Namaste

Saturday I rowed and rowed and rowed my little heart out on Kent Lake. I rowed for about 3 hours and my arms were so tired... but I did it!


Upon returning home I was going to go for a run, but was a little restless. In times like these I look for something more meditative than cardio. Flipping through the hundreds of Discovery Channels, I came across FitTv. Not that this is a new channel to me, I just never really fancied a network for exercise shows. I figured it would be more boring or hard to stay motivated, but as luck would have it, I stumbled across Namaste Yoga, a show that is very well choreographed, narrated, and actually relaxing and fun to do!


I find that this is a great way to supplement my strength training and running regimine, and it gives me a nice purposeful break from life... the me time that I need.


I did this show (30 minuites with 2 commercial breaks - 1 after the warm up, and 1 after the main section) both Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. I was looking forward to the show, and even busted out my Yoga mat. I also am going to get back into Winsor Pilates in the mornings to help me get a jump start on things.

The hardest part for me is going to be adjusting my schedule, now that I return to school for my masters in two weeks every Tuesday and Thursday evening, so that I can go to bed earlier and awake earlier to get in the workout and still have time to get ready for work.


So here is a question for all of you - how do you work, play, and get the corect amount of sleep, while still being viable for your training/fitness regimine?

I should be able to work, study for school, run, and workout but I know I need that precious time in the AM. I am not all about going to bed at 9PM, but I think that I may need to start!

The joys of Juggling!

Namaste,
