I just wrapped up a 40-day yoga challenge. It was hard and rewarding and very, very sweaty. I tested the limits of my schedule, managed to get my arms a little straighter in wheel pose and did so. much. freaking. laundry. I’d highly recommend it.
But there are a few things you should know going in. So, just to prepare you, here are a few thoughts that might cross your mind during a 40-day long yoga challenge, or any length for that matter.
Day 1 This is going to be so great.
Day 4 Holy crap. That’s got to be a record for sweating.
Day 7 Huh, I think I’m a little sore
Day 8 Nope, I’m definitely sore.
Day 12 Where did I leave my mat?
Day 15 I cannot do one more high boat, low boat.
Day 20 Where did I leave my mat?
Day 22 Why does waterproof mascara only come off during hot yoga?
Day 23 I have never done so much laundry.
Day 26 I’m never signing up for one of these again.
Day 29 No one in the history of the world has ever sweated that much.
Day 30 Before class: There is no way I can do wheel pose today.
After class: I totally rocked wheel pose today.
Day 32 God, how long are we holding warrior one today?
Day 33 No one in the history of the world has ever done this much laundry.
Day 35 Are they going easier on us?
Day 38 Am I actually stronger?
Day 40 I would definitely do this again.
