Happy Monday Folks!
Yesterday, I went for a 4 mile run and noticed something very interesting starting to happen. I have started to practice yoga while I run.
I don’t mean poses- I’m not spontaneously doing a back bend or a sun sun salutation- I mean more along the lines of fundamentals. Breathing. Posture. Focus. Continuously monitoring and keeping everything in check.
When running, there are things a person should take note of every so often- breathing, pain, posture, energy levels, etc. On my run, I started to think of my yoga teacher and how we did a practice where we sacrificed our poses for a continuous breath. You know when you stretch or practice yoga and some positions your breathing may become more shallow or intense? Try to stretch without changing your breath- even inhale and exhale.
It may sound silly, but it’s always nice to find a new way to analyze your body in motion.
