After a rough time last weekend thanks to an ER visit and discovery of a kidney stone, my week ended on a high note! The kidney stone forced me to cancel my fitness classes for the week because I had pain on and off all on my left side. My week went like this…
Monday: rest and yoga. I really wanted to run, but woke up not feeling well. I joined in on a yoga challenge I found on Instagram called #PowerIntoSpring. If I win the challenge I get something from Lululemon! My favorite running shorts right now! I’ve been practicing yoga for 4 years and used to do these challenges all the time. Since I teach my own class, it’s hard to get to the yoga classes at my gym. I miss it! Day 1: Chaturanga Day 2: Forward Fold
Tuesday: Running and yoga! I woke up feeling better so decided to run a few easy miles. I made it 3.1 miles and felt great! I also went to the Urologist who basically told me my Kidney stone was small and may not go anywhere. The pain I had been feeling was from a UTI that had not cleared with the other antibiotics I was on. I am still taking new antibiotics and go back to see the Urologist in a couple of weeks. Namaste Fit!Day 3: Upward Facing DogDay 4: Warrior IIIDay 5: Reverse Warrior
Wednesday: 3 mile run and yoga. This run went a little faster than expected due to a German Shepherd jumping out at me, scaring the you know what out of me! Luckily the owners of that dog do not live here full time. The hairs on his back were standing straight up. I don’t think he wanted to be friends. I ran 3 miles in under 30 minutes thanks to him. My face after being chased and wondering if my Lab would have helped me if indeed I was in trouble? 🤔Day 6: Half MoonDay 7: Revolved Triangle PoseDay 8: Triangle Pose
Day 9: King Dancer Pose
Day 10: Revolved Hand to Big Toe Pose
Saturday: 8 mile long run! I have 3 weeks until the Magnolia Meltdown Half Marathon and I am not very prepared. I got up early and started running at 6 AM. I ran 4 miles slow and picked up the pace for 4 miles. The weather was perfect, I conquered all the hills and managed an easy 10:49 pace! I was so happy about this run and how well it went! Sometimes I struggle with fatigue after a long run, but I’m happy to say I felt great after this one. I know it’s because the temps were in the 50’s the whole time I ran. I love running early because it seems so hot by 8 o’clock in the morning already! My goal for Magnolia Meltdown is to beat my time from Mississippi River in February which was 2:28:57. If I run like I did yesterday, I should achieve that goal! I finished up the yoga challenge too. Maybe I will win??
