Tonight I decided to take another day off from running to allow my knees and ankles more time to recover. I am still feeling slight pain even after resting this past week.. So instead of running I completed the Daily Burn - Yoga 1: Surya A routine and got my stretch on. View a segment from this video HERE.

In order to relax and enjoy this yoga routine fully..I did not wear my heart rate monitor. So I won't have a photo of it to share with you guys tonight. 

Speaking of Yoga...

  1. Nice! I love yoga. Gotten away from it, but you just inspired to pull out that DVD of mine. Some of these poses are new to me. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I am right there with ya.. I haven't regularly done yoga in years. Every now and then I will practice handstand, and am quickly reminded that I am getting older. ;) lol I used to love it though, it helps with my anxiety for sure!

  2. Sweet and butta! That is one workout I want to do more of - YOGA!!!!!!!!

  3. LOVE Yoga! Not very flexible so it's challenging for me, but I've really gotten into it this past year. Glad you're listening to your body today and hope your legs are feeling better soon :)

    1. I used to be so flexible.. I could do back bends from standing up, the splits, you name it.. I could do it. Nooooot anymore! Someday I will get serious about yoga again and will get back to my old flexible self. :) It has been one of my reoccurring goals to be able to do the splits again, so maybe this will help! :D


Tell me about it!
