I’m talking about yoga. Yes I hated you. But I get it. I know now that you help me. You help make my core stronger. You help my flexibility. You help me cross-train and become a better runner. So thank you. But I still don’t like you.
I went back and forth for a while when trying to decide if I should break out the yoga. The leg is hanging in there. I’m feeling pretty good about it. Not good enough to run- I’ve become way too over-cautious to do that. But good enough to do yoga. So I turned on Exercise TV again and hit up the Fitness Fusion. My only worry was the warrior series, but the leg hung in there and didn’t complain! Progress…
Although it had been a little longer than I’d like to admit the last time I actually did it. I’m sorry yoga, I know I started to ignore you when running came back into my life. But you have to understand- running and I go way back. And we’re in love. No hard feelings… k?
It’s not cardio- but I’ll happily take it!
So I made sure to have a good breakfast for LOTS of energy today.First of all because I’m somewhat short on sleep (I swear the full moon brings weird dreams- what is that about?!?!). Secondly, because I have a super long road trip to Mid-MO to spend Easter weekend with the fam. And the discussions of new construction on the news in the background of that picture will most likely screw me over in some way or another… blah.
Before I continue, can I just say that now every time I have oats in a jar, I think about this cartoon my friend Ashlee sent me? She seriously did crack up at my nut butter addiction…So basically, I’m stirring it in the jar going “megggggaaaaaa butttteeeeerrrrrr!!!!!!” in an unnatural sounding voice (high or low pitch, whichever works for you). Yep. It’s the little things, kids. Just remember that…
Oh how I enjoy this trip. Not. Interstate 55 is the highway to nothingness. At least last time I had some of my fav boys to keep me amused on the way to Mardi Gras in St. Louis. I’m doing this one alone- and traveling about two hours longer… Ugh!
But it’s aight. I usually do ok on keeping myself entertained- the playlist has been updated. There are people to call and catch up with. I should be good! But am always open for suggestions if you have ways of making long trips seem shorter (that are not drug induced anyways…)? Originial plans were to leave after work and stop for the night in St. Louis. But one of my fav girls, Laura, has to work pretty early on Friday. So I think I’m just going to try to speed through StL, give a shout out to Busch Stadium on my way through (a little over 3 days until opening day, kids!), and be on my merry way into more highway and hills. And not much else. Peaceful… Almost too peaceful… ha ha
So there you have it! Maybe if you’re lucky, I’ll have some sweet stories of random occurences that happened in the middle of Illinois. Don’t hold your breath, but there’s always hope… And cross your fingers that there’s no Children of the Corn incident that goes down if my car breaks down. It’s a reoccurring concern of mine.
Have a good Thursday! I’m excited because I found an excuse to get a Trader Joe’s trip in today over lunch- figured I’d pick up some wine and a few unique TJ items as a nice thing to bring home tonight since my fam doesn’t really get exposure to a store around them. Not that they really care so much about that, but I still like bringing home fun things. Can we make nut butter an Easter tradition? Let’s try it…
