Before this post gets going, I just have to say that the comments on yesterday’s post totally made my day. I love publishing things that bring some out of lurk-mode, make some think I could do that! (yes, you totally can. Chatarangas are your friends), and provoke a response from a family member I had no idea even “reads” blogs. HELLO! Good stuff.
In other news, yesterday was gorgeous. Today and tomorrow will follow suit, and I am thanking Denver for spoiling me with a spring-weather-teaser.
Our morning was a little cramped with car-business that needed tending, so by the time I was home, breakfast’d and ready to get going, it was late. And the sun was out. And I was totally okay with it all.
I chose Yoga first; I went to an hour of “Alignment Flow”, which I highly recommend! The teachers focus more on holding poses and getting every twist, stretch, and arm placement right where it should be. It helps your overall practice improve, and also makes you realize maybe that pose felt easier because you weren’t fully in it. A ha, now it burns, now I gotcha!
I proceeded to almost fall into a siestsa during Savasana; our teacher played the Ukulele! Sweet soft sound, almost put me out for the afternoon.
Instead of napping, I laced up the running shoes, put on my LS shirt and G. Ready for a few laps around the park, I was greeted with the above scene – blue sunny skies, an open trail, and a 1:30 p.m. run. YES, I’m in!
5 miles, 42:45 – refreshed, Warm and soaking in the rays.
Warm enough to cool-down/stretch in my tank? Denver, you’re good to me.
Have you tried an Alignment specific class?
This was my second round with that type of instruction, and again, highly recommended!
Is the sun showing its face for you yet? If not, come see me in Colorado. I’ll share.
