Tai Chi Y4D169: Ooops

I did a short but great set this morning.  I did both qi gong forms, and two tai chi forms, and 25 push-ups.  But the second tai chi form took about 35 minutes all by itself, and I ran out of time this morning. 48 more words

Today is the first day of school.  I did two tai chi forms, 20 push-ups, both qi gong forms, and then ran out of time to work before I need to be in the shower to get ready for the day. 9 more words

Tai Chi Y4D166: Complicated Morning

This morning I woke up, and got right into some complicated work.  I didn’t get going on tai chi until nearly noon… and by then it was clear that the moment for deep or heavy work today had pretty much passed. 29 more words

Tai Chi Y4D165: What Did I Do?

I have very little idea what I did today.  I mean, I know that I did 30 push-ups.  They were … not easy, but not impossible, either, even at the end. 60 more words

Tai Chi Y4D164: Typical Set

I did a typical set today: two qi gong forms, eight tai chi forms, twenty-five push-ups.  It took 32 minutes. I think I’m now at the point where I can start slowing down my tai chi forms, and as I get slower with them, I’ll find the time it takes me to do my morning tai chi will lengthen.

That’s the hope, anyway.
