D.C. got dumped with a late winter snow storm Sunday into Monday and lucky me I got a two-hour delay this morning. Those extra two hours of sleep were the perfect way to start a Monday morning. I felt more energized at work than I had in weeks. Score one for extra sleep.
Unfortunately, the snow meant I couldn't get out for a run to test out my knee and there was no way I was walking in the frigid temps to the gym when I got home from work to use the dreadmill. So instead, I decided I would chill out with some yoga.
I busted out my yoga mat, threw my favorite yoga CD into my computer, turned off the lights in my room and went to town. One of the perks of being a yoga instructor is the ability to decide to host an impromptu class, with myself as the only participant. I did a normal hour long classes, working through a bunch of my favorite poses and working on some of my favorite stretches. I felt awesome afterward and was so glad I got some exercise in.
I had a really awesome weekend, hanging out with a bunch of friends I hadn't seen in a while and going to see Confessions of a Shopaholic on Saturday with some of the girls. It was such a cute movie. I highly recommend it if you're in the mood for a good chick flick. We stopped at Borders after the movie where I picked up The Complete Book of Running for Women. I was in the mood for a good running read. I haven't started it yet, but I'll write a review when I get through it.
The MBBC is underway and I'm doing an OK job earning points. I'm not expecting to win, but hoping to use the challenge as a way to motivate myself to get some good cross-training in as I work on getting over my knee issues.
