Day 246: I am finally feeling back to normal and full of life after the six-day friend bender last week. Refreshed, I wanted something to truly kick my butt…and Core Power Yoga’s Sculpt class with Tara, truly did just that. The studio boasts a steamy 95 degrees (or somewhere around there) and is a perfect combo of cardio, strength and balance. She even blared some TOTO “Africa,” which gets me amped like no other.
At one point I glanced at myself in the mirror and realized that I was running through the motions, but that my mind was so far away…in Vail with my 12 favorite friends, celebrating love and friendship. I’d start randomly smiling and try not to laugh. I’m sure I looked like the crazy person in the corner.
Freshly made good memories were the best way to get through a painfully hard class. What helps you get through your hard workouts? Do you listen to your breath or drift away to a shining memory?
Day 247: When my clients give me excuses why they do not work out, I make sure to call them on it. I don’t like excuses one bit….especially mine. However, today, I had two big ones called “blisters.” Last weekend my dancin’ shoes really did a number on my feet and they stubbornly do not want to heal. Regardless, I wanted to get out and run. I bandaged up my feet, tied up my new sneaks and headed out. I made it 40 minutes before I had to call it quits.
I guess those good memories from yesterday made a longer lasting impression on my heels. #blistersmeanfunhappened
