I want to take up seiza

Unread postby surrealdeal » Wed Dec 11, 2013 1:10 pm

mostly so that I can kneel on cardboard outside during the winter and write stuff on my old thinkpad.

I can do it for like 20 minutes at a time now on just hardwood flooring, but it's exacerbating the ulcers in my legs.

Upon googling 'seiza' I realize that that is how I always sit, I've never found it comfortable to sit with legs crossed. I've sat like that since kindergarten...

I also run 80-100 miles per week.

I used to run 7 miles a night but then my jogging partner's husband beat me into a near coma...

But seriously, sitting in such a way is difficult and fitness is always worth it.
