Day Five: An Early Asana

Early morning workouts are a lot like drinking Maalox.  You might not like it when you’re drinking it, but you feel like a million bucks once it’s settled down in your body.  That probably was not the best analogy, but it’s all I could come up with when I was in downward dog at 6:00 a.m. This morning I got up at 5:15 to get to my 6 a.m. Power Vinyasa Flow at Yoga on 6th (Denver insider tip: if you’re shopping around for a place to practice, YO6th gives you two weeks of unlimited yoga for $25).  Even though I was there and practicing, I kept thinking “I wish I could be one of those people who gets up early and works out.”  Why would I be thinking that if I was actually having a good practice?  Probably because I feel like a fraud.  I’m not one of those people who actually enjoys getting up that early to practice.   Maybe that will change.  I have 360 days left to figure it out!
