30 days of yoga: Day 3 - parachute pants

Three classes down - heck, that's 10 percent of my challenge nailed, if my incredibly poor maths skills don't betray me once again.

So, another day, another new pair of shorts to break in. Today's were some Puma running shorts which weren't quite as light as yesterday's wearable-air Nikes, but still did the job more than adequately. Somewhat bizarrely, though, they're even more sweat resistant than the Nikes, to the point that I began to wonder at one point if they'd been coated in the same stuff that makes water run off ducks' backs; my sweat was just flowing off them, a bit like I was in the midst of peeing myself rather energetically.

On top of that, if I sat down on my heels rather too vigorously in the upright postures of the floor series they inflated slightly at the front, basically so … well, look, I'm enjoying my yoga challenge, but not THAT much, if you catch my drift.

As a result there was rather a lot of smoothing down done throughout class. Still, they were cheap and they cover my gentlemanly bits well enough, so I shan't complain too much.

Roll on day four.

Now, for scientific reasons entirely, I would love to see that.

It's like this girl at work I call Miss Teflon because work just doesn't stick to her.
