I love trying something new, don’t you? The challenge! The unknown! The feeling of conquering something! Sort of like my run yesterday.
Tonight, it was a yoga video from a set called HD Yoga. Now, I could be totally biased because the company I work for produced the set (which isn’t available till next week) — let me just get that right out there in the open. BUT if I didn’t like it, I would’ve just kept my mouth shut, you know? Last week, I tried the basics video. I liked it. It was relaxing. It helped stretch me out. I can see it being good for an “active rest day” (since I’m streaking an all).

The strength video tonight kicked my behind — well, actually it kicked my hamstrings, hips, core, etc. It was really hard and I did the basic poses. All through the hour-long video, I was thinking how I can see how the strength moves and breathing practice could really help my running. Oh, and boat pose? I was shaking something fierce in that boat pose. And let’s not even talk about these twisty crunch thing. I can’t. I know I’m going to be feeling those for the next two days. (Here’s my report on Dailymile.)
Anyway, I’m really loving it. I still have the core and vinyasa discs to try.
This exercise streak is really inspiring me, by the way. It’s only Day 3, but it’s already helping be conscious about getting in some sort of movement each day. Tomorrow, I’m looking forward to a lunch run with Mel.
Are you trying new things this year?
