Easy day today – technically a rest day, but I did do some yoga. I’ll admit that I’ve been slacking on the yoga since I started the running program and wow, did I feel it today! My muscles were very tight and it seems like I’ve lost quite a bit of flexibility in just a month or so. I always have trouble finding time to balance both running and yoga, but I really need to do a better job. If I stop running, I lose endurance quickly. If I stop yoga, I lose flexibility. I want both, so I need to make time for both.
My new Mountain HardWear Kelvinator down jacket and Typhoon rain shell arrived! I was far too busy with work to do anything other than check quickly and make sure I’d received the right items, but I’m looking forward to trying them on. Initial thought: The Kelvinator is a much prettier blue than I was expecting from the internet photos. I was a bit hesitant to go with light blue since the jacket I took to Peru was light blue and never came clean. This one is a actually a bit darker and matches the color of my office walls. Nice!
