Since it’s my off day and no running, I decide to go to a yoga class (intermediate flow) instead. Call it a cross training if so desired.
I like yoga for it exercises both my mental and physical dimensions. Kinda like meditation and exercise combined in one. Here are a couple of take-aways from the class:
- like the “is the body talking to you? what is it saying? and “is the mind talking to you? what is it saying?” instructions
- staying in the moment in spite of the discomfort, as yoga would say meditating on the pain is challenging
- as a runner, my muscles are not toned systemically. Even my legs, they are trained to run long distance but not necessarily toned overall
- the whole body feels relaxed after the yoga class, so it was a good class like a good run
Do you cross train? what do you do?
