30 Days of Yoga

Sunday, May 22, 2011

Last June I did a personal challenge... 30 days of yoga. It had a tremendously positive impact. I actually missed 2 days due to having a wisdom tooth removed (and not being allowed to fold forward is a wee bit of a problem for yoga...) I have been really slacking on my yoga lately in favor of more intense strength training. It's actually been about a month since I've been to a class. That's the longest by far I've gone without it since I started doing yoga last January!! I miss it and it does me so much good so I've decided I'm going to do the same challenge this June.

I thought "Maybe I'm crazy... I formally start triathlon training in June!" but last year I started marathon training the very same weekend so I can definitely handle it. It will get me back into the habit and keep me sane and balanced while I am doing my more intense training. There's a yoga studio near my house, and I recently bought a groupon deal to a studio near my work. I'm actually going to HAVE to get into a morning workout routine in the summer (otherwise it gets too hot to run) so I figure starting out my morning with yoga will be great. A new hot yoga studio opened up about a mile away. I'm going to make it to 2-3 of those classes a week, provided my face doesn't start breaking out again. I do really miss it.

I'll be making up a training schedule plan for this soon... I'll need to be pretty diligent about sticking with a schedule when I've got so much going on. My workouts need to be staggered appropriately.

TODAY though I am going to a yoga class. and I'm going to try to make it to 2 more this week too. I wont be starting on my every day kick but I see NO reason to wait until June to do a class!

    Girlie you are a WARRIOR! I love it! I read about what you do and I am SO inspired. The yoga along with your TRI training sounds like a lot, but you can handle it. I know it's been months since the last time I did yoga, but I always feel amazing when I am done. Go for it!

    That sounds great. I have been to scared to do yoga in a class. I have a yoga video and did that, and did feel somewhat silly. I have yet to try a class because I'm just not sure if the class could handle me (since I have a horrible lack of balance! LOL). Good luck. I know you will do great!!

    That sounds awesome! the groupon coupons do rock! When my regular gym pass expires in two weeks, I will have a month's open pass to the superposh gym and swimming pool at the Marriott Hotel. And it will be 2,5 times cheaper than my regular gym! I just bought the coupon last week and am very excited about keep a two month streak of great exercise.

Good luck on your yoga challenge! I will be crossing my fingers for you in June!
