One of the things I’ve been doing outside of (not) running is flow yoga. I’ve been trying to keep consistent attendance at the local yoga studio near the office. Fortunately one of my coworkers is there to keep me motivated/accountable. Plus I paid for a 10-class card, so I have to use it.
Last night was a return to exercise after a week of nothing. Class was tough. While I go to the same night class, the instructor changes it up at every time. Last night wasn’t any different. There’s an asana where you’re on your hands and knees. Then you lift your right leg out and extend it and then you lift your right arm up to the sky. Then you look up and twist back so you’re stacking your hips and balancing on your left knee and left hand. THEN you bend your lifted right leg and grab your leg with your right arm and balance. Let’s just say I trembled a lot and did some falling.
My coworker is a rockstar. She can also do this reverse back bend. Amazing.
I’m glad I’m taking this type of yoga. It’s pretty damn challenging. I also like that the room is warm; it’s not as hot as bikram yoga, but the room is comfortably on the warm side.
Other updates on fitness… I bought a Yelp Deal for the Bar Method in Pasadena. In addition, I still have to use my class card for Cardio Barre. Did you see the Groupon today!!?? It’s for Cardio Barre!
Update on running – the one other half marathon I had wanted to sign up for is sold out. The Disneyland Half Marathon would have been stellar – I could have gotten the Coast-to-Coast medal. But I was too late. On to other races….
