In the past week I have started adding a 10 minute yoga routine to the end of every workout and run. It helps to keep me limber and relaxed. I really like it and will keep it as part of my routine.
This weekend is a cross training weekend. I am supposed to do something other than run. It feels odd to not be planning my long run. Part of me is relieved to not have that 11 mile run scheduled and the other part of me is a little anxious that I won't be able to get the calorie burn I usually get. Who knows, it may even be a better workout day because I don't have to focus on running. I just got some new exercise videos, so I will give those a try this weekend. I usually do not like videos because I have a hard time being inside when the weather is nice and I don't like things that are too choreographed. This appealed to me because it is quick, precise and targeted. It is called 10 Minute Trainer. I purchased it to use during the summer when I will not have a personal trainer and will be outside on my bicycle a lot. I've been using the yoga CD and really like it. I have viewed the other segments and think it looks very challenging and productive. I'm look forward to really getting into it after my half marathon.
