I did a full set this morning. But I did it in a very interrupted way. First came the qi gong in its two forms, and then 25 push-ups. And then one tai chi form. Then there was a break of several hours, followed by the second tai chi form all the way through the eighth.
As I said, interrupted.
The reason for the interruption isn’t really important. But it does appear that doing tai chi in interrupted sets is probably not a good idea. I felt ok after the first part, but now after the second set I feel like crud. There may be other stuff going on, of course. But I feel like I worked up a lot of internal energy… and then I worked up a lot of internal energy again. And that combination doesn’t appear to sit well on my body.
