Yoga with Jaye. I skipped yoga all last week, which made this class feel really good. Lots of stretching and popping and cracking. She tends to go over the class time (its already a 75 minute class!) and then people start leaving during shavasana.
Danny night. This felt pretty good.
First Round (3x):
A. 5 – I don’t know what they are called or how to even explain them.
B. 5 backward lunge (each side)
Second Round (3x):
A. 8 hex bar deadlifts (95 lbs)
B. 12 (each side) TRX SA row
Yoga with Jaye. We did a bit more of a restorative class. Not a true restorative class, but MUCH slower and simpler than normal. We did some restorative poses with the block that helped my back feel really good – something that has been a challenge!
OMG. Insert fan girl scream here:
Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1!!!!
Michael and I went to the 8pm showing. Apparently midnight showings were so popular, now they are doing 8pm showings the day before it officially comes out. I’m a huge Hunger Games fan and loved the film – even though its a bit darker than the others. (Side note: I’m such a big fan, I’m watching the Hunger Games as I’m writing this). Its nice to have a date night on weeknight.
Rest for the weekend since the half marathon was on Sunday. Michael and I just spent some time relaxing 🙂
Got up and went to the expo to pick up the race packed for Sunday. The expo was small but efficient. Afterwards, we went to Running Etc and I got fitted for some new shoes. A really nice woman helped me, and go figure, she knew Hollie! I’ve been saying for sometimes that I think the updated model of my Saucony Guides are causing my feet issues. After a few different shoes, I settled on the Asics Kayano. The Brooks Ravenna were a close runner up, but just didn’t have the stability of the Asics. We’ll see how they do!
Harbor Lights Half Marathon – recap to come!
