Last night I finally knocked another one off our summer bucket list.
Do yoga outdoors.
A coworker of mine had been talking about the free yoga on Jonas Green Park along the Severn River for a while now hosted by Kaya Karma Yoga Adventures, and I kept getting caught up in other things or it would rain. Finally, last night was a perfect night. So I dragged Adam on a 9 mile bike ride then to yoga. The 9 mile ride was pretty uneventful on the B&A trail, but was really good in that it didn’t seem hot and I pushed myself on speed. As much as one can push themselves on speed on a freakin’ mountain bike. The Huffster and I have a love/hate relationship like that.
It was quite simply the perfect start to the holiday. You can bet I will be adding Tuesday night yoga to my workouts regularly.
My muscles felt super tight and while the class didn’t have the usual flow that my favorite yoga classes do, I definitely pushed my practice just a little bit and the stretching just felt oh so good. While at first I was afraid the class was going to move too slow for me and be geared towards beginners, Christine, the instructor, definitely gave us ways to take different poses a step further.
After yoga we headed home for dinner, Hells Kitchen and then met up with some friends down at Rams Head.
Dinner was leftovers (again) but oh em gee. They were so good. So very, very good.
We stayed out a little late (past my bedtime) at Rams Head but we were in great company and I knocked a couple off my Around the World Club card which I’m trying to finish before I’m 30.
I enjoyed the Sierra Nevada, but what I really wanted was a Fordham Wisteria Wheat but they were all out the Sierra Nevada was a good go to beer though – I’d drink it again. I ended the night with a Woodchuck Granny Smith (so sweet!). Twelve beers down, 88 to go.
Today we’re off for a 4-5 mile run over at Quiet Waters Park then brunch. We have a party to go to that was supposed to be in Bethesda but my pal is still without power so she moved the party to Annapolis instead – then later, we’re going to go sailing and watch the fireworks on the harbour! Fun!
How are you spending your fourth of July?
