Woke, and did both qi gong forms, and eight tai chi forms. No push-ups during the main workout, though I did some in the middle of writing this entry; my stomach has been overly sensitive the last few days that I’ve been in Maine, and the position of being stretched out and pushing up and down has been uncomfortable. Today felt like that would be easier, and so I did. And it was.
I was able to introduce some of the elements of movement into my practice today—pushing outward, pulling inward, splitting movements. These require a degree of tension, or at least focus. I wasn’t able to maintain that focus for all eight iterations of the form, but I did ok.
