I’ve had a lot on my plate the past couple weeks, and had a very emotional evening so I decided to attend a Hot Yoga class last night. I haven’t been to one in a while and every time I go, I always feel refreshed, both physically and mentally. Let me just say, the class was PACKED, but I instantly felt the energy upon entering the room. I am so happy I went. It definitely eased my mind and gave me a good stretch..especially the Pigeon pose (my favorite!) This is a great hip flexor stretch to do if you’re a runner!
Now for today…
Happy Hump Day Ya’ll! I woke up this morning feeling a little groggy from staying up until 1:30 AM watching all the presidential election shenanigans. All I will say is, I am so grateful for the results and especially grateful for caffeine!
I knew I needed to get in a quick workout before work this morning so I completed the total body jump rope circuit workout I created yesterday (I was supposed to do Workout B from Best Body Boot Camp but I didn’t have time to go to the gym before work and I know I won’t go after). Yay for at-home exercising! I think I underestimated how sweaty the jump rope circuit would actually make me. By the end of the first round, I was red-faced and glistening. This workout is no joke!
My breakfast was simple but satisfying: Apple Cinnamon Chobani with Kashi Cinnamon Crunch cereal and Fuji apple chunks. Talk about apple cinnamon overload!
I need to go on a quick 3 mile run after work if I’m going to run this half marathon on Sunday! Crossing my fingers that I will be able to transfer from the 8K I originally registered for to the Half Marathon 🙂 I find out on Friday!
