I think it’s clear I’m not going to update this thing weekly. I’m sorry I failed all of you. However I do have several things coming up…including… MY FIRST (REAL) PAID YOGA GIG!
One of my old co-workers got a new job at a different company – and they happen to have an after work fitness program. They were looking for a yoga teacher and he recommended me. :). I’m unsure if this is a one time thing or a weekly thing, but either way I’m stoked. Also a good networking opportunity as well, since my day job corresponds with what they do :).
In order to prepare for that, I’m hosting a yoga breakfast at our place Sunday morning. Yoga followed by some breakfast. Can you think of anything better than that?
In terms of running, my half marathon at Disneyland is in 2 weeks. Last time I updated, I talked about how I came down with plantar faciitis. Well, I stayed off my foot for about 4 weeks and then hit the ground running (literally) after that. Roughly 2 weeks ago, my plantar faciitis flared up again. I’ve been staying off it, icing, etc… But this week I just got scared and went out for 2 different 2 mile runs. (and I was ok, but I could still feel it). I had gotten up to 8 miles before I had to quit. I’m worried about losing my momentum. I am running this race no matter what. So I hope to be more prepared than not. Maybe I should go to cycling classes to keep my conditioning up. I don’t know. I’m scared.
I will say this. I may quit distance running once this half is over. Not only do I keep getting injured, but since I was training so much, I’ve been missing out on my yoga, barre, and piloxing classes. I feel in less good shape because I’m basically only working my legs.
Well see what happens.
