This week’s workouts spanned two states! Starting in Maryland and ending in New York.
Morning Stretch: Yoga for Runners
I began my work week with some Sunday SCUBA. An hour at the bottom of the pool scraping paint. Not the most exhilarating experience, but a great fine toning arm workout.
Morning Stretch: Yoga for the New Year
Before heading to work I went through three rounds of the Tone It Up Sunset Workout.
It was dreary and rainy outside and this only made me crave warm weather and beaches.
Morning Stretch: Get Your Morning Moving
Morning Stretch: Got a Pain in Your Back? Tara Stiles is Here to Help (Z was having back pain so it only seemed appropriate…she has a yoga routine for everything!).
I was done with work by 3pm and decided that a good way to start off my FIVE day weekend was with an Australian-inspired routine from this week’s Bikini Series schedule.
My favorite move:
bridge + shoulder press + sit up + punch.
There were so many components to it that you worked a lot of muscles in the process!
After that it was time to channel my inner Tina Turner and head to dance class where we rolled, rolled, rolled on the river til we just couldn’t roll no more. Our recital is only five weeks away. Eek!
Morning Stretch: Yoga for Digestion
The rest of the day was sedentary as we hopped in the car and drove 4.5 hours to my parents’ house in New York.
Morning Stretch: Morning Yoga for Flexibility
After a morning of errands, Z and I decided to take advantage of the “not a cloud in the sky/abundant sunshine” weather and go for a run around the block. Living in a rural area, “the block” is really a 3.5 mile loop.
A large part of that is roads, old stone walls, and forest. Ah, the country…
(P.S. I had a summer job mowing the horse pasture seen in this picture, plus the yard and apple orchard associated with that property. I like lawn mowers, what can I say?)
It took us 49 minutes to reach the top…and that was only one mile! With the trail being as steep and rocky as it was it essentially the equivalent of 49 minutes on the stair master. I’ll take a trail over a gym any day though.
Whew, what a busy week! It’s Sunday and I will certainly be taking it as a day of rest thank you very much.
