I stayed up way too late last night, but at least I did a lot of stretching as I watched television. I was tight and sore from yesterdayâ€™s triathlon. The race ripped my calves (all those hills) and shoulders to shreds. I think my arms are so sore from the swim + bike combo. Holding yourself up on the bike is exhausting!
These are my favorite post-race stretches:
Downward Dog: Feels so good on your back and calves!
Pigeon Pose: Ultimate hip opener. I like to lay forward across my folded knee and breathe deeply. Hurtsâ€¦ but so good.
Bound Ankles: My feet always hurt after a hard race, so I rub the soles while I sit in this post.
Extended Triangle: Bestâ€¦ poseâ€¦ ever. Stretches so many things.
Yoga â€“ it feels so good. Even on your rug in your living room. A little practice is better than no practice at all!
(Not last night â€“ Lordy knows that kind of flexibly is not happening anytime soon!)
Breakfast featuredâ€¦ Mmmm Sauce. Obviously. Still working through that huge jar!
I made a scrambled egg and sprouts sammie, but mixed the Mmm Sauce in with the beaten eggs before scrambling. The result was very curry, very fluffy eggs. Get in my belly!
Iâ€™m off to Nicoleâ€™s bridal shower. I have two great gifts to give her â€“ Iâ€™m excited! Giving gifts is nearly as fun as receiving them. Heh.
