I like the last 5 minutes of yoga.

Another lovely evening of yoga with my mom. It was great to be back in that class and remember how inflexible I am… good times. Yoga is a great way to discover how many tight muscles you have! Hamstrings, calves, hips… tight tight tight! I love my lulu lemon yoga mat that my brother gave me for my birthday last year!


The sun was setting as we were going into yoga. It was BEFORE 7:00 pm. Here come the short days of winter!


We walked for ten minutes on the treadmill because we got to the gym early. My mom was walking so fast she was a blur.


I still had my gym wristband on from earlier that afternoon… well about an hour earlier when I was there for my run. I ran 10.0 miles on the treadmill. Eight miles were progressive and the last two were at a slower pace but with varying inclines. Want a really awesome kick butt (literally) workout? Add incline to your treadmill run… or any run for that matter!

Mile 1 @ 8:27 min/mile
Mile 2 @ 8:20 min/mile
Mile 3 @ 8:13 min/mile
Mile 4 @ 8:06 min/mile
Mile 5 @ 8:00 min/mile
Mile 6 @ 7:54 min/mile
Mile 7 @ 7:48 min/mile 
Mile 8 @ 7:42 min/mile
Mile 9 @ 9:00 min/mile 
Mile 10 @ 9:00 min/mile

Miles 9 and 10 I did hill intervals. 
0.1 miles @ 1%
0.1 miles @ 3%
0.1 miles @ 5%
and repeat. 

Today I noted that sometimes the most awful looking food is the best food. Example? Dried mangoes. 


Delicious! Yoga really was awesome tonight but I especially like the last 5 minutes. Lying on the floor and relaxing every muscle in my body and almost falling asleep = wonderful. I was ready for bed when we left the gym!


Next time I’ll just wear my pajamas to yoga.
