I’m not sold on the idea that yoga improves your running or vice versa. But I do think they’re both good for you in different ways.
So I try to do them both.
I have 10 classes at this studio, and yesterday I tallied up #5. The class was a little over an hour, “vinyasa intermediate” style. I would never consider myself intermediate, but the other classes I’ve taken at Meridian Yoga have been really basic, and, hate to say it, kind of boring. So I took it up a notch.
Followed by some 500 meter sprints this morning!
I’m starting quite a collection of Teddy Roosevelt High School track photos.
I even busted out my Garmin to track my time! Fastest was 1:59. By the end of the summer let’s hope it’s lower than that! There’s debate about benefits of yoga + running but track + running is a no-brainer in terms of getting faster. I started running track when training for my second marathon, and reduced my race time by 20 minutes!
Kenny and I posed for some very authentic running shots:
Look at the prettiest flower I passed on my way home! Even though we’ve had some rainy days this week, there’s always something bright and cheery if you look for it. That’s life.
