1) We had our monthly meeting at lululemon today; with a busy schedule up ahead, I chose to run to/from to get my daily sweat and quick workout in! Luckily I work at a place that expects us to 1) show up in exercise clothes and 2) sweat once a day. Not a bad deal, and not a bad start to my day! One thing I’ve completely embraced over the last month is my commute-on-foot – walking, riding or running.
2) On the run front, I finally feel like a “regular” at the weekly Tuesday night run. I happened to find a buddy there who meets me more often, and does yoga with me too (bonus!), that is a little on the faster side. She’s right around the speed the friend, Kate, from DC ran – keeping up with a faster RB is the best kind of speedwork. With conversation flowing, my mind is usually off the fact that it feels a little too fast. Once we’re done, I’m happy with a successful run and an effort to get some speed back.
3) After looking over my November RW log, it’s official: I’m a yogi. I’ll own it. I went to a Yoga class at least twice per week, if not more. I also tested out Bob Harper’s new “Yoga For Warriors” DVD, and let it kick my butt for 4 days in a row. Ouch.
I’m a regular at my favorite studio, and have loved every class with every new teacher. Last night, Luke & I went for a Hatha Fusion class. What’s Hatha? I wondered, too. Turns out it’s very slow and stretchy. We held each pose for at least 3-5 breaths, and laid in Shavasana long enough for me to contemplate a nap.
It was awesome.
In light of this Yoga movement, Sassy’s timing couldn’t be better:
25 Day Yoga Challenge
Get your pose on – Anything counts! Choose a podcast, go to a class, do 10 minutes of your own choice poses, focus on one pose, or do go to Yogadownload.com and choose your Om time.
My Hatha class last night started things off; today I did 10 minutes of a Dave Farmar podcast (who happens to be a local teacher and one of our good friends at lululemon!) after my commute-meeting-run.
