1. The awesome gym I belong to is on the 2nd floor of a historic building. You know what opened on the first floor? A bakery. This morning’s run was filled with the scent of fresh bread and …..their signature cinnamon buns. I may have to bring nose plugs with me or learn to be a mouth breather.
2. Over the past month I have (finally) been incorporating yoga into my training. And love it. There is a hot yoga place near us so I have been going 1-2 times per week. I know there is a risk of over stretching in hot yoga so I am pretty careful to ensure I don’t try to be all yogini in it. And just sweat…a lot.
3. I didn’t like Wednesday night’s class. It was later (8pm) and I had had a brutally busy but successful day at work so I really just wanted to go and get a good sweat/stretch/mind clear out of the class. The guy who led the class was more ‘bootcampy’ in my opinion. Yes he was helpful as he spent time with people getting into their poses but that just meant we were holding the poses a lot longer. And we did planks, and other core work so along with him helping other the 60 min class was 80 min. I actually thought I was going to pass out as it was just so hot. That dude is off my list.
4. We are well into taper and I am still sane. I have done 2 yoga classes, 3 easy-ish runs and 2 weight workouts. Way less than usual but still keeping me sane for the resting to come next week.
Do you do Hot Yoga? Fan Yea or Nay?
