Cats, Dogs, Trees & the Mountains; with Nature…..then VROOM!!!

Wow! That yoga workout was amazing, I suddenly realize who I am and I am more in touch with my inner breath, and at one with nature, I felt like I was floating on a cloud and coming out of my body……… ha ha ha ha …….oooookay I’ll cut that crap out now, please tell me that you didn’t fall for that?

I went through the twelve yoga poses that I posted earlier today. Now, I am classed as obese and then when you throw yoga into the mix, well just picture a pig trying to break dance and there you have it. It was anything but graceful, balanced and I was as flexible as brick.

I must admit afterwards I did feel very relaxed, refreshed and loose. I wobbled my way through it and I am going to be consistent with it until I can master the poses. I am sure that when I am a little lighter I’ll be like a chicken doing the moonwalk.

…..then VROOM!

I also tackled the interval training. Actually I thought it was going to be a bit soft and not challenging but boy was I wrong! After the 4th set I was like, “water, water!” ::in a groaning voice:: I managed to push through to the 8th set and to my oasis of water, a pint of cold water.

If anyone could advise me I was wondering if this is a good mix; doing yoga and then into intense intervals? Maybe you can leave a comment with your suggestions.
