strength & stretching 1:15:00 [3]

Made it to yoga class this morning. Great workout - my legs and arms were beat. Good thing I've been doing a bit of yoga on my own since otherwise I'm sure I would have collapsed several times and given up.

Unfortunately, my schedule and the class schedule just don't allow me to get to classes easily.
5 PM

trail 35:44 [3]

Normal short loop. I am at a total loss to explain the time. I walked for 3 minutes at the first big hill as usual but then could not even keep jogging through the meadow. I did a bunch of walk 50 paces, run 100 type things to get through the rest of the hilly part. How could that be faster than what I did last time? And 1:15 faster.

I did hit the first hill a little faster than normal so the only explanation I can find is that when I was running, I was running faster. Perhaps yoga this morning loosened me up and allowed me to move better. But I certainly didn't feel like I was moving any faster.

Very strange.

trail 2:15:00 [3]

A long hike in the Wissahickon listening to a book to help pass the time. Stopping at the gelato place also helped!

(rest day)

Headache and scratchy throat prompted a rest day. I think it's allergies.

yoga dvd

Not very flexible so early in the morning. Would probably help to do this more often than once a week since I don't seem to be getting to the evening classes much anymore.
6 PM

Cut the walking parts down a bit.

hiking 40:40 [3]

So wanted to stay in bed this morning but got out the door. Took a new route since I wanted something a little shorter since it did take me about 20 minutes to decide to get out of bed.

hiking 50:10 [3]

Trail is pretty muddy but only a couple new trees down. The section by the stable is fenced off - not sure if it's temporary or permanent.
