I got home from work and was craving some quality time with Tiffany Cruikshank. Hopefully she doesn’t think I’m stalkerish or anything, but I LOVE her classes! I decided to go for her “Fresh Hips!” workout which was a 45 minute level 2/3. This was the first level 2/3 workout by her that I have done, and let me tell you-this was tough!
I thought I was getting pretty good at the yoga videos I have been doing but this definitely was a challenge being a fast paced flow with many inversions. It was even difficult doing the inversions when Dave supported me (I think he felt bad watching me fall over time after time!). But this class motivated me to watch some of the videos helping you work on these moves so I can practice them safely and improve. I noticed there is a Pinca Mayurasana (Peacock Tail) level 1 tutorial that I might attempt next. It seems like every time I take a new class I find something new and different to work on! I love it!
After shavasana, I ventured out for a 1.5 mile jog (9:51 pace) which was pain free! I want to continue to included these mini sessions so that I get closer and closer to running again. I am craving a race. As I was running I was imagining myself speeding through a finish line and being surrounded by my fellow sweaty runners! Some of my friends are planning on running the Superhero 5k on October 28th and I think that it is a good goal for me! I think that I can jog a 5k by then if I just remember that I will not be racing this race, it will be more of a fun run.
By the time Dave and I both finished our workout, it was 8:45 PM! We had both worked late and the repair crew was working on our broken sink/dishwasher. All our dishes were dirty because of the sink being out of commission so we headed for quick and cheap for dinner-Chipotle!
I tried to convince Dave to go to iYo after but he said no! But it was probably for the better since we have been spending so much money lately!
Do you find yourself always finding new goals to improving your fitness?
All the time! Even before I was injured I found new goals. That’s the great thing about living a healthy lifestyle-you always have something new to try! Keeps things interesting!
Do you visualize when you run?
I think I visualize more often than I think! I read that it is a good way to help calm nerves for both your races but for in life in general.
What superhero should I be if I run the Superhero 5k?!
