Jaipur Journals- Udham Singh Nagar Dairies

I woke up at 5.11, trying to get out of bed with a lot of pains. These too will pass away, I told myself and got ready to get onto the ground with Narasimha a.k.a Mr.Sim. "Today, let's do the same thing, 10 rounds of running and 10 rounds of L-hanging' he shared. 

Yesterday, we did three exercises and today, it's two. "That's it, Only these two exercises, right?" I confirmed. "Yeah, staying at L-Hang for one minute is a big achievement. Let's do it for 20 seconds, he explained."

No big deal, I thought to myself. As I finished my first round and approached the bar, I couldn't even lift my legs straight and hang still. I could only swing holding the rail. It was tough. 

Sim was equanimous about it, he said, it's okay, just hang in there and hold tight, he encouraged. Twenty minutes of work out, I was panting. During the workout, the act of looking at the dried leaves, fallen leaves and a dried tree amidst the green trees, kept me continuing. Also, the sunrise and moon set. It's heartening to start the day with the sight of moon and also the sunrise.
