Wellness Wednesday...Ep. 14

Happy Wednesday!  Hope all is well with you, right now I think I'm fighting off a cold, but other than that things are good.  Here is what last week's plan was and what I actually did:
  • Wednesday: rest rest
  • Thursday: 3 mile run and yoga 3 miles on treadmill and 1 hour yoga
  • Friday: bike rest
  • Saturday: 4 mile run 4.6 mile run! (felt great!)
  • Sunday: rest rest
  • Monday: yoga 1 hour yoga barre
  • Tuesday: 3 mile run and yoga rest
A little more about the yoga classes I've been taking.  I take class at the Chapin Yoga Center and the teachers are amazing!  I've taken 3 different classes: Yoga Barre, Stretch and Strengthen, and Deep Stretch.  I have taken Stretch and Strengthen at least once a week since they opened and I absolutely love it!  It's really a good intro to Yoga, I feel like I've learned quite a bit in the past month.  I also leave that class everytime feeling a deep calm and relaxation, but at the same time, I definitely feel I have worked my body.  I took Deep Stretch once last month, and I really wish I had taken it more.  It really is a great class for learning some of the poses and learning to control your breathing while holding the pose.  It's not being offered in the evening this month, but I hope it comes back!  And then there is Yoga Barre, it's a new class offered this month, and so I've only been once and man oh man did it kick my tail!  I'm not sure how I feel about it right now, but it's only offered once a week for right now, so I'm going to take it for the month of May at least.  That way I can say I gave it a fair shot!  Since starting taking yoga classes the first of April, I'm feeling great changes in my body, my flexibility has increased a bit, my balance feels better, and most importantly, my stress levels have dipped.  I think yoga has been a great compliment to my running and I plan to keep it up!

Now...the plan for this week:
  • Wednesday: rest (depends on how I'm feeling later today)
  • Thursday: 3 mile run and yoga
  • Friday: bike
  • Saturday: 4 mile run
  • Sunday: rest
  • Monday: yoga
  • Tuesday: 3 mile run and yoga
And now to down some Vitamin C and fight back against this ick that's creeping up on me!
