Week in Fitness: February 4-9

Hey guys! Sorry that I was MIA all last week. Had some family matters to take care of and family trumps everything else.

As far as fitness goes last week, I took it slow getting back into exercise since the week before I had experienced some hip pain. Here is how my week went:

Sunday, Feb 4– Yoga with my boyfriend’s sister

Monday, Feb 5– Rest day

Tuesday, Feb 6– Ran 3 Miles along the trails

Wednesday, Feb 7– Hot Vinyasa Yoga

Thursday, Feb 8– 3.2 mile run along the trails

Friday, Feb 9– Rest day

My goal last week was to just relax and enjoy working out instead of putting pressure on myself to perform. Yoga with Greg’s sister was a lot of fun and a nice change of pace from my normal workout routine. I especially enjoyed our trip to Whole Foods afterwards for “the essentials” aka coffee and random food haha.

Then there was the Hot Vinyasa Yoga….O.M.G.!!!! It was an incredibly hard class. I can barely touch my toes so when you ask me to twist my arm under my leg and grab onto my opposite hip, it ain’t happenin’.  Would I do this class again? Meh. Maybe if that was the only option available. Personally, I think some of the positions were a bit high risk. But I used my best judgment and would go into downward dog or child’s pose when I felt the position was a bit compromising to my goal of recovering and relaxing.

As far as my running goes, I took it a bit slower this week and changed my frame of mind from training to leisurely activity. This way, I don’t put any pressure on myself if I am not running fast enough or far enough. It was nice to slow down and keep a lookout for all off the wildlife on the trails. Got some pictures posted on my instagram @seehollyrun
