the human pretzel

i'm a little sore this morning, but i think it's from a more intense yoga workout yesterday and not my massage hour-long lotion application. i tried out a longer, more advanced workout than normal which had a ton of upper body work/poses. such as this one:yeah i'm pretty sure i'll never pull that one off. so i hung out in plank pose and chaturanga dandasana (below) until homegirl moved along out of the pretzel twist to something i could manage.


i went out for a "long" run this morning, as in 7 whole miles. it was nothing spectacular, just slow (which was a little depressing) but it was nice to get out and run. it's been weird only running 4 days this week. later today i shall soak up some time in the hot tub, which will hopefully put my legs in a better mood (and give my shoulders/back relief from yesterday's yoga).

week in review (1/19 - 1/25):
total miles: 21.90 (all super easy slow pace)
time spent running: ~3 hr 30 min
avg hr: 143
abs & yoga: 3 ab days, 2 yoga
off days: 3, all scheduled

  2. Okay...that first pose CRACKED me up. There will NEVER be a time I could ever do that. I'm SURE of it!

    I love yoga.

  3. I have practiced yoga for years, but would be permanetly damaged in undescribable ways if I ever attempted that first pose!

  7. I have seen some scary yoga poses, but that one is by far the scariest.

    I have been thinking about finding a beginner yoga program. I have heard it really helps runners.

  8. I need to get back into yoga...felt super toned when I went (all of those 3 times).

    You deserve some rest - take it easy for awhile!

  10. Yeah, no one should really be able to do that first pose. That's just...just scary!

  11. I think my least favorite part about training is having to rest after a big race. Blah!

  12. Nice work on the yoga. That first pose is pretty nuts. I'd hang out in plank too. That's enough of a workout for me.
