Happy Monday! Did y’all catch the Finals last night?
Being a Die Hard Mavs fan, it was REALLY hard to go for either team. But, I’m loyal to Texas now, so Spurs it was.
Plus, that whole “championship DNA” byte really started getting on my nerves. Glad they’re sidelined ’til next year!
And Congrats Spurs! Valid until Opening Tip October 2014
This morning, I woke up with a hankering to get outdoors! I started gearing up to drive to
the city park and run a few miles before the kids got going.
Then I remembered my truck is getting a new compressor and I have no life car.
So, I treated myself to a Spark, and when for a short stroll instead…
Back home and not much of an appetite. Boo. So, I drowned my sorrows in this
half melted here Quest Bar I thought I’d eat in route but didn’t.
Speaking of halfway, over the hump for June’s Yoga Challenges!!
But first, I got in about an hour of exclusive yoga stretches. Sure, the asanas are cool and
do wonders for the internal body but there is more to Yoga than just poses.
A CPT/ Yoga teacher I follow on Instagram know said (before I ever began yoga)
“Muscles need to be intensely stretched daily”.
At the time I waved it off because it was not what I wanted to hear sounded like it involved yoga,
and I was just not feeling that.
However, it has less to do with yoga and more to do with flexibility, toning, and strengthening of the muscles.
I’m sold now, as you can see, and have started incorporating more and more stretching before I move on
to the’ Flow of the Day’ and my daily summer challenges.
All the stretchy stuff is perfect timing because today’s challenge really stretched my limits legs…
~~Day 16 ~~
Started out with Baddha Konasana, or Cobbler’s Pose after my stretching to get my hammies ready.
They are massive and always tight.
Challenge Poses today: Utthita Parsvakonasana (Extended Side Angle)
& Dwi Pada Koundinyasana (Side Crow)
Are those my LINES of Energy?
I literally held that last asana for 4.3 seconds…or 2 breaths. Work to do, yet!
I was also in awe of a Yogi I follow on Instagram and her rendition
of Baddha Trikonasana (Triangle Pose) was so beautiful, I had to imitate.
Now to catch up on some OITNB and H2O… as best I can
considering I ate all my cheddar popcorn here chatting it up with y’all Thursday…
But, I’ll live… I guess… kind of.
I’ll catch up with y’all Later 🙂
Question: Do your run/workout close to home or do you have a favorite spot a drive away?
