Sigh of Relief

It's been about a week since I misplaced my running watch. I've felt a touch out of synch. I've been avoiding the track knowing that it's ridiculous to run around in circles without a clue as to how fast. I took a client there and had to use my cell phone to time her repeats....sweet! I've spent at least a 1/2 hour a day tearing every room in the house apart trying to find it and more recently trying to cope with the idea of buying a new one even though the "old" one was used less than one year.

Then Today

When I got out of the shower I was puttering around in the bathroom when I heard the beautiful song of Beep Beep. I spun around, and sang out loud, "I heard you my blessed watch." Yes, blessed. The sound came from inside my closet. I hit the ground and swam through a few pairs of shoes, until I reached my long lost friend. Immediately tying it back on my wrist, I felt like my old self know, back in synch. In fact, even though I just ran three 6 minute mile repeats, I feel like heading over to the track just to push buttons.

as far as this goes, it's been hard for me! I love yoga, but it's hard to remember to fit in a couple of mini sessions each day. If I don't teach my morning class, I've been getting around to it by noon, and then I'm already behind! The past couple of night my third session has been a 12:30AM. BAD! The worst session was a quick on wearing jeans...not comfy. I do enjoy the way I feel afterward and I hope to time things better in the days to come. How are you doing?

The Two Week Yoga Challenge

Many dedicated yogis and students practice yoga through out the day. The Sun Salutation is actually meant to be performed just so, throughout the day as the sun moves over the earth (or is it the other way around?). While this daily practice improves flexibility and circulation, it will also boost your mood and energy level.

And so your challenge is to practice yoga three times throughout the day for two weeks. We will begin Sept. 21st and end Oct. 4th...don't be scared, it's just two weeks. Your three sessions can be as little as a few spins through the Sun Salutation or a full hour of set asana. The one stipulation is that a "session" must last at least 5 mins. Ideally, one would practice in the morning, at noon, and in the evening. If there is a problem with timing, just try to space sessions a few hours apart.

Two weeks too much? Shoot for one.
