Yoga and Water Aerobics

My plan said that today was supposed to be stretch and strength. It turned out to be water aerobics and yoga. The H2Ox was non-negotiable since I teach it on Thursdays BUT...

Whose idea was it to do YOGA today?

Well, whose ever it was it was a GOOD one (thanks AN the RB). Today for 1 hour and 15 min it was downward dog, eagle pose, half moon balancing pose, forward fold, uttanasana, tree pose, and so so many more that I cannot pronounce. I am going to try to add this to my weekly training. Last year around this time I was going about twice a week and felt like I was doing pretty well, until some crazy yoga chicks (no offense if you are a crazy yoga chick) came in and were wrapping themselves up like noodles and standing on their hands all sorts of craziness. THAT was not me. I was doing the easy modification and they were like talking to Buddha or something. It was amazing.

Here are a few things I considered during yoga today:

-Hmm, maybe I could try to like really get into yoga and be an instructor or something.

-That might be really hard to do

-How in THE WORLD is that woman doing that?

-Did I shave my pits, because this poor instructor is adjusting my shoulders and it can’t be pretty (sorry way bendy yoga dude).

-I really REALLY need to bring my own yoga mat because putting my face on this thing is really grossing me out.

-Um…this move might make me need to toot !

-How embarrassing and who can I blame it on?

-Yeah, so those 5 chicks over there must be gymnasts because, well it is obvious.

-I can’t wait to run tomorrow.

So tomorrow it is back to running!

Today I am grateful:
-that my little running buddy is doing so great in swimming lessons!
-that yoga was awesome and I actually like the mental and meditation part of it too.
-that some people in this world are creative and artistic.
