How’s your morning looking? Mine’s flowing right along.I’m terrible when it comes to stretching before or after runs, so today I forced myself to do a little bit of yoga. I’ve been packing in the miles lately and tomorrow I have a big run. And THEN we’re going to sit on a plane to the UK after that! So, I figured my legs could use a good stretch.
Unfortunately I was not able to stretch them as insanely as these women from yogadownload.com. How does Instructor Rose keep her leg so straight? And also: how does she keep her non-ponytail hair and bangs perfectly in place during downward dog?These are the things I ponder during yoga. I’m not a very good student!
Moving right along to our weekly dose of tacos:As I mentioned yesterday, we’re cleaning out the fridge before we depart. Yesterday I looked at two lonely bell peppers, an over-ripe avocado, and a half-empty jar of sour cream… and knew that it was taco time.The main filling was slow-cooked pork and black beans. But, who cares about the filling? I’m all about the toppings. Greek yogurt, salsa, and cilantro! Yum.Every time I talk about tacos I get asked about our fabulous taco holders: here they are. Best $8 you will ever spend 😉Time to go wrap up my last day of work before we leave — and then it’s time to get packing!
- Do you usually make time to stretch before/after a run?
- Do you run/exercise with your hair down?
- Important question: What’s a good brand of chunky salsa? We tried this Frog Ranch salsa last night and thought it was terrible. (Side note: what kind of name is Frog Ranch, anyways?) Need better salsa in my life ASAP.
