We visualize floating on a cloud in yoga. I'm ready.
I put on layers, muffler, hat, gloves and went out the trail. Temp was about 40°. I was almost back to the car when I saw a pair of deer, one, a buck, watching me carefully. They were on the other side of a very tall chain link fence pretty far away. I had been watching for deer the whole trail 45 minute run. From now on I plan to stay in the park.
Today DC and I are off to classes. Yoga and Meditation and Teas. I carry my large bag with needed stuff in it, yoga mat in its own bag, folded soft cushion for my knees in yoga, water bottle, etc. Maybe I should count that as cross training.
Safe and happy runs, All!
Isn't it amazing how much advance planning goes into a workout? We don't advertise that part!

Yoga, which should be a simple activity requires a lot of gear. My yoga bag, which is a mesh bag I ordered for swimming and ended up being MUCH bigger than I needed, contains my yoga mat, towel, two blocks and strap. So much stuff.
Do you have gear for the Teas class? Do you know what you are tasting today?
Interesting on the yoga gear. When I go (went might be more appropriate these days in recovery...) its just the mat and mat towel (rolled inside with the mat). The mat is in a yoga mat carrying bag, which has pockets for a strap. The studio has plenty of yoga blocks, extra towels (and onsite laundry!), straps, and other assist props. The mat carrying bag is easy to carry and I never feel overburdened.

Every activity is like that. Running, for instance. Just shoes, socks, shorts, sportsbra, shirt. Simple! And a hat. Watch/gps/step counter. Water bottle, energy gel. ID bracelet. Sunscreen. Towel for the carseat on the way home. Oh wait, it is getting cold. Long sleeves, tights, base layer, gloves, vest, different hat. And dark. Reflective gear and headlamp.

Shall we discuss bicycling?
And the necessary stuff to repair said bicycle if necessary.

The great part of OWS sans wetsuit. Swimsut, googles, cap. Then something warm for after-- but that stuff is in the closet anyway.

Green Cleansing Smoothie...
Note: no mat actually required. I've done yoga on the bare grass, on sand, on the wood deck of MyFormerHouse, on the area rug in my sleeping room, on the tiles of my kitchen... and this was not in India either.
Note 2: I have never used official "yoga clothing", eco-friendly water bottle, smoothie, or many of the other paraphernalia described, either here or there. I actually do not use yoga blocks or a yoga strap in daily practise - prefer to use poses that go with my body's current range of motion and keep balance on my own. The online studio I'm now a part of costs 15USD/month; when I went to an in-person studio, I walked there from my flat around the corner.
I must say I love my mat. And I like having a studio and being with the other people and having a teacher focus on us. But I buy my yoga clothing on major sale or thrift shop or wear what I have.

who is it on here who does yoga naked?
Might be coincidence or luck, but I've never been to a yoga studio with the green smoothie feel or had people look askance for clothing... do they exist, or is it a stereotype?
It's supposed to get cold here "today". That's all I know. I am wearing a sweater in anticipation.
I worked until after 7 last night. Starting and 8, it was a long day of talking to folks about teeth and dentures. I did take an hour break at 3:30 and took a cat nap, but I was fried last night.
SDO today wil give over 48 hours between my last workout and tomorrow's 5 mile race. It's a fairly competitive race, but the course beautiful so I'm focusing on that and looking forward to it.
Long intensive work hours can be really draining! I know after classes I feel somewhat fried as well.
Ran 4 with my friend and probably 1.5 on tap later with G.
I did yoga last night with my brand new mat - love it. INEYT EcoFuse Yoga Mat (Alpenglow)
It is pretty and very think and comfy and eco friendly.

Does the new mat smell rubbery? I think I had to have mine (different brand) in the garage for about a month until it off gassed enough for me to want it anywhere near me.
No not too bad. It is natural tree rubber. I also looked at some bamboo ones.
Good work on the 4 miler plus.
I noticed that those mats are not supposed to smell bad at all from the reviews. Also, a softer mat would be a great thing for knees and sit bones.
I got busy and forgot to post this morning. I ran 3 miles and it was a decent run. I didn't get to run much this week due to work, but I am hoping to have a better schedule next week. Tomorrow night we are going to a big pumpkin display and I'm looking forward to that.
Great work on the 3 miler! The pumpkin display should be really fun.
Cold, windy and snowing here
Wind chills in low 20s and 1 week ago it was 80 and sunny, got to love this crazy weather.
4 treadmill miles and strength today. Feels good to get back to a regular strength routine after minimal strength work the last few weeks of marathon training.
