I did it! I got out of bed at 7:30am (with the help of a wake up call and coffee delivery by my awesome husband) to go running. It’s not that 7:30 is an early rise but when you’ve got the day off and it’s 35 degrees out at that hour it can be a little hard to motivate.
I did not, however, do 8 miles. I cleverly planned a route that started with Kath and Matt leaving their house, running 1.5 miles to our house, picking us up, running nearly 5 together, then splitting for them to complete a total of 8 and Tate and I 5. Since Kath ♥’s the hills there was many an incline! (Sorry Kath!)
Once we got moving the temperature didn’t bother me at all, in fact I liked it.
As soon as we got home I hit the mat for some yoga. I did about 20 minutes of this flow, with a few additions. MISSION: Yoga 5 for 5 is going great. Last week I did one class, three dvd’s, and one self-led practice. This week I plan on two self-led practices, two dvd’s, and a podcast. I have never tried a yoga podcast but I have heard lots of great reviews of Dave Farmer so I think I will start there.
I didn’t realize it was going to frost so hard last night and I feel like a jerk for leaving my little baby greens out!
Off to play in the sunshine! Tate and I have a big day planned of scenic driving, hiking, and wine tasting.
