morning glory

January 13, 2010

AM uplift
i have really been loving morning workouts lately! i don’t know what makes me the happiest: getting into the groove nice and early (and fueled by caffeine), the post-sweat glow that lasts well into the day, or the fact that i can just give into my body’s inclinations to be a lazy lump upon returning home from work in the evening.

on the workout menu for this morning: YOGA!


specifically, a dave farmar baptiste power yoga podcast. going to yoga last weekend with cara was really fun and i’d love to get to more live classes! however, i was also happy to find out that the workout was similar to the ones i have done with yogadownload — maybe a little more intense, but that’s more due to the types of classes i tend to select.

i’ve done a routine of dave’s from yogadownload, but even more enticing are the FREE audio routines on iTunes (or podbean). i find that i don’t really look at the pdf pose guide very often, so i think i should be okay with audio only.

i have a fairly hectic day up ahead (regular clinic, then wake teen clinic), so i will try to keep the lessons dave embeds in his routines in mind.

what happens when orla kiely + anthropologie mix?

you get this dress! and i HAVE to post it. how springy and cute.

coming up!
☑ 2-week check-in on 2010 resolutions
☑ a super-fun blogger interview



workout: 5 miles on the TM @ 0.5% incline with 3 tempo miles in the middle.
warm-up mile @ 9:13/mi
miles 2-4 @ 7:53/mi
mile 5 cooldown mile @ 9:13/mi

doin’ soup: ohhhhh we’ll be eating soup for a while in this household. luckily, the splendid table ‘garden-in-a-pot’ recipe was tasty and super-healthy!

served with more dr. krackers and bloomin’ sweet ash goat cheese from hillsborough cheese co (ie my current favorite cheese ever)

reading: 10 or so PREP questions. the boards that i signed up for are a mere 9 months away, after all.

    Good luck on your back-to-back clinic day. I just finished the hillsborough cheese co's camembert and am now ready for more bloomin' sweet ash – i agree it's our current fave.

    Mmm, that cheese looks really good. In the past year or so, I have developed quite a love affair with goat cheese.

    Did you get that goat cheese from Bella Bean?
    If you ever go to Blue Point Yoga let me know! I really want to do a class but need some motivation 🙂

    i think the runner's high and being able to be a lump at the end of the day are both great motivation to do morning work outs. plus seeing the sun rise while exercising always makes me happy (although you're probably on your way to work by then!) i'm only doing evening runs these days – my new attempt to actually keep to a schedule with c. it works, but i have to really force myself to get on that treadmill. YAY – this weekend!! Btw – with yoga – when did you actually feel like you could do those downloads – I've been faithfully doing yoga for the last 3 months, 2x a week with a neighbor who just took her instructor classes. i tried to do two different yoga dvd's over christmas and still couldn't keep up.. any suggestions?
