Mixing it up
I’ve decided to give Yoga a chance. I’ve tried it a couple times before but it just wasn’t the right time or place. In an effort to x-train for the 1/2 marathon in May I’ve added Yoga and Pilates to my current exercise regimen. Much to my surprise I am loving Yoga. The stretches feel so good! Funny thing, though, all my life I’ve been told by people shorter than I that I don’t take full advantage of my long legs and that I “should” be able to be longer and stretch deeper because of them. This Yoga instructor feels the same way. Ouch!
I’m also trying to focus on my breathing as a means to concentrate and relax. I’m taking it out of Yoga class and applying it to situations where I could use a little bit of both.
