Inspired by reading about Heather’s
yoga journey, I decided to give yoga a shot after a 3ish
. I’d taken yoga for about a year and LOVED it; however, the $$ factor came into play when I started to save for my house. I decided to do a few walk-in classes at a studio close to where I live, just to test the waters again. I reallyreally
want to do Bikram
, however, I don’t think it’s offered where I live (we always get things about 5 years behind everyone else, so….I’m expecting it to come in the next 3 years). lol
. Also, in coming back from my injury I made my body a promise: I resolved to take better care of my body to prevent further injury, and that means more varied workouts (not JUST running!), more stretching, and YOGA.
The class I went to was a basic Hatha/Vinyasa class. I absolutely loved the teacher – she was incredibly sweet and SO ripped! I felt surprisingly strong in most of the poses (thanks, Jill) and left feeling verrrrrry refreshed. Although I love my cardio, I love the peaceful feeling I get after leaving yoga.
My 15-K is tomorrow – yay! The forecast says it will be 61 and sunny. Although I’d prefer clouds (for running only!), I am SO glad it’s going to be dry. I’m a bit nervous, but my goal is to finish in under 80 minutes. Hopefully I can do it, but more importantly I don’t want to push myself too hard and get hurt.
