It’s Aloha Friday~
it started off with my own yoga session.
I love the feeling of how my body warms up and stretches out little by little.
Today, this pose felt really great: Maricyasana I
The girl in the above photo has her arm wrapped around her bent leg- in a hugging way so the knee stays closer to your body, but it’s best to have the arm closer to the shin rather than the knee.
I still have a little hard time putting my nose on my knee/shin area but with practice, I’m hoping to achieve that!
Another favorite pose: Trikonasana
The above one is a twisted/rotated one, but there’s one that is not twisted that feels amazing. After doing ab/core workouts for 2 days in a row, it felt great to stretch out those obliques.
So no runs for me today!
I’m hoping to keep my body well hydrated and stretched (and relaxed) for the long run tomorrow.
I have yet to decide where to run. I came up with 4 ideas-
-Ewa Beach area (very flat but very hot)
–Kailua area (a little incline/decline, could get hot, nice views)
-Dillingham/Mokuleia area (flat but hot, may be dangerous with speeding cars and homeless people walking around…)
-Ford Island area (have no idea how the incline/decline situation is, could get hot and humid?, probably not that much to view)
We also have to do the usual errands- grocery shopping! gymnastics class for the kids! farmer’s market! kid’s bday party/BBQ at a friend’s house!
I hope I survive the 12 mile run……I’m nervous! It’s been a while since I ran that much. Our last half marathon was in April and since then, I have not run more than 10 miles.
Thought I’d share some relaxin photos to start your nice weekend!
