#100happydays   Friday is Yoga Day

Fridays are going to be yoga day for the Blister Sisters during August. We are getting limber for the “Big Event”. There is one thing we really need to do more of is stretching and yoga is the perfect solution for us. Between the poses and the breathing we really need the benefits of yoga.

There are many types of yoga and I can’t really say that we do any particular one. We do enjoy a slower pace yoga where we can really hold the pose. (I found this great little image here.)

Yoga for Runners

Yoga for Runners

Runners and yoga just go together as explained in the Yoga Journal’s article by Baron Baptiste and Kathleen Finn Mendola.

“During the course of an average mile run, your foot will strike the ground 1,000 times. The force of impact on each foot is about three to four times your weight. It’s not surprising, then, to hear runners complain of bad backs and knees, tight hamstrings, and sore feet.

The pain most runners feel is not from the running in and of itself, but from imbalances that running causes and exacerbates. If you bring your body into balance through the practice of yoga, you can run long and hard for years to come. Although yoga and running lie on opposite ends of the exercise spectrum, the two need not be mutually exclusive. In fact, running and yoga make a good marriage of strength and flexibility.”

There are other good articles on line about yoga and running and don’t forget Pinterest. The best thing is to find a yoga studio that is geared for athletes.

One day I’ll post picture of us doing yoga, but we have to get a lot better at it before I do!
