Yoga at lunch
Great practice today with Amy. We did side forearm plank for the first time which was pretty cool. It was freezing in the room at first so it was a little bit tough relaxing into it, but we rocked it out and ended up with a good workout. We did a few crows and I did a tripod headstand. I seem to be getting more used to the 90 minute class, however. The 60 minute classes just don’t seem to be enough anymore.
In other news, I heard back from Jenn Hadfield and she confirmed what I had guessed. I should rest from running and do low impact stuff like elliptical, biking, swimming etc. She also said that if the pain persists going into the half I should reconsider running as I don’t want to risk more severe injury and prolonged recovery. That is what I thought. So, I will be the dutiful soldier and follow her advice – she has never led me astray yet!
So, yoga tomorrow – 90 blissful minutes and then about 1 hour and 15 minutes at the gym doing elliptical, bike stuff. One day at a time and we’ll see what happens on May 6!
