Today is my video review. The butterflies in my stomach are flapping, flapping, flapping.
I have been practicing my “script” for this video-taped yoga practice for about the last month. I have the first 30 minutes of the 90-minute practice. It’s well rehearsed. I should feel super confident.
But I am anxious. More nervous than excited. (Really nervous, actually, since I ran over 30 minutes during this morning’s run-through in my living room. Yikes.)
I haven’t felt this sort of anxious adrenaline since my days as a competitive gymnast. But, this isn’t so terribly unlike those competition days …
As a gymnast, I practiced routine after routine in the gym without an audience of judges — in the hopes that I’d “stick” it in competition, when it truly counted. The same goes for today. I’ve practiced and practiced. Now, can I “stick” it?
