I Love Yoga

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

So, after a week of feeling awful, exhausted, and sore, I finally decided to do some yoga. I've missed my usual class for the last 2 weeks and decided that a little more stretching would be helpful, and I was so grumpy this morning I knew I needed to do something to relax.

I had a million other things to do this morning, but I told myself to stop making excuses and popped in my Biggest Loser Yoga dvd. Half an hour later I was calmer, my muscles felt good, and my knee didn't hurt. My legs amazed me. I felt great. I could have gone for a run today and felt fine.

I'm apparently not stretching enough after my runs, and I need to start doing yoga daily. I think it will be key to surviving the last weeks of training. My husband is looking into whether our insurance covers massage, too. Hooray for loose, relaxed muscles! I feel like myself again. emoticon

    My yoga class was great today. I fear we'll have an awful sub again on Thursday, so I think I might skip it and do something else. I didn't even know Biggest Loser had a yoga DVD!

    Sometimes my stretching lasts longer than my workout, no lie!
