Hello, Bakasana.

It’s been a couple days and I already miss having some cardio (ahem, running) in my life.

I mean, just by giving myself a break from running doesn’t mean I’m gonna stop running altogether! I’m actually itching to run a HIIT 2-miler tomorrow morning. I might do just that, honestly.

Also, I think I’m a tad bit excited for the Beat the Blerch 2015 being announced! I heard about this just last year and am making it a MUST do on my running list this year! Signing up.. as soon as I have the funds! With Vegas and Disneyland on the horizon… eek. I just can’t wait to get these trips aside (although I’m looking very much forward to them!!), then save some money + sign up for Beat the Blerch and the Girls on the Go half!

I really have plans to get my butt into gear and get back to training for the half either in May or June.

Another update: I HAVE ACHIEVED THE BAKASANA (in full), or the “Crow Pose”.

Granted, I can only last about 2 seconds until I can’t take it anymore. BUT STILL. I was absolutely ecstatic! Just two weeks ago (or like, since ever), I could not even try to lift my toes off the ground. My core and my arms were bust. But as of yesterday, I have achieved letting my feet go off the ground!

It’s such a weird – but awesome – feeling to describe. Once I felt confident in myself, looked ahead, took careful breaths, I eventually sank into the pose. Yoga is changing me day by day; I am a believer. I love where I’m headed.

The next step? Mastering the pose. πŸ˜‰

I hope that everyone has had a great Monday!

Till next time,

P.

  1. I LOVE arm balances – especially crow pose! I’m glad you’re enjoying yoga so much and seeing progress in your poses. Yoga really is a wonderful practice. I wish I could do it more but running is still my first love (aside from the people in my life that is!) and takes up most of my free time.
