First off, I’m not big into yoga. I’ve only ever done yoga as part of another class. I took a pi-yo (pilates yoga) class when Jones was a baby, but that’s it.
It felt amazing to walk into the hot, hot room. I can’t imagine enjoying that in summer, but right now when I’ve felt cold for a week, it felt great. I was afraid I’d have trouble with the heat and everyone told me just to sit if I needed to. Apparently, just staying in the room the first few times is an accomplishment.
Surprisingly, I managed to complete the whole workout. I was dripping wet by the end and had a bit of trouble grabbing onto slippery body parts, but it.was.awesome. I found the balance poses a challenge, but that’s a personal issue LOL. I also had trouble with some of the floor work because my ankles, calves, and quads are tight, but I managed to do every exercise at my own level. Today, I mildly sore in places I didn’t even know could get sore, but it’s nothing like the soreness after a marathon, so I’m liking it.
Will I do it again? Yep. It’s hard to work it into my schedule and I got dehydrated yesterday (I was rushed to pick up the kids and then we were out all afternoon), but the workout was a nice change from running and I think it will eventually help with my running. I’m hoping to manage it once a week after the holidays, at least while it’s cold out.
