tuesday-Pure Barre in the am/ Bikram Yoga(Hot yoga) in the pm
You gguuuyyyss!!! I finally tried hot yoga with my friend Kim and it was seriously amazing! I can’t wait to do a whole review/tips for your first time. All I’ll say for now, is I’m definitely going back.
Yesterday J had preschool so while he was at preschool I went to Pure Barre. I still leave shaking. I love being able to try new things and experience new teachers. Having hot yoga on the same day was actually really good. It lengthened my muscles and really stretched them out.
I can’t express enough how important it is to cross train. I NEVER cross trained last year when I was running 5-6 miles a day. My body feels so much stronger and I just feel a lot healthier. I’m so glad I took this summer off from racing and just focused on listening to my body. If you haven’t found a new workout to try this winter(from my tips to staying healthy this winter) I hope you feel inspired now. Check out what’s near you and just try=)
More reasons why cross training is awesome, from Runners World(where I get all my advice;) :
Alternative forms of exercise have definite benefits: improved your fitness, injury prevention and rehabilitation, quicker recovery, and boredom busters. The trick is to approach cross-training as a runner. Runners have their obvious strengths: power, endurance, tenacity. But within those strengths lies the potential for weakness: quads that overpower our hamstrings, neglected upper bodies, and poor flexibility—qualities that could lead to problems.
After I picked J up from preschool we were both ready to eat lunch. I decided to make homemade salsa with my in laws garden tomatoes. It turned out pretty good, and it took me all of 5 min to make. I threw tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, teensy tiny bit of a jalepeno, olives, and salt into a blender and blended till chunky. I dipped a few chips in it along side my boiled egg and turkey.
This weekend we’re getting family pictures and I’m not doing so well on finding our outfits, but I did find some fall boots. Of course I found them at TJ Maxx for half price, score!
Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!
