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 🙂
The other day, 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. 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 😦
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 😉
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 🙂
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 🙂
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). 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?

Go girl! Yoga is great and it’s even better if you are a runner!
Try hot yoga if you get a chance – that should be amazing during winter 🙂
I’d love to try hot yoga, it’s on my list 🙂
Hahah, yes I have fallen asleep during Shavasanna at the end of a good class too! Good for you for fitting it in where you can.
It must be a sign of a good class 🙂
Nice job on making it work for your schedule. I’ve just started back at my local yoga studio and am loving it – well my shoulders not so much thank you eagle pose. And our local ski resorts are opening this weekend with a couple of snow storms on the way.
Thanks! Yeah, my shoulders and arms are hurting today! I’m jealous your ski resorts are opening this weekend – hope you get to enjoy them!

Flexibility is free speed! Your running will love consistent yoga practice.
I’ve been getting a bit “stale” with my yoga at home lately, so I want to try some of the great studios nearby. Glad you enjoyed the class!
Now that I’m done with races I just want to x-country ski, skate ski and snowshoe, plus run too. But all for fun now! No more pressure! I hit yoga at lunch sometimes too, it’s the only time I seem to have as the rest of the classes are just too late for my liking.
