I say do more yoga...I don't think any guys is ever gonna complain about a vegan woman being to flexible
Well, my yoga for runners classes start next Monday.
Seriously though, I've been doing yoga for nearly two years off and on, and my flexibility has improved only a small amount. It has helped to improve my strength much more.
So I did the physiotherapist prescribed 1/2 hour run this morning. I did just short of 5k... took it really slow. No snow on the roads, and a break in the rain too! She told me to pretty much do a kegel through the whole run, which I tried my best to do. No pain or discomfort, but there never has been. She's added some lunges to my routine, and I think I'm going to start some core exercises on my own. Runners World has a special section on it this issue. Maybe I'll get a six pack.
This is one of the runners featured in the article, Carrie Tollefson. She has a great runner's physique. I'm getting close to that, and it's what I'm aiming for. Of course she's a sprinter, but we seem to have similar body types (she's 5'9" and 120 lbs)
