I am a yoga FIEND right now yall.


Ohmmmmmmmmm. 🙂

Little old secret about this lady.  I was kind of obsessed with yoga for a very long time.  Core Power Yoga and I had regular date nights 5-6 nights a week.  But eventually I grew sick of doing the same routines (CPY does offers a TON of classes on their schedules, which is awesome, but they offer limited class options.  So it gets mundane after a year or so of 5 days a week), and that is actually when I found running.  Not a bad trade off, right?

I have been doing yoga daily for the past few weeks, and it has definitely brought back fond memories of my yogi days.  Again — it’s all about balance during this taper week, and yoga has been a god send.

This afternoon?  I had a date with Jillian and her yoga meltdown.    The weather this afternoon was beautiful so I was able to enjoy some fresh air doing it as well.

To be completely honest with you all — I was all about doing it outside because it was a little cooler and I didn’t want to sweat because I was NOT about to shower again before picking up Zach.  Hence the sports bra.  Man Zach is a lucky man . . . 


Another sandwich on the energy bread loaf from Safeway.

This evening, with a beat salad that I made by just slicing the beat, and baking it in tin foil with some balsamic vinaigrette and salt for 30 minutes.

And of course, turkey, cheddar, and raspberry spread with some greens.

And you know I had some chex mix.  Come on.

Now I just have to wait for Zach to get home so I can eat that apple pie.  I may or may not have gotten gelato as well…you know.

In the mean time. . . LETS GO CARDINALS

Question of the Afternoon:  Do you like yoga?  Ever DONE yoga?

  1. ohhhhh yoga, that elusive temptress i never seem to be able to catch. i don’t even do it and i have a love/hate relationship with the very idea of it…and as you know, i continually say i’m going to start. but i just love the hurt so good burn of circuit training and boot camps and long hard runs that i don’t seem to “have time” (aka “make time) for yoga. but i will! soon. 🙂

  2. I have a love-hate relationship with yoga. I took a normal yoga last YEARS ago and it was okay. Then I went back to it during my first pregnancy and LOVED it! I did it again with baby #2 but not as much and have a few DVD’s at home that I throw in every so often.
    I’d love to try hot yoga some day!

  3. I LOVE yoga. I’ve been practicing for almost 6 years, currently try to get to 2 hot studio classes a week, and hope to attend teacher training next year. I think it’s one of the best crosstrain activities that a runner can do!
