I know, I know. Wednesday was supposed to be speedwork.
But two things happened.
First, my friend Alison (hi, Alison!) organized a Seinfeld trivia night last night. I am terrible at trivia (unless it’s about Baby-Sitters Club or celebrity heights), but wanted to come out and support my friend.
Second, I NEEDED to do yoga. It’s weird how your body gets like that. A few years ago, I thought yoga a couple times a month was more than enough. Now, if I don’t do it a couple times a week, my body starts to rebel. And I haven’t been doing it enough since starting my training.
Yesterday, work was light on meetings, so I squeezed in the 50 minute lunch time hot class at Yoga Tree. It felt good to stretch. My muscles are TIGHT. And my shoulder still isn’t 100% recovered from my bike spill in December — but I had never noticed while running. Yoga can do that.
I’ll do my speedwork today and hills on Friday. That means this is the third week in a row that I won’t be doing my “optional” Saturday run, but I’m okay with that.
Maybe I’ll do yoga that day instead.
