Yoga Take Two
The pool was closed today. It's called Family Day in these parts, its an official holiday so no work means long weekend! Technically super-long weekend since I took the warm Friday off to do my long run. I dont count that 31Km run as a holiday though. I would have gladly of worked instead! lol j/k
So unable to swim, we opted to do some Yoga. I haven't tried it for almost two weeks now. It has taken this long to recover and not have aches and pains in areas of my body that I didn't know existed. At least this time the wife is joining me. This way I can laugh at her, poke and prod her, and test her calmness during Yoga. That was the highlight of the workout :)
Whats that smell?
I think I did OK. My biggest weakness is the fact I cannot straighten my leg no matter how hard I try when lifting it. Actually, my biggest weakness is EVERYTHING but there are differnt levels of Suck. Some moves just suck more than others. I felt great afterwards! 'Things' were protuding around my mid section. Either those are muscles flexing or I got a lump of pizza stuck in my intestine again. Either way, it was sore.
The day was topped off with a surprise package arriving! On a holiday? I had no idea the delivery people worked on a holiday, awesome for me! Sucks for them! We have been waiting on the seatpost clamp for the wife's bike and I had my own goodies in that order - Aero Carbon Water Cage/Bottle, some Kona water bottles and a spare Dura Ace cable set. All parts have arrived for the Mrs Bike now. I can stop making excuses to not finish it. The only thing I'm waiting on now is the carbon water bottle cages for the XLab holder. Hopefully they'll come this week!
