So far so good

It's been a good week so far. I went for my first outside run in a while on Monday and did pretty well considering there were lots of hills. I bought a Nike Plus for my iPod (because I refuse to switch to AT&T to get an iPhone with the GPS so I have to go old school) Now I can track my progress outside which will be fun.

It would have gotten used for the first time this morning if it weren't for the hot Pranakriya yoga class I took last night. I'm am extremely sore from head to toe. The only thing I might manage later is a dog walk. Hoping tomorrow won't be worse!!

I have been trying out different classes in the hot room and so far this one was the most ass kicking of all. I managed a forearm stand (against the wall of course!) for at least 30 seconds. Being upside down is liberating! I'm thankful for my teacher who is SO encouraging and calls me by name. Her interest really makes me want to keep practicing.

I'm proud of myself for making time for my exercise despite my 12 hour workdays. Sometimes it's the hardest thing in the world to do but it really does help in so many ways. Off to eat some soup and do a little stretch if I can even stand up! Have a great day everyone!

  1. Sounds like you're in a good groove with exercise. Keep at it! I'm old school with the phone too. Just can't see investing in a Smartphone - though knwoing me it'll happen eventually!

  2. How is hot yoga? Do you find it more strenuous/beneficial than regular yoga? I've never tried it but find it interesting.

  3. I love that you are so into yoga - one of these days, I'm going to get brave and take a class.

    Oh, and I'd get an iPhone in a heartbeat if I was rich. Sad how much I covet one...but I'm not willing to pay the money, either.
