The sunny warm south Day 2,

Taking a break while on our bicycle ride along the Hollywood boardwalk. Nothing like being in an environment where you can sit outside in the morning, enjoying your coffee and the views in shorts and t-shirts without a hint of chill in the air at the end of January, while staring off into the Atlantic at the vast openness.

The routine for day two has a good amount of posture work with breathing. Great for relaxing and observing with just a little conditioning! Here’s the routine:

Day 2
• bicycle ride – 8 miles
• down dog – 5 breaths
• pigeon  – 5 breaths each side
• down dog – 5 breaths
• lunge → revolving lunge → pyramid – 5 breaths each element
• pigeon – 5 breaths each side
• down dog – 5 breaths
• squat – 5 breaths
• squat pistol prep (left leg then right leg) – 10x
• pistol squats (up to down left leg then right) – 10x
• pistol squats (left leg then right leg) – 10x
• standing straddle fold – 5 breaths
• pistol squats (left leg then right leg) – 10x
• standing straddle fold – 5 breaths
• pistol squats (left leg then right leg) – 10x
• shoulder release – 10 breaths

That’s it. Straight forward, basic movements. Don’t fret over getting everything right. Just do it slow and steady, watching your form and paying attention to the differences in symmetry between the sides.

Enjoy your night. We’re off to a dessert place named Jackson’s. Been here since 1958 and gives you really large servings of ice-cream. Good stuff to indulge in at 72° at 8:20p
