One interesting thing about not wearing a HR monitor, which I’ve been doing a little while now already, is that well I have to focus on something in logging the WO – putting its place in my personal history – and as a side effect I’m focusing more on how I feel during and then total time. One hour 26min today. And I notice I’m really ready … Continue reading Part of Superset Legs & freestyle Yoga
I had the space heater on & the room actually warmer than I wanted (I’ve gotten used to cooler interiors) since I was in there with a wet, outraged, post bath Theodora. So I did my normal practice of late, with the added eka pada sirsasana. My interlude between series poses & back bending was single 10/60 intervals of hanumanasana, the rack and urdhva D … Continue reading Got my yoga practice in!
This popped up in my recommended and seemed great for yesterday when I wanted a shorter WO after 2 fun hours the prior day. But in the end, I didn’t get to it & had a rest day. Obsessed with design lately. Reasons I loved this routine? 1) It’s all timed and 2) it’s shorter so I didn’t neglect my stretching. It’s also one of … Continue reading Total Body Quick Shred #3 & some yoga
Ended up taking a rest day yesterday, though I did get some sock designing and other stuff done. I couldn’t believe how sore my lower back was though, on the right. I kept stretching and rollering it periodically, during the day. Decided to do the very easiest part of Astanga, for the full body tuning, and something without any jumping whatsoever for today. If wearing … Continue reading Easy yoga & a quick upper body
It’s been a good Sunday! I was in bed with my laptop, about to preview this WO, when my new client called. I was already caffeinated and in the mood, so started working immediately after I got off the phone. If Lenula & Olivia both comment I know it’s probably worth checking out! I think this was my favorite Velvet Hammer workout ever! Finally, a … Continue reading Glute-A-Palooza!
Well… I’ve been a few days without using the Wahoo. I’ve gotta say I am still way less motivated. Like, every time I do exercise it’s an epic struggle just to do anything whatsoever. But you know, I had a healthy slice of lasagna for lunch, along with some buttered spinach I steamed. I kind of want to make cookies… We didn’t get that much snow, … Continue reading Velvet Buzzsaw & today’s workout
[EDIT UPDATE: I guess I could note it was 95min start to finish, including the savasana and putting equipment away. I rushed it a bit in that I did only 1 tick instead of three, with the excuse that I wanted to get to cooking a big, 2nd round of Buffalo chicken dip. I’d gotten the recipe out of the NYT collection of 29 dips, … Continue reading Astanga
Did the first part of Astanga, to the 3rd pose of primary as I do, when separating it out. I was gonna do a 20min Bender set after, but instead I switched to adlib non-vinyasa poses. I did wear my monitor but really, burn wise what it amounted was a walk around the block with maybe two mild hills. Not going to bother to post them. … Continue reading Restorative yoga – felt FANTASTIC
Had an extra, third rest day this week – yesterday. That’s ok. Even though I was unwilling. I kinda wanted to do legs, but I also knew I’d been neglecting the yoga lately. So I consulted the magic, online coin toss, lol. Warm-up: 10/30×6=4min jump rope Last practice I’d done two 10/60 Urdhva Ds @ the wall, w/ equal rest after each, before doing the … Continue reading Excellent Astanga practice today
Finally got around to doing this earliest in Julia’s YouTube post log. I don’t know if any practice versions were posted earlier and deleted, but something tells me not. Was really good. I could feel my dental infection a little bit, though I think it’s better than it was somewhat days ago… My time was just over 53min to the vid’s 32:48. There were some … Continue reading Full Body Burner & Yoga
