My legs were feeling a bit stiff today after yesterday’s run (yes, I know it was only a short run, but I’m a bit out of practice) so I thought I’d have another go at some Yoga to see if it might help loosen things up a bit.
I decided to follow the same workout that I used on Monday and, to my surprise, it was a bit easier the second time round. I’m still not quite there with some of the stretches, but having done it once before, I found that I could focus a bit more on what I was doing rather than watching the video.
The main difference that I noticed was that I was much more relaxed than I had been on Monday. I could focus more on breathing and even felt slightly more flexible. I’m not sure if it was this that made me more relaxed, or if being more relaxed to begin with made the workout itself easier.
Either way though, I did enjoy it and will continue to practice on my non-running days as part of my training for my next 10K race in July.
Are you taking part in this year’s Juneathon? Do you do Yoga as part of your training? Has it helped with your running or general fitness? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
