Journaling, Running, and More Yoga

I used to love writing in my journal. I probably have a half-dozen filled journals–most of them from the drama that was high school. It’s always interesting to me to go back and remember the good ol’ days. (“I heart so-and-so!”; “Being a teenager’s hard!”)

Anyway, I’m telling you this because I’ve started writing down my workouts in a lovely little number from Walmart. It’s really awesome to go through it and see everything that I’ve been doing to stay  active, and it makes me just feel good about myself. I’d you don’t keep a journal or a log or anything of your workouts, I totally recommend it.

So, according to my journal last week, here are my stats:

  • Monday: 55-minute yoga class; 10 minutes bedtime yoga stretches
  • Tuesday: 2.2 miles, comfortably; 15 minutes yoga before bed (here’s a great sequence); 2:05 plank for #plankaday
  • Wednesday: 45-minute yoga class (normally 55, but our instructor was late)
  • Thursday: 2 miles, hardish pace with some pickups; short yoga practice after running to stretch; 2:10 plank.
  •  Friday: Some stretching; 2:15 plank
  • Saturday: 5.17-mile long run

And there you go, my week of workouts. Good stuff, eh? Did I tell you how much I’m loving yoga? Try it. And if you don’t know where to start, check out DoYogawithMe.com. This site has hundreds of free HD yoga videos available to stream to your computer or other device. Totally awesome and very well done.
