Stress in Life Has = So-So Yoga... but Still Practicing

Life has been stressful lately. It's busy time of year for me in my work cycles now (and I'm not even an accountant!) and I feel it in the room & on my mat. I went 3x last week and just felt overwhelmed and that I wasn't doing that great. And that I wanted the session to end every time (usually I just eat it all up!).

But I'm still going and still practicing, which is huge. Work is so busy that I should be spending the extra time I have working. But I know all too well how unbalanced life can feel without yoga & without exercise. So, I keep showing up. It's not pretty. And I feel wiped out on the mat. And I don't stay in my postures as long.

But I'm there. Still practicing. And proud to be doing it.

I'm also re-committing to running a 1/2 marathon in May so I'm going to need to step it up on the running which may take a bit away from the yoga... but my goal is to continue at least 3-4x/week and just work running in addition to yoga. Go me!!

Anyone else running & doing bik.ram?


  1. Wow, good for you and the half marathon. I would love to run, unfortunately my knees don't like it.
    I think it's wonderful that you are still coming to your mat and giving time to yourself.

  2. Wow, a 1/2 marathon! You go girl. I only made it to the hot room 4 times last week. I feel the same way you do right now. :)
