    Definitely do the month of hot yoga. That is such a great price!

    I agree with Dori: $75 is hard to beat. My studio had an introductory fee of $49 for your first month. That was AWESOME! Go with the yoga, especially while the weather is on your side.

    I would die if my studio was $75 unlimited. You are running so much, go for the yoga!

    I would go for the $75 yoga. The studio by me charges almost twice that!

    Yes, I’ve watched the show and I love it!! It also makes me want to go to all those places!!!!

    Unlimited yoga. For that amount, especially, but a month of as much yoga as you can get will do wonders for mind and body!
    I’m a big fan of that show – it’s usually on at the gym (the Food Network has a big following in the cardio section :). It’s interesting to hear what chefs crave and appreciate!

    I say go with the yoga – it makes more sense right now while you’re training since you aren’t going to the gym. And as someone who doesn’t have a yoga studio anywhere near her I definitely say take advantage!!

    That’s a great deal. Do the hot yoga. Is it only for one month? Do you have to commit for six months or something?

      I should have clarified – it’s $75 a month for unlimited yoga for as many months as I want.

    I recently went through a similar decision. Yoga has been a very important part of reconnecting with my body and I gladly cut the gym membership. However, I’m still able to use my company gym whenever – which is basically a glorified hotel gym. I say go for the yoga!!!

    I love that show and I’ve had the BEST french onion soup of my life in Brugge, Belgium.

    I’m always inspired at how you are able to make so many “toss together” meals look and sound so good!

    If it were me, I’d spring for the hot yoga. But that’s easy to say since I have unlimited access to our base gym, free of charge. Although honestly, even if I didn’t, I’d just run, and lift at home, and use the money at the studio. Hot yoga is bliss!

    That show is awesome! It makes me want to eat all sorts of unhealthy things!

    Yoga! However, I would miss group cycling and group strength classes at the gym! Tough choice!!

    oooh that would be a tough decision! I like the combo of yoga – AND weights / strength training 🙂

    I say do what makes you happy and you seem to reaally be lovin the hot yoga so i say go the yoga! we dont have that in Perth and that makes me so sad:(

    I would say to go with the hot yoga. It would like you really love it. Plus, you’re right to realize that you’ll be focusing on the marathon. Do you have access to some free-weights at home?
    I love “The Best Thing I Ever Ate,” but it definitely gives me food envy. Without a doubt, I would talk about the grilled artichokes from Houston’s restaurant. Love, love, love.

    I made the carrot cake scuffins this afternoon and was really happy with how they turned out!

    I think if you aren’t using the membership much then the hot yoga would be better. Do what you love! And the extra stretching is probably good for training anyways.

    Definitely the yoga…especially since you are running so much….enjoy! I’m jealous!

    Do the hot yoga! I’m sure it’ll supplement marathon training the best 🙂

    I say as much as you adore Hot yoga, to go for it! Definitely sounds like its worth the money.

    I love that show!! I feel like I would be an awesome guest on this one because there are sooo many wonderful meals that I’ve had that I would love to share with the world!

    Definitely the hot yoga! It’s a great compliment to all of the running you’re doing and will continue to do your body good 🙂

    Love that show. I literally take notes of places I have to go eat at some point in my life.

    Hot yoga definitely! How many months will you sign up for?(is a one time offer…..if so ,you may want to sign up for a few months-my hot yoga usually costs double that !!)
    My only problem is I do hot yoga lots but need to start doing either speed walking or jogging to get cardio in my life.

    Hot yoga is so very addictive -I am now at the stage where my mood is bleh when I don’t go several times a week.The best feeling ever is when one tries a one month challenge to attend EVERY day- your skin looks amazing but most importantly your mental state is filled with bliss and peacefulness 😉

    HOOKED on The Best Thing I Ever Ate. I love the commentaries from the professionals. they know their stuff!

    also– i vote unlimited hot yoga. there’s something liberating, rejuvenating and mindful about the practice. much more meaningful than a trip to the gym, if you ask me

    Hope you have a remarkable day.
    love love love,

    Without a doubt, unlimited hot yoga. It’ll stretch you out bigtime before the marathon!

    Im going to sound repetitive…YOGA but dont forget about mixing weight training in there also!

  38. Anya @ Fitness & Sunshine

    Such a tough choice! See what you like more: if yoga is more your thing, go for it. I’m not sure if I would choose it. I like yoga but I feel like strength training offered by a gym is more beneficial for me and the goals I’m working on.

    Tough!! 🙂

    Gym! yoga is nice but you get everything at the gym. Does your gym have yoga classes as well?

    Curious how you made the tofu fries…did you marinate them or put anything on them first or just cut it into sticks and bake it plain? I’ve got a block in the fridge and would like to try these!

    • Meghann
      August 3, 2010

      The tempeh fried didn’t have anything on them. I cut them into fry shapes and baked them plain at 400 for 15 minutes. Since I was dipping them in the BBQ sauce they really didn’t need anything special 🙂

    **sorry, meant TEMPEH fries, not tofu 🙂

    I love “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” it always inspires me to try cooking more often.

    Those tempeh fries are really tempting looking. I want to try them.

    I love the Best Thing I Ever Ate show. Recently my sister and I made a road trip game out of it. We took turns asking each other things like “the best ice cream you’ve ever had” or best Indian food you’ve ever had” It sure made the time pass more quickly!!

    Meghann, definitely HOT yoga. You may not like it as much because it’s not spontaneous, but I recommend also trying out bikram yoga.

    I’ve run for most of my life and have often used yoga to supplement my training schedule. It combines weight training and stretching and I love it! I’ve recently had to take a break from running so I have just been practicing yoga. You can read more about it here: http://shiningsee.com/2010/08/04/regular-yoga-practice-meditation/

    Whatever you do, have fun! 🙂
