Tai Chi

october 30 2008

Even though my back is still hurting I went to Tai Chi.
It's supposed to be healthy and working on my spine and muscles will only benefit me.

I nearly overslept, but some inbuilt alarm woke me up half an hour before the lesson started.
So I jumped under the shower, dived in my clothes, ate something and took my meds, even brushed my teeth and drank some water and off I was.
Walking was more of a problem than bicycling, I found out today in the 5 minutes to the eight location.

The group consists of about 10 very nice women between 20 and 80.
I think we're going to have a lot of fun. But we also worked very serious.

The exercises were very tiring, but that's no problem.
It was the first time after years of doing nothing, so I had no expectations about that.
Near the end I started to get too much pain, but now I'm home I feel rather OK.

It's nice to do something for myself, and to be honest, I didn't think one single moment of anything else.
That's so great!!

I think I've found myself a new hobby, maybe even a lifestyle.

  3. Hi Laane- thanks for dropping by my blog Vintage Jewelry Pics. I have wanted to do Tai Chi for sometime but it is hard to find time with 5 children and working at home. Good for you- sounds a bit more grueling though then I thought.

  4. I would love to try Tai Chi. It just seems so wholesome and that it would benefit me greatly. I have some lower back pain sometimes and that might be just what I need.
