A week of silence with eyes lowered? Seven to ten hours of sitting zazen/day? Bring it, baby!
Two hours of rigorous asana? What else you got for me?

But Lord Almighty if my spirit wasn't just about broken with these three inches (302 sts/row) of K1 P1 ribbing. It must be some kind of madness that would compel a designer to create such a thing.
As a firm believer in Elizabeth Zimmerman's mandate on ribbing: continue until you can't take it any more, I would say that this went Too Far.
