Hola Hip Hip Huggers!
Can I just say, the weather here this week has been fantastic!
So nice, we spontaneously took the kiddos to Hurricane Harbor.
For a day outdoors in North Texas, in July, to be pleasant??
Unbelievable! I don’t think it even broke 90°!
Great weather for a day of walking, swimming, climbing endless stairs,
and indulging in
ridiculously overpriced food.
But I spent a lot of time here, so I was content-ish 🙂
I did take off 2 days to rest, accordingly. My legs had been tired from running, and it rained all day Thursday.
Sure fit signs to slow down and let my body recover, unrushed.
Today, I got back out there because the weather was peeerfect for some miles!
I was probably still a little dehydrated. I didn’t drink nearly as much at the park as I should’ve
and I’ve been eating a TON of sweets!
So, I tossed in a fruit punch Nuun to my wawa and got my fizzle on!
Running goal: I planned 6 miles. Felt god, but 1st mile was long.
I’d decided I would concede at 4-ish, and just focus on my long run Sunday.
But got a 2nd wind and just kept going!
8 Miles! Long-ish run for the week is
accidently officially done!
And just under an 11 min/mile pace.
I have to thank my hubby for bringing me water
and Spark at about mile 6.5.
I wouldn’t have made it otherwise, totally saved my run!
Here’s my splits to keep me accountable.
I am truly learning to run easy. Yes, its slowed me down, but it’s changed my running!
I am running distances I just would not a few months ago because I am not burning out.
I stretched about 10 minutes opening up my hips before coming inside for yoga…
Utthan Pristhasana, or Lizard Pose.
That moment your yoga instructor virtually adjusts your
I just love her! Such an amazing teacher and the one responsible for
me falling in love with yoga! Namaste, Caitlin
I’ve also started working to unblock my Muladhara, or my root chakra.
It has been very ungrounded since I stopped eating LCHF. Truth.
Anxiety, isolation, fatigue… I can feel it all.
It’s mainly why I’ve been practicing/sharing less inversions and arm balances; to focus more on
standing poses during my practice, such as warrior, low lunges, etc.
Which brings me to a picture a dear friend on IG added some “love” to…
The light and strength of yoga I hope to share, spread to everyone.
I love my Omies!
What are your workout weekend plans?

Good to see you back. Hooray for family vacations and much deserved rest. I’m glad your yoga is complimenting your running so nicely. You are inspiring!
