Our legs were attacked yesterday during the Ryders class, in form of 500 lunges and Step-ups (which is nearly impossible, but we’re all still alive), along with some seat-less riding squat repeats (isolating the quads & hips, no bike movement allowed!). Needless to say, I owed those muscles a little TLC.
Right before I called it a night, I rolled out the yoga mat and put in my 10 minutes for the day. My muscles tend to agree with flexibility much more by the end of the day (vs the early morning), and were all about a few forward folds, sun salutations, vinyasas and down-dogs. I finally feel that flexilibity coming back, slowly but surely. My hands could reach the ground (fold); my heels weren’t 5 inches off of it (downward dog).
I’ve only laced up the running shoes once this week, as I contemplate what the next 16 will look like. Yup, it’s training time again!
I’m signed up for MCM, and couldn’t have been more excited to get that confirmation screen shot:
But let’s be honest, it’s just an excuse to run with these people again:
As some “things” (oh, life) have come up in the past few months, I’m not 100% sure that I’ll be toeing that MCM starting line. But I do know that it’s worth trying to get there, and worth a few extra miles on every Saturday morning from here on out.
Yoga is creeping in right when I need it, and my friend, running, is itching to get the same amount of attention.
It’s that time of Summer – who else is lacing up for the Fall race season?
