This class is kicking the crap out of me...in a good way. I was pouring sweat by the time I left the studio and I felt that workout for the next 2 days. The biggest challenge of the night was attempting Eight Angle Pose:
Thursday and Friday were spent recovering from yoga. To give you an idea of how much my core muscles hurt after that: I had to curl into the fetal position if I sneezed!
Saturday was a fun day. The Husband and I visited the local zoo and spent a couple of hours wandering around and looking at all the animals. My favorite was the camels. He preferred the bonobos!
Distance: 10.63 miles

My next long run will be the Full Moon Half Marathon on Saturday.
After I got home, took a shower and chugged a nice, cold fruit smoothie, I crammed The Beast (aka my ancient trail bike) into the car and drove 40 minutes south to my dad's house. As I've mentioned before, he's planning to attempt a century ride 5 weeks from now and he's really been slacking on his training. Our original plan was to ride approximately 18 miles round-trip, with a pit stop at the beach where I'm considering attempting my first sprint triathlon next summer, but between my aching legs and his forgetting to eat all day before our ride, we cut it back to 11.5 miles.
Distance: 11.49 miles
Avg. Speed: 11.4mph
After going full-throttle most of the day, I crashed hard last night!
I spent tonight catching up on all the chores I neglected all weekend. I can happily say that my laundry is done, my kitchen is clean and my shoe collection is no longer scattered all over the house! All that's left to do is iron a few things so I have something to wear to work tomorrow! On that note, I hear my dryer going off...time to iron (my least favorite chore of all).
What's your least favorite household task?
