Day 316 Done
Massive shout out tonight goes to Jill and Lorna. Great to run with you both for the first time. Awesome running with you both in the place I grew up in. Been a few years since I've ran round Lhanbryde. Plus well done Jill who has just taken up running only a few weeks ago. Keep the good work up and ill see you both again soon for another run. ♀️♀️♂️ Want to join me for a run? Then all you have to do is get in touch. Simple as that
my main squeeze and early #monday#morning great friend, @cloverleafann just before we head our separate ways for the day. She got me out the door for #morningrun streak day 124. I made her toast with peanut butter. Fair trade agreement on a local level. Somebody tell Don we can all get along. **Note the ugly holiday attire.
also, big thanks to @gregrobinson for the meet up. It made the darkness and #rain almost unnoticeable. I've already forgotten about the pain of feeling tired.
#streakrunner day 3306 is done!
4 mile maintenance loop and tights. classic PNW uniform.
Last week one of my yoga students mentioned seeing a feature on Meghan Markle and yoga (in my least favourite paper, that I never read). She had done a studio photo shoot, wearing a flowing white outfit and looked perfectly serene in every asana. Her comment to me was is that what yoga is meant to be.. Sigh
This is a photo of me during my 60mins vinyasa practice this evening from @yogaglo Kathryn Budig Funky Side Crow Flow, its how I look in most my practice hair flopping everywhere unwavering gaze (if someone walked into the room it would not shift) No filter. These hippy twisty balances are never easy for me, especially being on day 18 of #runeveryday December. It takes being 100% present to keep my legs glued to my arm and it's took years of practice to get them there (practising for 10 years) . That mind-body connection isn't just from an asana practice but from a much harder meditation practice as well . We need to keep emphasising that yoga is a practice, it's a long-term journey. It's not about looking angelically serene in a advanced asana like you've just floated into it; but about showing up to your mat and trying to stay 100% present on it, how you look or appear is irrelevant.
Today I was a few minutes late for the group run with co-workers due to some last minute issues at work . But still I managed to catch these two ladies and had a good run with them ♀️♀️♀️! I feel thankful every single time after these trainings. Because of running I have meet so many new co-workers of different professions and ages from other departments of our hospital... who manage to keep a smile on their face and kindness in their heart allthrough not always easy life !
"Non-runners may not believe how beneficial running can be, but it's true. Running has rocked people's lives-improving the way they look, the way they feel, the way they think, and the way they look at life!"
Sometimes my pictures turn out really funny or what others may think is silly. I decided to share one of the silly looking pictures from the 10-12 I took this morning. Selfies while running aren't very easy!
