Between last night and this morning, I felt like I had signed up for a Running/Yoga Duathalon!
I was weary yesterday on whether I should run or not as I typically take two days off after a long run.
But when the mood strikes, you go with it!
I wanted to take it easy so I opted to go garminless and ended up doing 4 miles in around 43 minutes.
Which tells me that I ran faster than I meant to. Sometimes running sans garmin I actually go faster because I have no idea how fast I am really going.
But what I was really in the mood for was a good yoga sesh!
It had been far too long since I hit up a yoga class and now that we are coming down to the wire on marathon training I need to be in tip-top shape. That means relaxed and stretched out.
I did a quick changeroo and quickly went from runner to yogi in a matter of minutes. Then jumped into my car to hit up a beginners yoga class.
I was happy to see my mom at yoga class last night. She literally hopped off a plane and jumped in the car to meet me down there. Which is funny to me because she had just come home from a week-long yoga festival in California.
Honestly I wish had been better about keeping up with my yoga during this whole training. It felt so good to stretch out my hip flexors. I am going to bring it back people! Bringing back the yoga action in my life!
And then it’s as if I didn’t have enough fun last night, I met up with my morning running buddy and fellow Dirty Dasher for a quickie run at 5:45 am this morning.
It was dark for our WHOLE run, please note the headlamp! 🙂
Brooke and I have not been able to meet for our morning runs the past few weeks, so were excited to get out there today in preparation for our Mud Run coming up on Saturday!!
Question: What does one wear for a mud run? (obviously clothes that I don’t care too much about) But seriously, looking at some of these pictures I am starting to wonder what we are getting ourselves into! Don’t be fooled though, I am super AMPED to get down and dirty. Just a weeee bit nervous.
Whew! I am getting tired just by recapping all of the runYOGArun shenanigans.
To celebrate all the good that is happening around here at Destination 26.2, you should swing back by tomorrow morning for a great giveaway! 😉
