I kind of had a stressful/crazy week so I was super excited for the weekend, especially because I had a bunch of fun things planned. I started my weekend off with a fun Friday night CrossFit class. I increased my weight from #15 to #20 on my OH walking lunges and I’m hoping to get to the RX #25 within the next few weeks.
On Saturday, Heather and I went to a yoga inversions workshop at The Ridge with our favorite yoga instructor, Gena. We warmed up with a vinyasa flow for the first hour then we started getting into our inversions. Our first inversion was a headstand. Heather made it look easy but it was tricky! I kept flipping over and landing in bridge pose. Finally, after a few tries I was able to get into the headstand without flipping over.
After our headstands, we got into handstands and plow pose. It was a great workshop and I definitely learned a lot. Heather and I went on a post-yoga 2 mile run but neither of us were really feeling it. On Wednesday night, we ran before yoga and we both agreed that a pre-yoga run is way more strategic.
After our run I was putting my car key back on my key holder and I somehow managed to split my fingernail which was both painful and disgusting. I also managed to slice my hand open with a butter knife on Tuesday and cut my finger with a really sharp knife on Saturday night. I’d like to think I’m “accident prone” but really I am just extremely clumsy.
I was up bright and early on Sunday morning for some ice hockey. My friend Ashley organized a game against the team she coaches and they were awesome. I forget what the score was but they definitely beat us.
After hockey, I came home and got ready to head out on a snowshoeing adventure with Heather. We headed up to Hyalite canyon to hike the Palisade Falls trail. I actually hiked this trail with my mom in September which was a lot of fun. I was a little worried about getting cold but Heather and I were actually getting hot from wearing so many layers and exerting so much energy. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time.
