Tabata & Yoga…

Tabata & Yoga…

Since my workout yesterday was so disappointing, I was planning to go for a run today instead of yoga.  But my right quad is still very tight, so I thought I’d mix it up a bit and do a bit of Tabata before yoga.  For those of you who haven’t heard of Tabata training, it’s […]

Today was another switch to spin class since my quad is in a knot…I also choose to go at lunch time instead of my regular ‘waking up before the rooster’ routine.  The class was pretty full so I was excited to get a good workout – a bigger class usually means more energy in the […]

I’ll start with one set of each group of exercises and then repeating a second set before I move onto […]
