An active pause

My back still feels crunky so I decided to skip lifting for today, do 30 minutes of intervals on the hamster wheel (aka elliptical) and then some yoga. The intervals were effective, and the yoga felt friggin necessary– I guess it’s been a long time since I stretched at all! Everything was tight, especially in my upper back/shoulders and my hips/glutes/hamstrings. Hey, those are the places that are giving me grief! Guess I found the source of that problem– and the solution.

So after yoga I like to take a nice shavasana and use that 5-10 minutes to clear my mind with a mini meditation, where I just try to let all the random thoughts go. The problem is, I often come up with interesting things to write about during my workout, and then by clearing my mind I forget them…
