Day 1 of a new hundred days of tai chi sucked. I was confused and I felt like I’d forgotten most of the steps. I actually did forget some of the steps, about two minutes in. I had to sit down, think a bit, and start again. It’s amazing how much I’ve forgotten.
Then I stood up, and did it again. This was better, but I ached and popped as all sorts of little bubbles of hurt jumped out and did the Lambada on me. My neck is the worst. Every time I moved, it felt like several things were going click-click-click in there that shouldn’t.
Lesson learned: Don’t be a desk slug for anybody. Not WWGS, not school, not even for poetry. Move your body every single day, whether you think you need it or not.
