Yoga combined with Rucking, Crossfit Endurance training

Adding GoRuck training to my schedule, by combining Crossfit with endurance running and rucking with 30# backpack (Ruck).

The running consists of developing a running technique from Crossfit Endurance using lower heel shoes and maintaining proper form using toe strike with soft heel landing while bringing the heel towards buttocks quickly.  Also incorporate cycling after intervals; 6-8 200 meter runs with 2 minute rest between, then after a brisk bike ride for a few miles.

Midday I loosen up with a yoga class.

PM exercise is crossfit.

Easter is rest day

Today is rest day, but will walk the dog this afternoon.  Weather is nice a little cool early this AM.

After Easter I plan on resuming my yoga teaching at the Community Center.  I purchased a new mat with mat towel that has grips on bottom.  Manduka is the brand.  Mat is same thick black one that I love.

There was a small group that missed the practice and they say on Facebook that they look forward to yoga and need it much.

I am hoping attendance is more regular that previously.

I am introducing a prep program with joint freeing exercises prior to the asanas.  Community yoga has many that are just not willing to do the more intense Ashtanga.

As students improve, I will introduce the SS-A and B then the standing poses; this plan will be modified to suit level of class.

It will be fun and healthy exercise, too.

Although many say that Ashtanga yoga is all one needs, I have found that adding resistance training using bar bell weights is a welcome addition for full body healthy.  The two are good together.

Again have a Happy Easter for those that read this blog.

I do not have many followers, but writing about my life is healthy too.

Namaste…..
