Changing My Ways for 2013

Hello there.  I wanted to pop in for a short post.

If you “like”  me on Facebook, you most likely saw this post yesterday:

After I posted this, I got a little sad because I don’t expect to come anywhere near this mileage for 2013.  Running almost 413 miles in 2012 left me with a huge sense of accomplishment.  It’s strange because my yoga accomplishments in the coming year probably won’t be able translate into something as concrete as miles.  My yoga accomplishments will be abstract, like shifts in perspective and things of that nature.  I can be a little bit left-brained when it comes to personal records and data, so I might struggle with not being able to track and record the same way with yoga.  I do, however, think my brain will welcome this change as I learn to stop obsessing over numbers.

I can’t wait to see what the next 6 months will bring, and I want to thank you in advance for reading about my journey and supporting me along the way!

While you probably won’t be seeing as much running stuff on the ole blog in 2013, you can definitely expect to see plenty more recipeas!

  1. what a great accomplishment, I bet yoga could be measured in flexibility. that is something I think yoga always provides me when I do it.

  2. If I had to choose between miles run and being the queen of the yoga studio, I would definitely choose the latter! I’m always jealous of others’ flexibility, not necessarily their miles run. :)

    Just wait until a student comes up to you and tells you how much your class has helped shift his/her perspective and life. I bet that will feel even better than running 413 miles. That’s what I’m waiting for, anyway : )

  4. I think yoga shows improvement in different ways. I bet you can’t measure running by how many headstands you can do, or what variation of crow you’re able to reach! It’s just a matter of adjusting your thought process to the new situation, and I know you can do that!

  5. When I settle into a consistent yoga practice, the biggest improvement I see in myself is my sense of calm. Maybe rate yourself before bed every night on a scale from 1-10, then you can chart how your calmness increases as you progress in YTT. That way, you still get your numbers! If anyone’s missing running updates, you can always pass ‘em along to me ;) I took some time away from the blog to really be present in my time off last week, but I’m starting marathon training in a little over 2 weeks!

  6. I know you can do it! Miles run aren’t necessarily a good measure of how strong of a runner someone is. Many people who run a ton of miles end up injured because they ignore other things, such as stretching or strength training. I can’t wait to hear about your growth as a new yogi!

    the left brain side of me (aka most of me, boo) always is searching for a “concrete” way to measure a workout too. i like to do a lot of workouts i don’t have a mileage for at the end like step class, interval training, yoga, and spin class. well i suppose i could get mileage out of spin, but the bikes at my gym don’t have it! getting used to going by how we feel post-workout is a good thing to get used to i think. after all, sometimes i feel like a rockstar when i do the step mill for 4 miles and sometimes i feel like blah. i still did the same mileage either way! i can’t wait to read about your yoga journey either especially considering the fact that i’m not really a runner.
