Saturday was my long run of 16.5 miles (2500ft of elevation) around the lakes. We started super early so that we could go to yoga afterwards. I just wanted to mention how lame I am in that I gave up running with friends so that I could run earlier and still get to yoga. But I really am glad that I did because I believe the yoga is making me be able to run pain free.

YOGA: Like I said...three classes this week. But more importantly I wanted to tell you that I got up in wheel pose all by myself. No blocks. No nothing. Just me. I did it twice and the second time I didnt stay up very long but dang I was so proud of myself! That pose really isnt very difficult but I had so much trouble with it that I was on a mission to get it done. Now mind you, I do still have a lot of work to do on it but I am improving all the time.
Another new to me pose is the Tripod. Which is also known as pre-headstand. Seriously, how hard can it be?! When I was a kid I did about a million headstands! Surely my body remembers...right? Wrong.

Oh, and by the way, Rik got up into tripod without much difficulty at all and even got a good job from the teach. Haha. He was pretty pleased with himself.
EATS: I have really struggled with my eating this week. PMS is no excuse but its all I got. I've lost 3lbs so far so Im not doing to bad but I have not kept up with the logging of my foods. Must. Do. Better. With. That. This. Week.

|I think I had hummus everyday this week. See the brownie for dessert?!|
|Favorite food from Trader Joes...I think.|
Anyone doing anything cool on Wednesday for 12-12-12??
I dont want to run 12 miles that day so I am going to settle for a 12k run!
