Today was either a rest day or cross training so I kind of combined them both with some yoga. Yoga can be hard, but I found a couple of sites on the internet that have some nice videos that I followed. I ended up doing about an hour of yoga and I feel a bit looser. One site I found is http://www.yogaisyummy.net/. A lady named Polly runs this blog and provides a series of 10 min videos. I did the videos for low back and shins and knees.
After I did those I googled “yoga for neck” and found a video on YouTube from a site called http://www.yogayak.com. I did another half hour of various poses to stretch out my neck and shoulders. I came home with a dull headache today and this actually helped. I feel a bit taller, too, which is always nice.
On Yoga Yak there are also some guided meditations and I tried doing one for awhile, but there were such long pauses in between the “guided” part that I kept thinking the computer turned off so I kept looking at it to see if it was running. So, that kind of defeated the purpose of trying to meditate. I am just not a very good at it I guess.
So, now I am all stretched out and I am tired so I am going to get ready for bed.
I have to rest up because tomorrow is speed training. I never actually thought I would miss it, but I do. Here is the plan for tomorrow:
10 min walk warm-up
4 x 600m 3:03-3:17, w/200m in between
5 min cool down
Food was good today:
B: 4 egg whites w/salsa, 1 cup oatmeal with 1 T organic strawberry jam
S: yogurt w/one Whetbix
L: whole wheat pita, 2T hummus, big salad w/oil and vinegar
S: Kashi bar
D: 1 cup whole wheat pasta, marinara with mushrooms, spinach
S: 1 kashi waffle with a bit of peanut butter and jam ( I was starving for some reason – probably put me over my calories….)
I need to add more protein I think…. do better tomorrow.
