Day 283: As the days of my challenge tick by I am realizing that working out is now embedded in my everyday regimen, blogging on the other hand is the first thing to take the back burner when life gets busy. I promise to you that I am sweating, life’s busyness has just taken the forefront.
Thursday morning I met a friend in Wash Park for a three-mile run and followed it up with a yoga sculpt class at Core Power (you’ll really start to see a trend here).
Day 284: Friday morning I woke up in Denver to complete sadness. My fiance came home from working a night shift at Buckley Air Force Base and told me to turn on the devastating news in Aurora. Like most tragic events, it took me some time to comprehend the magnitude of what had happened just a few miles from home. My heart was shattered for our state that has already endured so much pain in the past.
Working out was the furthest thing from my mind. So much so, that I decided that a picnic in the (empty) park, followed by an hour-long walk with Mike would have to suffice. We talked and talked trying to work through the overwhelming day. Sometimes I think that’s all we can to do find some ease.
Day 285: Core Power Yoga Sculpt.
Day 287: This morning I went on a three-mile run and then to Bonza Bodies tonight for a bootcamp style class. As I was in class tonight, I kept catching myself doing the wrong exercises, lifting the opposite leg as my classmates or zoning out to the point of not knowing what exercise my body had just completed. It was a huge realization to myself that I am still processing some things and feeling a little stressed in life. Running felt like a gift to my mind and although my body loved the hard class, my mind was left feeling more confused.
Tomorrow I will shoot for a yoga flow that can hopefully give my mind a little bit of a rest.
