Because class today doesn’t start until 11, I got up at 7 (the luxury!) for a short and light run. Short due to time constraints; light because I had to stop every minute to pick my way over giant patches of black ice. Stats for 2.3 miles: 27 minutes, 201 calories, average hr 140, max hr 151.
After my run came the real success. In response to my yoga disaster last weekend, Victoria suggested that I try the Gentle Hatha #1 from yogadownload.com. I did just that after my run this morning, and it was perfect. This beginner class was much more my speed and had more poses that were familiar to me from when I used to take yoga classes at the gym. Plus, I felt so relaxed and stretched when I finished. I will be doing this again, yay!
For breakfast, I had a cup of Zucchini-Lime Cheesecake Oatmeal with 1/3 cup healthy cream cheese icing, 2 chopped strawberries, cinnamon, unsweetened coconut, and 2 crushed graham sticks from the snack packs I brought home from the NYU mentoring event last night. Oh, and a cup of Earl Grey with unsweetened Silk on the side:
Now I have to run because this prof HATES lateness, ahhhhhh. Hope you’re having a good day!
