Training…

I’m going to be honest and say that I’ve been slacking on my workout for two days. Hoping to at least get a bike ride in tonight :)

But, my eating habits are way better. I do not eat out at all for lunch :) I have cheat meals here and there, but meal prepping really helps. The weekends are a little harder.

What I do find really astonishing is how freaked out people get at work bc they see me in the break room everyday. Today I was eating my chicken salad sandwich and sliced up some tomatoes as a side. Some girls walks in and asked me about my food. I told her what I was eating. Then she asked what I was going to do with the slices of tomato to which I responded “Umm eat it.” It was like foreign concept to her that I was going to eat slices of tomatoes. Lol

Anyway, can’t wait for the Spartan Race :)

10 Yoga Poses that will Compliment any Runner

If you run, you MUST compliment your running with stretching before and after so your muscles don’t tighten up. 

Here, I’ve put together some easy poses anyone can do after a run. Do them in order after your run. Go at your own pace, be kind to yourself and do what feels good. Don’t get discouraged if you’re not as flexible as you wish…you’ll get more flexible if you keep going. 

You’ll see progress quick if you stick to it. I promise!

1. Downward facing dog-

Stretches basically everything. Hips, hamstrings, shoulders, back, achilles, calves, etc. Also, it can be very cooling after running and a good moment to just relax and slow down.

2. Lizard Lunge-

A great opening in the hips and hamstrings which I always find needed after running. You can even take the hand closest to the instep of the foot and place it on your knee to gently push the knee out to the side. Do on both legs, naturally.

3. Horse Squat-

A good twist and hip opening. The help of gravity makes this stretch extra yummy! Push your knees apart with your hands and let it feel good!

4. Malasana Squat-

After horse squat, take your hips down towards the ground. This is AMAZING on the low back which can sometimes feel jarred after running. Plus another great opening in the hips.

5. Wide Legged Forward Fold-

I love this pose to stretch everything and to improve my posture by opening in the heart space. Make sure you lift at your inner arches here slightly to avoid dumping in your feet and hurting your knees. 

6. Tip Toe Pose-

I encourage all of my students and friends and family and anyone to do this. If you have never done this, it may feel pretty intense at first and you may not be able to sit in it for long. But do it everyday. Trust me, you will thank your healthy feet. Especially after having your feetsies in shoes all day, this is a must.

7. Top of the Foot Stretch-

To counter the last stretch, this one feels great and is crucial for balancing out your feet. It feels so good from the top of the shin down. Again, if you never stretch your feet, you may notice your arches are pretty tight. Either way, do it everyday.

8. Bhekasana/Frog Pose-

After working your quads on that run, this is the best thing you could do for them. It stretches the entire thigh. Don’t leave this one out. It’s way too good.

9. Pyramid Pose with elevated toes-

You could use the street curb for this one. Crazy good hamstring and achilles stretch. This wall was convenient for me to rest my forehead on.

10. IT Band Stretch-

Right after pyramid pose, take this twisty position to stretch out the IT band. You won’t regret it.

Do these stretches after runs and get back to me on how you feel in a few weeks. I can assure you it will improve your running, flexibility and power. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. 

Namaste!
