I didn't think it was possible...but the marathon made me lazy. It's true. Since the marathon I think I have went to Nike Training Club one time and have run about 3 miles. Yup. That's it.
Wasn't this supposed to be a "lifestyle"? Instead it became a "I am so tiered and I just ran a marathon so I have an excuse to not do x, y, or z" type of lifestyle. Not cute.
I am, when it comes to working out, a creature of routine. And when I am in a solid routine I am golden. But when that routine breaks done (oh, say...SRLA stops and I am no longer accountable for running at least 3 times a week) things get bad.
So I need to start a new routine. Running and I are on a bit of a break because I think our relationship was getting a bit unstable (read: both my knees are out of commission right now), so I am sticking to a 10K in the middle of April and that's it (for now). But I think it might be that time again to call up my old friend yoga.
Yoga and I had a good run back in college. I was a semester ahead upon entering college from AP classes and took a full course load almost every semester I was at UMASS because I am a nerd so my last semester senior year I was straight chilling. And by straight chilling I mean actually taking a yoga class for credit 2x a week. After college I kept up my practice and then TFA started and I basically forgot I was a person and it was all downhill from there.
Now seems like as good a time as any to get back in flow (so to speak...yoga joke!). I am going - literally in 20 minutes - to a studio across from my home that I have sadly never been to even though I have lived here for almost 3 years (pathetic) to try a class. What better time than spring break to take one of those "who on earth can do yoga at 9:15 am" classes. Wish me luck!
...now if I could only find my mat.
