Well we have all survived the first week of January right? Although it has been busy I feel as though I am staying on track with my goals thus far, drink more water and stick with programs or challenges I choose. I managed to complete the Runners Love Yoga Backbend Challenge and *gulp* even posted pictures of it. This was a huge step for me, usually any pictures I post consist of candid snaps of my running shoes or inspiring outdoor pictures. I will admit that I did edit some of them to make myself a little more comfortable, but ultimately I finished the challenge right?!
And on to another yoga challenge... Yoga with Adrienes 31 Day Yoga Revolution! I have completed day 1-7 and will partake in day 8 this evening. I have to admit that I am extremely grateful for the fact that today is a Yin Yoga or restorative day! If you haven't yet, check out the program at http://yogawithadriene.com/revolution-31-days-of-yoga/
In addition to the YWA Revolution I was able to complete 4 miles this morning with the running group that meets at our local running store. Although it was literally 0 degrees out we had a good turn out (the usuals) and I managed to not under or over dress. My running buddy was patient and slowed down her long run (she's training for a half marathon in early spring) so I could join her. What's the coldest weather you have run in? I can't say today was the coldest I have ever run in, but it is the coldest in recent memory!
After completing the run I showered quickly and zipped over to the yoga studio for yoga class designed specifically for runners! After an amazing class (in which I was able to hold eight angle pose for the first time!) I was done for the day! The yogi that teaches the class is wonderful and she recently invited me to join her Ragnar team! I am both extremely excited and nervous. Ragnar advice anyone?!?!
