Weekend Coffee Share # 19-The Sky Is Not The Limit

Coffee’s up. Come in and pull up a chair. The coffee is strong this morning. I do have tea if you prefer it. If we were having coffee I would ask if you can relate to this. You know how we like to think we can do anything if we try hard enough. I recently enrolled in a ‘beginning’ Yoga class and found that it was too challenging for me. When I was younger I was able to do it. The instructor moved us through the poses pretty fast and some of the poses would be too hard on my shoulders and actually triggered vertigo. I felt like I was going to fall down from vertigo on the way out of the class last week. I had been trying to stick with it to see if I could improve over time. The vertigo episode made me realize that this class is probably not for me. I have a problem quitting something. I don’t like to admit I can’t do it. I have to tell myself that we all have limitations. There is no shame in accepting that we can’t do something. It is better to accept this than have a bad fall and possible injury if I continue with the class. You are not a failure if you try something and realize it does not suit you or you do not have the ability to do it. I can still do some gentle Yoga classes. The Chair Yoga class is working out well. You might think, like I did at first, that chair yoga means sitting in a chair doing yoga poses. Actually, you do not spend hardly any time sitting in the chair. The chair is used as a prop and for balance. I am glad I decided to try it again. The class is not overly crowded. We are spread out and all wearing masks.

I’m so excited to tell you that on one of my walks this week I spotted not 1 but 3 roadrunners. The first sighting was of a pair of roadrunners. One was larger than the other. I am guessing they could be mates or a parent and child. The larger one ran out first and the other stayed near a bush. Eventually the smaller one joined the larger one on the green. I had to shoot photos pretty blind because of the light and distance. I am not allowed to walk onto the golf course unless I am playing golf. The third road runner was making its way near some houses on another street. Unsuccessful in getting a photo of that one. I feel so lucky to have seen all three of them though. It really made my day.


Hallelujah! A pair of roadrunners

    I’m glad you’re enjoying the chair yoga class. There are different yoga styles/ classes so no need to stay in a class that doesn’t work for you. Very nice desert plants and so cool that you got photos of the roadrunners. #Weekendcoffeeshare

    Roadrunners! I didn’t even know they were a real thing! I’m an Aussie and we definitely only know about them from the cartoon. Now I know they’re not made up so I’ve learnt something for the day 🙂
    I’ve been thinking about doing yoga for a long time but never found a beginners class nearby – maybe I’ll stick with my Tai Chi instead if it’s not as easy as it looks….

      I have taken Yoga in the past and benefited from it. But you have to find the right fit for you. Tai Chi is supposed to be good for stretch and balance. Yes, roadrunners are definitely real.

      Many readers have said they thought roadrunners were only in cartoons. They are real and I really love seeing them in person. Although, they do move pretty fast and don’t stay still for a photo very long.

    I’ve never been to a yoga class. I feel like I would be kicked out for laughing at myself. Yay for spotting AND photographing the roadrunners. That would be cool to see.

    I don’t like to admit defeat either. I have read about chair yoga. It sounds like a good option. I am going to check it out. Maybe there are chair yoga classes near me. So cool that you spotted 3 roadrunners!
