Good Morning and Happy Thursday all.
Today is my first day back in the real world, and first day at work as Mrs. Ashley Jara. While it’s kind of a bummer to be returning to work (duhh), it had to happen eventually so I’m trying to take it in stride :).
I decided last night that a yoga class would be the perfect way to reset from vacation, physically and mentally. I’ve actually been pretty active (although I haven’t gotten in a long enough run in the past 2 weeks. . . but I’ll work on that) during the wedding vacay, so I knew a class would do the body good.
So — this morning I got myself out of bed at 600 AM, even though it’s my late start day, to make it to Root Yoga and a Vinyasa 1/2 class.
Workout of the Day: 75 minute Root Yoga Vinyasa Class
The class was actually the first Thursday morning vinyasa class, and it was instructed by the same teacher who’s class I previously took that primarily teachers Forrest.
Because of that, I actually thought the class was a good mix of vinyasa and forrest, and was the perfect way for me to wake up my mind and body.
I felt like she worked quite a bit on the hips and shoulders, which is EXACTLY what this little runner needed. While I hardly broke a sweat, I know this class worked me just right and will be thanking me for it for the next few days.
The yoga was made even more southing by the rain that Denver continues to be slammed with.
The Platte River is completely swollen and flowing frighteningly fast, but was a very cool sight on my rainy walk home.
So now, it’s just before 820 and I don’t have to be to work until 10. I’m going to enjoy the rest of my coffee, and possibly hang out with my favorite 8 minute friends for a little muscle action before work ;).
But, before I leave you, I of course have to share my most resent favorite wedding photo.
Awwwwe happy couple :).
Question of the day: What’s the best way you know to reset and head back to reality after an awesome vacation?
