I almost forgot how wonderful early morning runs can be. It feels like it’s been such a long, cold winter full of gym time or quick frigid runs outside. Not today! It was only about 30° but the sun felt warm and no wind! After a good five miles I was back at home and ready for some yoga. I’m trying to be really careful about keeping my IT bands from tightening up as I increase my mileage.
Breakfast was Nature’s Path Maple Sunrise cereal with the last of my quinoa oat granola, flax meal, cinnamon, banana and hazelnut milk.
Yoga Pose of the Day: Dolphin Plank Pose– Since I have to miss the Killer Buns & Abs class at my gym this morning I incorporated core strengthening poses like this one in my morning practice. I also came across this article on the link between yoga and weight loss.
Oh, and Feliz Cinco de Mayo! Anybody have plans to celebrate? I’m thinking a festive, spicy dinner and maybe a margarita or two 😉 ?
