The yoga class that I went to yesterday taught me my new favorite IT Band stretch.
My IT Bands get pretty tight regularly (especially when I am running a lot of hills and when I am doing speedwork). I have to stay on top of stretching and rolling them out to prevent them from getting too tight and this stretch will be added to my daily routine. It feels really good. Cross your legs and line your knees up on top of each other and reach forward with your hands while hinging at the hips. After you stretch out with your right knee on top, switch it up so that your left knee is on top.
I was super excited because when I walked into the yoga class I realized that one of my favorite running friends was the instructor. She is an incredible teacher and I will be a frequent attendee now.
Afterwards I had a special lunch date. We hadn’t had time to catch up one-on-one for a long time so it was nice to finally talk non-stop for 45 minutes straight.
PS Brooke loves salsa. Is that normal for a 2 year old to love salsa?
Right outside of the restaurant was a splash pad so Brooke got to run around for a bit in the sunshine before heading home.
My Friday night consisted of:
-an ice cream cone appetizer for the 50 minute drive south.
-dutch oven dining.
-a tunnel with beach chairs.
-with a movie screen inside.
Have a fabulous Saturday and I will see you SOON!
