Coastal Trail Runs this weekend are cancelled due to poor air quality, a good choice on the race director's part. It's still bad in the North Bay and fairly rough in rest of Bay area, take it easy everyone, I'm going to workout indoors this weekend. Good thoughts and prayers going out to all impacted by the fires.

Rock n Roll Half Marathon - San Jose PR! Followed pace leader who took us out at 6:18 pace. He slowed immediately after mile 1. I kept 6:46 pace as best I could - following other runners. At mile 10, pace leader past me again. I thought how could he. He was really 1:29 pace. I followed them for last 3 miles and past them at end. At GU at mile 4 and 8 (Honey Stinger). Perfect weather. No issues with cramps or pain. Felt strong throughout race. Speedwork on track for both intervals and tempo is paying off. The long runs and 70 mile weeks has my endurance up there.

Finished the 60-day Yoga Challenge at Bikram Yoga San Jose. That was 90 minutes of hot yoga every day for 60 days! Each class started with a breathing exercise, then proceeded into 26 postures, and ended with a breathing exercise. In between the floor postures, we did a 20-sec rest followed by a sit-up. It took discipline to attend class every day, especially on the bad days when I had no energy or desire.

Good job at the SF Marathon. Good pacing.
Profile: Kat Powell Monday, 7/24, 2017 3:44 pm
Just finished my 90 min yoga class at Bikram Yoga San Jose. Have been taking a 90 min class daily since July 1. This is their Summer 60 Day Challenge, where you take one yoga class a day for 60 days. These are brutally tough classes in a hot(105-108F, 50% humidity) room, where we start with a breathing exercise, do 26 postures , and finish with a different breathing exercise. So I call this Yoga 26.2. It feels like running a marathon and takes the same amount of mental tenacity. Missed my class Sunday, because of running SF Marathon and going to Marin park for group picnic, so will need to do a Double Yoga session in 1 day soon to make up for this. Have been working very hard to improve my balance and flexibility and strengthen my spine.
