Sunday marked day three of my 30-Day Yoga Challenge and day seven of working out in a row.
My body is starting to feel like it used to after a day of water skiing when I was young: I am sore everywhere. Everywhere? Yes, everywhere. I don’t think there’s a muscle that yoga doesn’t work. The good news is it’s just a slight sore. It’s not the severe sore that keeps you from being able to walk properly or lift your arms to brush your teeth.
Day 3: Yoga Basics
Due to scheduling conflicts, I had to miss the morning Hatha 1 class I was aiming for and instead go to a late afternoon Yoga Basics class. Since it was a beginner-friendly class, I had a special guest join me:
It was Donnie’s first yoga class, so it made yesterday’s practice super exciting. I knew he would love it and couldn’t wait to hear his thoughts on the class as we walked out of the door.
Turns out I was right… he loved it! His favorite part was the meditation and how yoga helps you leave your worries or stresses behind. He was a big fan of the nap at the end (or the shavasana), which was briefly interrupted by a train passing by (the studio is right next to a train track). On a side note, we also realized that we were sandwiched in between two snorers during shavasana.
I was super impressed by his flexibility. There were a couple of times that I was using a block as a prop and would see him going full stretch out of the corner of my eye. Why did I never realize he was so bendy before??
I missed sweating along side my boo. It made my heart happy! Back in the days before Marathonfest we used to run together and I have missed getting to spend that time with him.
We came home and ended the weekend with some turkey chili and wine. We rode that yoga high for as long as possible.
On to start the work week. I have a week full of yoga planned ahead of me.
What are your sweat plans for the week?
