Monday: 4 mile treadmill run (10:14 p/m) + yoga (30 mins)
Oy I did not want to get up this morning. But I did, so yay.
When I got home, I was supposed to do day 11 (restorative yoga), but I didn't feel like it. This is why I never stick with the challenge, and I think it's a good thing - because I feel like I need a certain practice and I know the one I'm 'supposed' to do isn't it. So I did day 15 (non stop standing flow) which was good. I do all the videos all over the place, I feel like it doesn't matter what order I do them in. I also did about 15 minutes of practicing crow pose (good) and headstand (not really).
Tuesday: yoga (30 mins)
I didn't get up this morning. Gosh darn it Kristen. I was supposed to do lower body.
When I got home I did the day 13 (lower back & hip opening) + day 14 (yoga for runners!). Day 14 is my favourite and one I have done a thousand times. Love love love love it.
Wednesday: yoga (45 mins)
Again, I didn't get up. I didn't sleep well, and I pulled something in my neck while I was asleep. I felt it when I did it, like a cramp, but it didn't go away when I woke up. When I got to work I did day 26, yoga for the office. I've never done it before but I thought it would help my neck. It didn't really, so I searched for some more and found this one by Adriene. It has most of the same moves, but at the start it has some neck rolling and whatnot that really helped. I know I could have done that on my own, but I need guidance sometimes. Adriene's video is also 6 or 7 minutes where Erin's is like 10 or 11. Adriene's has words on the screen and no talking which is good because sometimes I can't use my speakers at work. I really liked Adriene's and it's discrete enough that I could do it every day if I wanted to. Which I just might.
When I got home I did day 16 (learning the splits hahahaha) + yoga for hangovers. I didn't have a hangover but I really really enjoyed this video the other week so I felt like doing it again.
Thursday: yoga (45 mins)
I did get up this morning.. but I didn't feel like going to the gym. Instead, I did day 23 (neck & upper back because my neck is still sore) + day 2 (chest & shoulders). When I got home, I did day 29 (yoga for better sleep) and slept like a baby or a person who sleeps really well. It was magical.
Friday: 3 mile treadmill run (10:24 p/m) + yoga (15 mins)
Hey Friday. I woke up at 5am and couldn't get back to sleep, so I went to the gym for an easy run, went back home to get ready for work. Normally I go straight from the gym but I would have been at work before the building even opened if I did that.
When I got home, I did day 3 (for posture) and then a whole lotta nothing.
Saturday: 6 miles outside run (9:46 p/m) + yoga (15 mins)
It basically rained all week but today was beautiful. I ran with my garmin and that's it. Beautiful. KC and I were so busy all day that I managed to squeeze in 15 minutes of random yoga before bed.
Sunday: 3 mile run (9:34 p/m) + yoga (15 mins)
I didn't wake up until 10 minutes before I would have had to leave.. so I missed class again. Maybe Sunday isn't the best choice for me, but I want it to be. We'll see. After a big breakfast and more work around the house, I went for a quick run (garmin only, such a good feeling) and did my yoga for runners video afterwards.
Yoga 7 / 195 minutes
Running 4 / 16 miles
- The instagram challenge we've been doing is really helpful. Many of my only yoga days could have easily been complete rest (lazy) days but because I change into my gear for the photo / video, it doesn't take much for me to just do some actual yoga.
- My next race is in June, but it's a colour run so it's not even a 'real race', meaning it's just for fun. For the first time in ages, I don't have a race planned, so I have zero pressure. I feel like I am doing what I want, when I want and I'm enjoying it.
- This week sucked for getting up because KC was on spring break. I felt tired all week and I stayed up too late too many times. It felt like another off week for no reason. I'm not complaining or anything, just noting.
Run more, do both strength workouts, yoga every damn day (and go to a bloody class, Kristen).
Linking up with Holly.
