Sunday Sweats 71

May 2–8

Monday: studio yoga class (75 minutes)
To say I "took" Kelly's class this morning is taking a bit of license...I took most of her class, I should say. My body was definitely aching after yesterday's half marathon effort and the post-race shivering and muscle spasming (thanks to the freezing cold and rain), so I didn't fully move through every sequence. By the time I taught tonight though (was asked to sub a class) I was moving much more easily and comfortably from the hips.

Tuesday: studio yoga class (75 minutes)
Almost back to normal today. Felt strong enough to take every pose in Donna's class tonight with minimal objections from my hips ;)

Wednesday: rest
I might have run today on a normal week but between the weather and sore hips, it just wasn't happening. I taught mu 60-minute class in the morning and could barely muster any substantial energy for the rest of the day.

Thursday: studio yoga class (75 minutes)
I had a headache (no surprise on day 2,394 of rain) but went into Kelly's class anyway, though I did skip a short sequence toward the end. The lethargy and general feeling of "suck" is totally real right now. Totally didn't even have it in me to stay for Taryn's class after I taught tonight. It's definitely a rest week in every physical sense of the term.

Friday–Sunday: Nothing Good
This weekend was my cousin's bachelorette party, and aside from drinking water I guess I did absolutely nothing good for my body this weekend. Good thing these kinds of weekends only come around every so often. I'm ready to recover and get back to normal...

Weekly Totals
Running: 0 miles
Yoga: 225 minutes

No running this week. The first day I felt like I could comfortably run without aggravating still-angry legs was Thursday, but I won't let myself run on Thursdays anymore—not when I'm at the studio all morning and back again all evening, teaching and practicing, and need to have some time to work on, well, work during the day. I'm not broken up about it, but hope I'll get some fun miles in this week.
