I had my second yoga class this week and the experience was quite different from last week. I was able to make it through the sun salutations without breaking a sweat, although I was comfortably warm as was expected. We then did the warrior poses like last class, and I was able to make it through the whole set of sequences without having to stop. My arms felt tired, but not exhausted and shaky like last time. A few poses later and we were back to side planks. I tried to lean on my scraped up elbow, but wasn't able to without pain. So I did the side plank from my hand and was able to hold the pose for the whole duration. We switched sides and since I was successful doing the side plank from my hand on the one side, I had to do the same on the other side.
At the end of the class I was tired, but not exhausted like last class. My obliques were sore the next day, and my shoulders were a little achy, but again, not like after last class. So, I think it's safe to say that I've made improvement, and I look forward to next class.
