I started out really slow this morning on tai chi. If I’d kept that speed, I would have had an awesome tai chi workout. It would have taken me 20-25 minutes to do the form at that speed, but it would have been fantastic. I could feel the rising energy in a way that I haven’t in a while.
And then, about twelve postures into the form, the energy just died. I couldn’t sustain it. It was like the battery just suddenly drained from my cellphone; or I’d pulled the stopper out of the bath drain. Boom. I felt all that energy and tingling drain away. And I completed the tai chi form at my normal speed. And instead of it taking 20 minutes, it took maybe 10.
I don’t have any idea why. Just, suddenly, there was no power steering for the bus-of-me. I guess my take-away is that I know how to aim for this goal in the future. But I’m going to have to work up to it.
