Walk to Yoga Class, Yes Please!

I desperately want to start attending yoga classes regularly but it’s just not going to happen. If sign up for a night or weekend class then I need to find child care if Sai isn’t home…and I already do this once a week for soccer (my first love). If I sign up for something in the day (lunch hour), I could miss multiple weeks because I travel with work often. There just isn’t a win-win here for me.

Well, there kinda is. I’m going to be that “drop in” girl. Yes, the one that randomly attends your class and may miss a full week or two because I just can’t fit it in (that’s why I run on the treadmill when the girls go to bed). Thank you in advance for having drop-in as an option ๐Ÿ™‚

The other day,ย I sat down and looked at a local yoga studio’s schedule. I wrote down the class info for each lunch time class I could potentially attend and put it in my agenda book. Yes, I still use an agenda book to manage my meetings/life.ย Then I also wrote down the free lunch time skates at the local arena too! I figure if I don’t have a meeting that requires me to travel over or around the lunch hour then I’m going to do yoga or skate this winter. If I can’t make it, I just throw out the sticky and frown ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still going to run and play soccer but I kinda want to do some other things, ya know! I’m pumped about taking Lilly downhill skiing again this winter and can’t wait to cross-country ski and snowshoe when I can. I’m just ready to do more; have a variety of activities since I am not training specifically for a race. I’m just training to be healthy ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, I went to yoga, a two-minute walk from my office.

It was great. And hard at one point. And I may have dozed off at the end and so did my co-worker Melissa ๐Ÿ™‚

And my arms hurt for a few hours…well, they didn’t hurt but they felt wobbly for a while! I’m totally going back next week when time permits ๐Ÿ™‚

Running related:

I committed to my first 2015 race in September!!! I registered for the 5k and 1/2 Marathon at the Maritime Race Weekend (Sept 11th & 12th Tartan Twosome). ย I’ve been slowly writing my “wish list” for 2015 and thinking about my goals for next year.

What other activities/sports are you wanting to do this winter? (or next 4-5 months)

Do you workout at lunch time?

Are you signed up for any 2015 races/events?
