A Stretch of Yoga

Today marks the last day of my Yoga Challenge.

And before you ask I did not do it everyday.  Yep that’s right, but no I didn’t fail.  Well not in my books.

You see I only workout 6 days a week.  I always allow myself a rest day.  Sunday is normally my rest day, but because we traveled down to Melbourne on Friday, I chose to have Friday as my rest day instead.
The other thing I should mention is that I did actually set my alarm early on Friday morning, but I slept through it.  I must have been that tired.  I can’t believe I didn’t hear it.  Oh well I must of really needed the sleep in.

So my week of yoga stretched out like this:
Monday – Namaste Yoga Extended Leg Balance

Tuesday Namaste Yoga Head to Knee (after a 17km run)

Wednesday – Essence of Living – Beginners.  This one is by Michelle Merrifield who is an Australian Yogi living on the Gold Coast

Thursday – Namaste Yoga Dancing Sun
Friday – n/a
Saturday – Katy Appleton Geri Body Yoga


My Bridge pose is pretty pathetic, but I do love me some Tree Pose.

Sunday – After my 18km run NTC Stretch Guide by Shawna Johnson

 I must say that I have enjoyed this Stretch of Yoga.  I guess because I’m at the highest point of half marathon training for RunMelbourne in 2 weeks time, it has really helped to balance out my tired muscles.

Tomorrow I start my next Challenge, but you’ll have to wait until then to find out what it is.
