So I had a free moment the other day, and feeling a little tight after my run, I decided to try something different to work out the kinks.
Please, don't laugh.
I had a DVD that I got for the Wife at Christmas, so I grabbed the yoga mat, threw the disc in and went to town.
Yoga is fucking hard.
It's an introductory disc, so it started out with stretching and stuff - felt great. I'll admit - as it moved on into explaining some of the poses and flows and shit, I stayed with the "easy" level - but even on easy, it's hard. I'm not the most flexible of guys, and the flexibility is only part of it - you have to have balance and core strength to boot.
As I did the stretching afterwards, I knew I was going to feel that soreness the next day - that good ache that tells you that you had a great workout.
I may not do it everyday, but I think incorporating yoga into my running schedule can only be a good thing.
Just give me a while before you look at me doing it - right now I feel as graceful as a Orca doing hurdles on dry ground.
