My mini heater –aka Abbie – kept me nice and toasty again last night. She may be a pain in the butt in the summer time but that extra heat works wonders in the winter.
Since I am a big believer in taking a rest day from running before any race –big or small – I went with the Yoga route this morning. I have been eyeing the Yoga for Runners on YogaDownload.com for a while, but was a little scared to try an ‘intermediate’ yoga session. Yesterday I was inspired by Kath’s review of the session and decided to give it a try myself. I figured if it was to hard I could easily stop it and try something new.
I found the podcast on Itunes, which was really helpful as it played with a slideshow of pose references. I took the session at my own pace and really worked at stretching my leg muscles with the multiple lunge esque poses the session taught.
Breakfast this morning was a little bit of a weekday morning indulgence.
When I made my Blackberry Waffles on Saturday, I made an extra and froze it for a weekday treat. This morning I took the waffle and popped it in the toaster just as I would an eggo. They came out warm, crispy and delicious.
I topped my pre-made waffle with Strawberries, Blackberries and Sugar-Free Syrup. Yum!
