This morning my workout was a 4.5 mile run. I intended for it to be 4 miles, but I miscalculated. Instead of using map my run I decided today I would count my miles by counting street blocks, however I didn’t realize that in the area I am in not every block is the same length until the middle of my run. Oh well, an extra half mile never hurt anybody 🙂
I am dog sitting for the family I nanny for, and I woke up a little later than expected. Because of this breakfast was a quick Bora Bora bar grabbed on my way out the door. It tasted good and it was quick and easy.
Yoga and Flexibility
I love fitness and trying and teaching new classes, but one thing that I have never truly caught onto was yoga. I have taken 2 classes in my life (one being a couple of weeks ago), and attempted to do one video. This is something I need to overcome. Part of my hesitation and sometimes frustration is my lack of flexibility. When I used to think yoga, I thought that you basically had to bend into a pretzel to find any sort of benefit from the activity. When I took my most recent yoga class, I realized that flexibility is not the determining factor in whether or not you will excel in yoga. In fact, a non-flexbible person may benefit from yoga even more because it feels like one giant stretch session!
I realized that it is more about stretching your body where it is natural to stretch and that everybody is different. Simply because I can’t touch my toes does not mean that I will not excel or benefit from the practice of yoga. It is my goal to do a little yoga everyday, to ease myself into it, and enjoy the relaxation of the activity rather than wish I were running around a million miles a minute. Don’t worry…I will keep you updated on my progress!
P.S. Tonight is my first night at my new retail job and I will be posting my work outfit selection!
