5 miles on the schedule today. Done! Overall feeling pretty good but it sure was an abrupt change back to cold temperatures this morning.
I agree with what he's saying that most women would think that way. Of course, in reality, it's the furthest thing from my mind. And probably not what most women think. I'd be going for the same reason those women are there which is to improve my strength(my core) and flexibility to help me continue running uninjured.
Another issue is how to pick a studio, an instructor, a class, a type of yoga. The whole thing really is new to me. I may just start by going to my local yoga studio that is close to home - The Yoga Studio of Shelby. It looks like they know what they're talking about and they have a first time drop in of only $10 + $2 mat rental. They also have a beginning yoga class as well to try it. Seems worth a try if I can work up the nerve. I know I shouldn't worry but you know......
I've got a co-worker who goes to yoga with his wife. He says it takes time to find the right instructor and class that you enjoy and helps you. I think it would also be easier if my wife went but its not really something she's into doing.
My other alternative is to purchase a DVD for yoga and start by doing it at home. At least I can get an idea if I like it or not for a relatively inexpensive cost. Probably not more than what a class would cost to drop in? I can't believe how many different types of yoga there are - its overwhelming!
So ladies(or gentleman who do yoga). What's your favorite kind of yoga and what would you suggest for a newbie looking to help with running? Anyone have a favorite DVD for yoga they love? I'm trying to expand my horizons on my cross training days.
Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
