Day 32 - Home again

Got home yesterday and I know I'll be out of sorts for the next few days - I find the jet lag particularly difficult when I get back home since I don't have the same drive and energy as I tend to have on a business trip. While guidelines suggest 1 day recovery per eastward time zone(1 day per 1.5 westward time zones) that means I'll be back to normal in 15 days!?, for me it usually takes only a few days to get back on track.

During my workout today I concentrated specifically on my shoulders - I'd never focused on them like this before and found that at first my inclination was to tighten them up during a punch. When I relaxed them I found that the motion was much more fluid and I made use of the rest of my body, employing my legs and hips to a greater/or at least more natural degree. I also found that my shoulders were not fatigued the way they have been in the past.

During my flight yesterday I practiced my meditation. I was concerned it would suffer in the confines of the cabin but to the contrary I found it easy and enjoyable. In all I meditated a total of 3 times during the 15 hour flight and I know this made the trip more bearable.

See you soon.
