Tai Chi Y2D350: Slowing, then Fast

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.
