July Fitness

So far July has been a pretty good month for running.  This month I’ve run at least twice to now four times per week.  🙂  If you are wondering, I didn’t run the Kiwanis Midnight Race on 4th of July.  I really wanted to do the 10K and I just didn’t feel ready.

During this month, I’ve also tried to incorporate other activities like lower body and  yoga classes at our local YMCA.  You know that feeling you get after working out muscles you don’t normally?  The “I’m going to be sore tomorrow” feeling?  Yep, I was sore, and it felt good.    Last week I decided to try yoga instead.  I always forget how much I enjoy going to yoga.  After a yoga class I always feel refreshed and ready for anything.  It’s just rejuvenating.

The next event I’m looking forward to is GLOW Yoga by Lululemon on July 27th.  I’ve heard great things about the free yoga classes at Lululemon and at the Curtis Hixon Park.  So this should be fun.  Thanks to this lady, I’m signing up to do the Hooters 2 Hooters 10k on September 16th.  It seems like such a fun run starting at the Original Hooters location in Clearwater.  Having a race to look forward to is always a great way to keep me in track with my running.

How’s your summer fitness plan going?

Are you trying any new sports/races/classes?

    Sounds like you are doing great! I wanted to try and have some “A” race toward the end of the year, but I don’t know if it will happen. For now, I have a tri in Sept., and two 5ks. Let’s see if I find myself some trouble to get into. 🙂
