Hello lovely readers! I have had the last two days as holiday from work following Bath Half marathon on Sunday. It was a great atmosphere on the day and I got round in one piece! There will be a full post about my day and my race day tips tomorrow so check back.
Last week was the final week of the #InversionsMakeYouHot Instagram challenge. I was a bit poorly half way through last week so I played catch up on Friday. I have learnt that I need to work on my hamstrings now that Bath Half is over I can work on lengthening them for straighter legs in arm balances (like grasshopper pose above) and standing balances. For some reason I really struggle with this, I have improved so much from where I originally started though.
I have loved the handstand variations again this week and really feel that my handstands have improved so much this month from almost daily practice. I also faced my fear with headstands and I can hold one pretty well now, I just need to work on the transitions in and out of the pose. The headstand float down is a great challenge and a fab core workout. I will be incorporating this into my yoga flows where I can.
For March I am working on my sun salutation variations, handstands (of course) and standing balances. Let me know what you're working on!
