Last night was our first Yoga class. I wasn’t sure what to expect, only having done Yoga on the Wii. The interesting thing to me – is that what I learned on the Wii did help! (And Seriously, who woulda thunk it?)
The instructor was faced with the challenge of walking into a room where she knew no one and knew nobody’s levels, and teaching a class. She started out with asking if anyone knew anything about yoga (not really – unless you count the Wii). So she worked on teaching us some basic poses.
I found the bottom of my foot was cramping quite a bit during some of the exercises. I asked the instructor about it afterwords – she didn’t have any ideas except “eat more potassium.” – Everyone’s favorite generic-cramp answer. A quick Google after I got home did let me know that I wasn’t a total freak – that others had the same issue as well and even proposed some solutions.
Overall it was a good experience – I am looking forward to seeing what she does now that she knows what our class experience-level is.
As far as running is concerned, I am up for a 6 mile run today. I was awake this morning to go, but my buddy that is running the Marine Corps Marathon with me wants to run together once a week – so we are supposed to meet up tonight. It will be nice to have company.
I have also been contemplating trying to get my RRCA Coaching Certification next year. I don’t know what I would do with it but it still strikes me as a good move. I have also been reading up on “Chi-Running.” It struck me that since I am doing some of it due to the VFF’s, it might be worth learning more.
