DOWN dog! DOWN!

Inspired by reading about Heather's yoga journey, I decided to give yoga a shot after a 3ish year sabbatical. 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.

TGIF!

Best of luck with the 15-K. I am sure you will do fabulous! I go through yoga phases myself...die hard for awhile and then nothing.
