Now to the fitness blogging...haha. I think I've inadvertently joined a running group. No I wasn't walking down the street and then thought I signed a petition. My aunt is a RUNNER! In the past month she's run a marathon and two 1/2 marathons. She's not an elite runner slow and steady kind. She's the one that has dragged me to this running club. Tonight was a run night. I signed up for the short run (1.5 miles). I ran with my aunt nice and slow. Previously I have only done 1mile continuous running. Today I ran about 1.2 miles!!! Then ran walked 50/50 for the rest! I'm so proud of myself. My legs hurt but I did it!!
Bad news, like previously stated it was raining. I was going to go to the gym after the run. My feet were soaking! I just went home and did my yoga tape, no shoes required :) Not sure if I've told you but my yoga tape is AWESOME. Bodywisdommedia's Yoga For Beginners. It says it's only 8 routines but there are 13. The voice over is a calm relaxing lady and she always reminds about alignment, breathing, and offers options for making moves easier. Also it's a reasonable price. Do you ever go to the store and look at the video's like $25 for 20mins no way! This is only like $15. There are seven 10-30min basic routines, and six 40-70 more advanced ones. Definitely a great deal if you just want to try out yoga. I'm not a full out yogi, I do love my elliptical, but about once a week I love yoga. It makes me feel stretchy. A great quote from Ellen in her Shape interview
"For someone like me, who loves to sweat
and push herself, it's a challenge to slow down,
to sit, to breathe and hold poses"
