Today I decided to reconnect with why I named my blog, “drinkrunyoga”. I started my day with an amazing 3 mile recovery run. It has been 2 days since my half marathon, and the 3 miles felt easy and fast. Even though my time was on the slower side.
I planned to finish before 8, change, and head out the door by 8:15 to my hot yoga class. The class starts at 9, and it’s about 15 minutes away. I definitely thought about skipping it or not going because it was so late. However it worked out I got to the yoga studio around 8:35, and waited a few minutes before I headed in.
I have been to this studio a few times, maybe over 6 months ago. So I didn’t qualify as a newbie for the newbie deal. 2 weeks of unlimited classes for $20. Instead I just paid for the one class, $15.
Here I am in the women’s changing room heading to the hot room.
I got myself all settled in the hot room. The room is heated to 105, however they had fans going before the class started. This was a little deceiving, I had forgotten what 105 degrees feels like. Because once the class got started, the fans went off, and I was sweating like crazy!
I felt much stronger than I did 6 months ago. I moved through each posture and really tried to focus on what the instructor and what he was saying. He was speaking very fast. I looked around and followed the other students on some of the poses. I guess, even though I try to listen, I still need to listen more and be in the moment. The instructor seemed a little harsh in the beginning, but then I realized he had good intentions, and I think he was just going through the notions. He was definitely experienced and really guided all of us to our best practice. So in the end, I loved the class, and would totally take his class again. I am thinking of making this class a weekly thing instead of yoga x, the class is also 90 minutes long. I think the amount of time is less overwhelming when you are surrounded by other yogis and being guided by a great instructor.
Also I saw that they have teacher training there. Perhaps something I would totally be interested in, maybe in a year or so. I’ll keep you posted.
Here’s my very blurry after picture. I was completely drenched!
I was starving post work out, I headed straight to
I got a burrito bowl, brown rice, black beans, chicken, fajita style, with both mild and green salsa, and guacamole.
After I got home, showered, took care of the dogs, and started a load of laundry, I finally got to enjoy my burrito bowl.
I, of course, enjoyed every bite and devoured the whole thing. I did this while feeding bits of chicken to cy, and watching “Bethenney Ever After”. I love how tragic and epic this woman’s life is!
Later on the agenda:
Make tuna salad for lunches
Do 2 loads of dishes
Pick up Carlo at 4
Frozen yogurt after Carlo…
Nap with cy!
