If asked over the summer, I would’ve told you November would be a recovery month after I ran the Monumental Marathon. Well, I didn’t run the marathon but I did get the recovery month so … winning? (Not really.) If you missed the whole story, hop back to this post for an update.
While I had some free time this month, I tried something new: hot yoga. For years I’ve avoided it — I hate being hot. Hate. Also, hot yoga is intimidating. And long. My understanding was that it was a silent 90 minutes and that’s really not the case (at least not always).
Ummm so as it turns out I really like it. And if I end up better acclimated to heat and more flexible, that seems like a win all-around. I suspect I’ll only be able to squeeze in one session a week, but I’m hoping to stick with it
This was super-light month … Coach put me on a two-week recovery block and then two weeks of easy build up.
