** I'm still riding the "I LOVE RUNNING" wave. It's almost getting to the ridiculous phase. I was actually pretty excited when I woke up at 5am for my tempo run. gag. gag.
** Speaking of tempo runs... besides easy runs and bumping up my mileage, tempo runs (at kinda/sorta estimated marathon pace) are my weekly "workout" runs. I'm not going to lie, breaking up with interval training was kinda hard, but it's just a BREAK. (It's not you, it's me). We will be back together soon enough. (And when it's a gazillion degrees outsides).
** Blogging may be a little light in the upcoming weeks... at least until I dig my way out of this...
Allow me to introduce you to my "to do list."
** I had a spectacular long run last weekend with some of my favorite running pals. But goddamn I sweated wayyyy too much for a mid-March run.
** It's time to start thinking about what races I want to do in the fall... I'm probably looking at targeting the Marathon distance in November/December. If anyone has any good suggestions, let me know.
** Since work is kinda busy right now, I'm trying to come up with ways to sneak in some extra yoga. Last week I did the standing part of the Primary Series at home. And that worked pretty well. This week, I decided to try and take a lunchtime class. Bwhahahahaha. FAIL. I mean, the class was fine. But, holy mother of god, was it a sweat fest! I assumed that since it was a "lunchtime" class, that there would be people there on their lunch breaks, looking for a good hour of stretching, chillaxing, and zen-ing out. Um. No. It was just a bunch of Stay at Home Moms who said they were looking to "SWEAT." Crap. I haven't sweated that much in a yoga class (or running) in a long time.
** Despite not really being able to fit in my optimum 3-4 yoga classes every week, my practice is going really, really well. My headstand and wheel poses are improving every week. I no longer have to drop to my knees for chaturangas (yoga pushups). My chest, shoulders and back have opened up significantly over the past 6 months or so and I am able to get into some pretty sweet binds:
Like, Marichyasana C!
** Hamstring poses? Yeah, they still totally suck.
