The remainder of my weekend consisted of more yoga, sushi, lots of work and some puppy play time.
I went out for sushi on Saturday night and it was blissful. Sushi Guru has THE BEST SUSHI in all of Charlotte. If you live here…go!
After sushi I convinced myself that Zoey still fit in my arms (totally, right?) and then got in bed early with a cup of tea. I am so happy I decided to go to bed early because I got 9 hours of sleep and felt so amazing when I woke up today.
I subbed out my Sunday morning yoga class so that I could attend a workshop with David Regelin.
David is a NYC-based teacher who mostly travel teaches now. He has kind of broken from the power yoga scene and isn’t really on board with heat, music, “workout yoga”, etc….but I completely loved what he offered. It was pure, practical and approachable.
I took his “Physical Origami” workshop this morning and I learned so much in my three hours with him. I am at this point in my practice and with my teaching where I am really craving more knowledge and to be a student again. I am looking to do my 500-hour teacher training within the next 12 months.
While David doesn’t play music in his classes, I do! (Let it be stated for the record that I go both ways when it comes to music + yoga…sometimes there’s nothing I love more than a silent practice.) Here is my playlist for the week. I had to leave a few songs out because they weren’t on Spotify but you still get most of it here.
And finally, the weekly workout recap. The combo of being sick the first half of the week + crazy busy with work made for a low-key week but it was just right.
3 rounds of 400 meter run, 20 wall balls, 10 wall ball sit ups and 10 pull ups
4 rounds of 10 deadlifts, 10 hang cleans and 10 push ups (barbell stuff at 75#)
Cash out: 20 flights of stairs up and down
I make my clients run the stairs on the regular but don’t use them often in my own workouts. I did this workout right after training a client that I made run stairs for days so I paid myself back! Such an amazing workout!
4.5 mile run
Double Unders and Ab Mat Sit Ups…finished in 9:45.
After the quick Annie WOD to get my heart rate up I did a bunch of strength work with back squats, bench press, bicep curls, overhead extensions and single arm rows.
Yoga Workshop + 5 mile run
After spending four hours sitting at the computer, I had to move my body! I went for the most amazing run. It was 55, sunny and there were tons of flowers and trees blooming. Everything was so green and colorful.
What is a goal you have for the next 12 months?
