I feel like this week has flown ran by! Do you?

Apparently, I spent a lot of time on the couch yesterday! Guilty. First it was to ice.

Then, Vegas crawled on my lap while I was messing around on the lapper/watching TV. I’m not usually his person, but my roommate was out late and I was second runner up.

Have you had a See’s Candy Chocolate Sucker? Because they are amazing – super chocolate-y and last a long time. TWSS.

I had a meeting this morning and couldn’t make it to my planned yoga class. But I am on a mission to stay true to my word and do yoga once a week at least.

I went to do my usual Online Yoga For Runners, but it was acting weird and wouldn’t play. A quick YouTube search later I found this “A Deep Release for the Hips, Hamstrings and Lower Back Yoga”. Personally, I don’t consider this yoga – it’s stretching inspired by yoga. It’s not a workout or a strength session (unlike some yoga classes).

I figured I’d stop the video if I was bored (per usual). But the stretch was so good I did the whole thing.

It is the BEST HIP STRETCH SESSION OF MY LIFE!!!! If you have tight legs DO THIS.

Question: Have you tried a See’s Candy lollipop yet?

    I use this video all the time! After a vicious lingering hamstring injury my physical therapist recommended it. Save me!

    This vid sounds exactly like what I’ve been looking for in a yoga session. I can’t wait to do it when I get home! Thanks!

    Hi Monica – just going through your site for some bits to get me motivated and back on track (or on road, rather). Have just finished the stretch video and have to agree – it’s fantastic! Thanks for sharing!
