How was your weekend?
I had a very productive weekend, which to me, is always a success! I feel so accomplished and prepared for the upcoming week when I get a lot done over the weekend. I have been extremely unmotivated the last week in a half, probably partially to the fact that I am back in the work routine and the other half of my laziness I attribute to allergies. Running-wise, I failed at life. We have had some really rainy weather here in Portland (big surprise, I know) that for some reason, completely aggravated my allergies. With a throbbing head and a lack of physical energy, I turned to yoga. I love yoga. It helps me center my body, relax my mind and stretch out many of my runner's aches and pains. I have found that with deep stretches and slow movement, I am able to work out many of my early morning stiffness as well. There are a few poses that I really turn to in the morning and I wanted to share them with you.
