I was THIS close to going to lululemon polaris for yoga this morning as they have Sunday Fundays aka FREE yoga classes and today was my FAV yoga studio, Harbor. BUT the typical lazy Sundays set in and I lounged at home with my men and missed the class. I did make it there at the end of the class, however, just in time to stalk the instructors and use the gift card the hubby got me for our anniversary last week. And of course, got a Starbucks. So it was a nice little start to the day!
Bought this adorable STUFF YOUR BRA running tank ———->
You can stuff it with tissues if you want, but its meant to hold your keys or gels or cash or whatever you carry around on your runs. Its moisture wicking and their Luxtreme fabric that feels amazing.
So excited to use it!
Anyhow, I have really grown to love yoga this year, but I am still a runner at heart. So today was more YOGA FOR RUNNERS. We have information on our blog, but here are some more highlights on the benefits of yoga for runners.
Yoga at Gazelle Sports (from yesterday’s post) states that yoga…
- is a perfect cross-training activity to help prevent running injuries and pain
- will help with stress in your body and mind
- strengthens your balance and elongate your muscles
Christine from Christine Felstead’s Yoga for Runners says yoga will…
- Strengthen your body by using muscles you don’t use when you run
- Improve your breathing and can actually improve your VO2 max
- Deepen your mind/body connection
She states that runners often JUST want to run [I used to be in this category] but that yoga can help you run safer, smarter, stronger and healthier!
So anyhow, I didn’t make it out for a run today, but I did do this Yoga for Runner’s sequence:
