Everyone has been telling me that it’s inadvisable to run every day, and further, that I’ll hurt myself if I do it.
Counterpoint: It isn’t like I’m running long distances and I’m not at risk for damaging my joints because of weight-bearing or anything.
That being said, I’ve got no interest in damaging myself! I’ve come way too far to have a painful or suffering-inducing setback.
And so: Yoga.
On my not-running-days.
I bought two DVDs — p90x yoga, which I’ve done before with my mom, and Karen Voight yoga, which I’ve also done with my mom. The p90x is super long but a really good workout, and the KV can be broken into shorter pieces and is very instructive.
I’m hoping to do the longer one when I have a chance, and the shorter one when I have less of a chance.
So I got a yoga mat, and a yoga towel in case I start slipping on the mat, and I’m ready to give it a whirl.
Anybody have tips for beginning yogis? I’m open to suggestions!
