It's quite dreary over here in the mitten state.. I keep on trying to tell myself we need this rain and drear before it can be summer but...I'm not quite believing it myself yet!
So I told ya'll yesterday that I've been in/am in somewhat of a workout funk. Truth is that my hip is still giving my problems.. I'm beginning to think it may be my shoes, so new shoes it is today! Thanks to a 20% coupon and a gift card, cuz that's how I roll nowadays!
What's your fave running brand shoe?
I've strictly been an Asics girl but the last two shoes I've run in have been Adidas and New Balance. Let's see what I bring how today!
If I workout 5 - 6 times a week, I want to create the biggest calorie deficit that I can, and if you've ever worn your HRM during a session well, you know what it's going to say.
However in my great funk, I ventured out and decided to give Bikram a try. Bikram, because I knew it would be in a hot room and allow me to sweat.
What I didn't anticipate:
- was the smell. A combination of warmed up split pea soup and co-op.
- sweaty man balls in front of my face
- obscene grunting from said man and his sweaty balls.
I didn't go back.
I skipped the first week of Yoga X, but decided to give it a try this past week.
I'm not gonna say I loved it. I did it for 45 minutes before my mind started to wander, at which I stopped the DVD.
What I enjoyed about this particular DVD is that it was challenging, fast pasted, and perhaps a tad on the cardio side? I can't really judge since I'm no yoga expert but I was sweating by the end. I liked it enough, I'll be doing it again next Sunday. how 'bout that?
Anyone else have any fave cardio type yoga DVD's they want to recommend?
