Back on the Yoga Bandwagon

I had this weird urge to go to yoga tonight. And who am I to fight urges? Especially when they relate to working out (I usually DREAD working out, but never regret it).

So I packed up my yoga mat and headed to my local gym for a 7pm basic class. It was very simple, but felt really good. My body feels a lot more relaxed and stretched out. I can’t even remember the last time I did yoga but I remember it being a lot harder. I think all the BodyPumping has made me stronger!

I usually take Wednesdays as rest days, but I’m thinking yoga might be just what the doctor ordered.

Speaking of doctor’s, my stomach has been acting all kinds of crazy. Lately I haven’t been able to digest veggies. Like, total TMI, but they aren’t really breaking down if ya know what I mean. I did a little Googling and I might not be chewing enough. Weird. Let’s hope it’s just that and not my stomach flat out rejecting veggies.

And now I leave you with my creepy namaste…

The Flow

Thanks to some nasty weather and my immense fear of southern drivers in a snow/ice storm, I decided to stay clear of the gym this evening. I will get my 30 minute tempo run in tomorrow after volleyball (I play on a co-ed rec league and it’s awesome).

To avoid feeling like a total waste of space I decided to give yoga a try on my own. I enjoy doing it and I like feeling all stretched out at the end of it. Since I don’t know anything about yoga, I did what any self respecting girl would do and hopped on YouTube. I typed in Yoga 30 Minutes and found this little gem.

It was super basic but still enough to bring my heart rate up a little bit. I feel pretty stretched and hope that somehow this will ultimately help me run a little better.

Happy hump day and Namaste.

I’m so ZEN.
