Today was my first time trying out Stonyfield's FF yogurt, and OH MY it was soo good, the texture and sweetness was to die for! If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it. Of course, one can never go wrong with a warm toasted bread and some PB. (Check out Katie's awesome Nut Butter giveaway)
Guess what??? Yesterday I got back on the running horse!! Yeap, since the half-marathon in December I had taken a hiatus from running :( Believe me, I did not want to stop running but due to an injury in my gluteus muscle, I was forced to stop. It was literally "a pain in the butt"!!! I have learned that my body is prone to injury, so I know now how imperative it is to spend time stretching to prevent injury/help the process of healing of an injury. That is exactly why I want to begin to incorporate yoga in my workout routine. I came across this article, Yoga for Runners, which talks about all the great benefits Yoga can provide runners. "Running and yoga make a good marriage of strength and flexibility".
Do you do Yoga? Any helpful tips for a beginner like me?
For lunch, it was time to open this box!
