Confession: The last time I attempted a headstand was probably 3 weeks ago … maybe longer, and I could NOT get up. I could not get my hips over my shoulders, couldn’t get my balance shifted so I could make it into a headstand. It really disappointed me. I was tired at the time, and I have kinda hung onto that small thread as the reason, but I haven’t tried it again, not wanting it to be confirmed that I can no longer do a headstand because I’m not strong enough to balance and lift the extra weight I’ve gained.
This week I’m starting to feel more ‘on track’ than I have in a long while, so, I decided to give it another try. I did it against the wall, but didn’t have to use it to balance. It took two tries to hold it, and wobbly AF, and it didn’t last long, but I made it.
The weirdest part is that my QUADS start to cramp … quads? Why quads? I don’t know, but they were super-unhappy with the whole thing. So weird.
But, now I know I can still do it, even if not very well, so I can start building back up to being good at it again.
