Day 117: Being able to workout at home is a wonderful thing. I used to practice yoga from home once in a while and found it to be a decent workout, but not the best because of all the distractions. Since Mike has installed the TRX mount in our living room, I have been pleasantly surprised with my ability to hone in on the video and forget about my surroundings. With the sidewalks still yielding slick icy spots I chose to forgo my typical morning run and do a TRX video. What I like about the workout is that I can challenge myself differently every time I complete the video; adjusting it to what my body can do that day.
Day 118: I love being able to walk to a local yoga studio. Not only for the additional exercise, but it’s a nice reminder of how much I love living in a city. This morning I walked to Core Power Yoga and took an hour-long heated flow. As I was flowing, I listened to my what my body wanted. Today, I knew that it did not need to go as hard as possible; instead, it wanted me to recognize that I could take it a little easier in class. I skipped a few chaturangas and once I fell out of a headstand, I did not attempt to go up for a second. It felt good to feel in sync with my entirety. I hope you read this and you can relate to what I am trying to say, because it feels damn good.
