Spinach makes soup green.

What's your daily warm up / cool down routine?

1000 straight? Lolli Pop Loop? A few times the observatory? How about the cool down?

200 head up breast stroke? 50m walk back? Waterfront through town? What about a few loops barefoot at Jack Wallace?

It happens again and again throughout our day. From class to class, practice to practice, job to job, we repeat the power up power down process. Even within each practice we experience our power up power down process.

Minute to minute, set to set, moment to moment, we power up our focus, and power up the body. We practice the practice, and begin our power down process.

For the amount of practice, there sure is a lot of power up power down process. It must be an important process.

Time for a vegetable soup power down.

Rest well.
