After the 10Km, Steve and I went for lunch. Sunday lunches can be a bit of a challenge for me with most of the pubs serving roasts as I have to eat a gluten free diet and I have recently turned vegan so the menu choices can be tricky. But, we really wanted to be somewhere with an open fire so we could heat up from the run and so a pub was our preferred venue.
Over the last 2 years I have significantly reduced my animal produce intake and for the last 6 months or so I have been eating a vegan diet 99% of the time. From January 1st I have made the complete transition, and I feel great for it. Yet, this often means Sunday lunch has to be made up from the sides.
Steve and I spent some time planning what races we could do as part of our quest to complete a medal-winning race each month in 2017. Just looking at the possibilities was really exciting.
I still had a yoga class to make and I was booked in for 5pm. I was determined to go but seriously thought it would be hopeless. Turns out that it was THE BEST class I have done all week!
It was hot, humid and busy. I positioned myself on the back row but really could have been rocking it up at the front. I’m not sure it was because I was so warmed up from the run, or full of energy from the big tastey lunch, or just because I went into the hot room with no expectation. Whatever the reason I loved the class, completed every posture and held them to time; and it felt fabulous!

I’m going to sleep well tonight.
