Tai Chi Y4D142: Half-set

I did the 20 push-ups first. They’re definitely easier than when I started. But they’re not easy. I might have to start doing 40 again before 20 ever becomes easy again.  I’m not sure I want to go there.

Then I did one of the qi gong forms, namely Five Golden Coins.  I like this one a lot.  Five postures, sixteen repetitions, feels structured and good.

Then I did five repetitions of the tai chi form. This was pretty good: I focused on footwork and breathwork in the first iteration, outward and inward movements in the second, splitting and water movement in the third, and more of a combination-style in the fourth and fifth.  I’ve noticed some changes in my legs, recently. I’m getting stronger at holding postures, and moving slowly through them.  Definite progress here.
