terribly painful as my lower back has decided to stop moving and my sacrum is ragged around the edges. So really the only time I’m pain free in practice is in samasthiti and in the midst of vinyasas between poses.
I’m having a tough time practicing through the pain.
Although I suppose it should be noted that all this pain stuff started popping up when my practice schedule became much more sporadic. Or was it right after that trip to Santa Barbara that began the Operation Unstick Jenna’s Spine? Not sure. Maybe a little of both. So my scapegoat is one of those two options.
Regardless, I’m definitely dreading tomorrow’s practice.
I feel much better having said this, though.
