Every time I do yoga, I say to myself, "I really need to do more yoga." If I say it to myself enough, maybe it'll stick.
For the past couple of weeks, I've been feeling really stiff and sore after my weight-training workouts. I'm not sure if it's because the workouts are tougher, or if it's because I'm getting back into the swing of things after having my routine disrupted by travel, or what. (DOMS is mysterious. It could be the phase of the moon.) It's been playing hell with my running: I've had far more crappy runs, or days when I've just skipped running because I hurt too much, than I'd like.
So, yesterday morning I got up feeling like someone had stuck guitar tuning pegs in my hip flexors and cranked them really really tight. So, I threw on my DVD of "Yoga for Wimps", did half an hour of yoga, and felt unbelievably better. And this morning I went out and had the best run I've had in at least two weeks.
So, more yoga seems like a good idea. Maybe I can work out a short 10-15 minute routine that I can get myself to do every day.
Yes, I am thinking about exercise that I can do to recover from my exercise so that I can do more exercise. When did I become this person?
