Perfecting the Plank

Sat, April 21

So true to form for me I chose my yoga class over my 11 mile run this am! The main reason was that it was raining, (I don’t mind if it rains while I’m running, especially in the summer, but I don’t like to start out in the rain), but truth be told I wanted to go to yoga! Is anyone shocked about this??!! Mo led us in a fantastic class today! We did a bunch of challenging sequences. I busted out crow a couple of times, and even did headstand tri-pod. Swweeeeeettt! What I learned today is that there really is such a thing as a comfortable plank pose. It sounds ludicrous, but I think I finally am learning the finer points of the plank. I find that thinking about pushing my heels into the mat and pushing my thighs/quads into the mat it is more comfortable and I feel stronger.

Next up tomorrow: 11 miles in the morning – last long run before the 1/2 and then in the afternoon I have a yoga workshop! Gonna be a busy fitness day – I hope I survive.
