There's a run on yoga mats at Go Sport at République. This strikes me as really odd. How can somewhere which is supposed to stock yoga mats not have yoga mats?
I didn't stick around to ask. Actually I wasn't even given the chance to enquire. The assistant told me they'd be in next week and off he went into a store room.
Well next week beginning of the week? Next week end of the week? Next week is quite a long stretch.
So my brilliant plan to take a mat to London has been scuppered. I was thinking of going down to Les Halles to see if they had it there. But I didn't have that kind of time.
Monday's little practise in London will have to be done on the cold hard floor.
It will doubtless make me appreciate the plush mat I have for Paris.
But while I was unable to splash out on a mat, I was able to buy a pair of swimming goggles.
They're UV and look sleek. I think I'll go faster just wearing them;
They had a list by the goggles stand detailing usage.
For the leisure specs, there were a couple of lithe adolescents seemingly at the shallow end of a municipal pool.
But the picture for the frequent usage/training glasses showed the gleaming white teeth emerging from an elite jaw.
Well I had to buy the Speedos. It would have been wrong not to have bought them.
Though I suspect I am probably too leisurely in the pool for the all action types.
That's what makes yoga so appealing. You go at your own speed. One om per hour.
