Awesome short day

This morning is a pretty typical "short" day for me.

Did 25 mins. of 4/1 (note: i detest 20F), then followed with some Pilates, yoga, extra abs. Pilates was The Hundred, Leg Beaters (20 each side), Hip Beaters (10 each leg), Bicycle Twists (15 each leg), Superman (10 x 4 counts). Yoga was Drunk Flamingo (2 x 30 secs. each leg), modified Sun Salutation and modified Downward Dog (lotsa ahhhhhh from both). Finished with 60-second Plank and 45-Side Plank x 2.

Add to that a quick stop for some 7-Eleven coffee and you have a great, great way to kick-start the day.

Found my way over here from Sophie's blog, and, I must say it must've been meant to be. I think yoga is one thing I have really been missing from my overall training/life. It kept me flexible and improved my race recovery and overall strength. Thanks for motivating me!

Glad to pitch in on the motivation, especially for one of my fastest chica friends ever. Yoga will help you a LOT for MMT. :-)
