Yoga Friday

Wendy likes to help with Yoga Fridays… sometimes. Today, she napped on the couch.

 

I don’t know why, but it seems like I always do yoga on Fridays.  My workouts have been kind of wacky this week (on account of the weather) so it was good to do something familiar.  One benefit of being stuck inside, though, is that it forced me to get in a couple good cross-training sessions.  I’ve also been very diligent with my foam rolling and mobility work.  Of course, the cross-training made me a little sore, so the yoga helped with that too.

Tomorrow, the weather is supposed to warm up a bit (like 10 degrees warmer than today!).  I can’t wait to go running.

 

Active Recovery

I was supposed to go for a long run today.  Unfortunately, we got about a foot of snow last night, and by the time the roads were cleared enough so I wouldn’t face-plant while running, it was dark.  Sigh…  tomorrow is another day.

After finishing all my work for the day, I did a light yoga workout.  It felt great to stretch out.  Between that and my valiant efforts to stay hydrated, I think I am ready for a great run tomorrow!

Active recovery is becoming a much more important part of my routine.  I’m not sure if it is because of my injury or just a natural part of the aging process.  Either way, I feel about a billion times better if I take a little time to stretch, foam roll, do yoga, etc.

In other news, this is hilarious…

Not sure why this made me laugh as hard as it did haha
