Rest Day. Don't you just love a well earned rest day? I certainly do!
|Guess what? We got some snow today!!|
RLRF- Long Run:
I was able to run down into the new Chinese Garden area of Reconciliation Park which was really pretty. I snapped a few photos and headed back to finish up my run. My mile times- 8:55, 8:32, 8:50, 8:53, 8:55. Not too shabby for running by "feel" for a total time of 44:08 and an average pace of 8:49!
|Isn't it pretty?|
X2- Yoga- After my run I headed home for a nice yoga session. I shed a few layers, cranked up the heat in my house and pushed play on the DVD player. I took yoga classes at my gym once a week for about a year and a half so I do know a lot of the basic yoga poses which is helpful for this workout. Yoga makes me happy- I love how it stretches and challenges my muscles and is just such a comforting workout. This DVD is very basic yet challenging at the same time and I am interested to see how I improve after I do it a few times. Total time- 68 minutes
I have been playing on an indoor coed soccer team for about 2 years now, and although I had never played soccer in my life before this I am really enjoying it. Our games are generally on Friday nights and once in a while they are on Saturdays. This time our game was at 8pm and we were offered the chance to play an "extra" half so we took the opportunity. Each half is 24 minutes so that is a total of 72 minutes of soccer playing to finish off my day! We lost the game, but had a lot of fun plus it was our first game in almost a month.
|Warming up with some squats|
|Supposed to be lowering down onto my elbows and then pushing back up here. |
I kind of almost can do it. Once. And I need to lower my booty a bit.
|Hello hamstrings, yes I feel you crying. We are almost done!|
|These photos are fromt the warm up of the Power and Balance DVD. |
I promise I change my clothes each time I workout!
|Hurts so good|
|This move is called the "crawly crab". The first time I heard him say it |
I thought he said the "holy crap" which is pretty accurate!
