My knee still bugged me tonight after only 1.5 miles on the treadmill, no matter what I did. Guess I'm officially injured. It SUCKS big-ass monkey balls!!! I know exactly what I did, which is almost more frustrating. Now, time to wait and heal and watch everything slide backwards. Anyway, I was able to do a quality weight session, followed by some Yoga. I included the poses I love below. I especially love Pigeon Pose right now b/c it's great for stretching both hip flexors and IT bands, which are verrrry tight on me. It's relaxing too. I also included some basic websites on Yoga for triathletes (title link), runners, and beginners (below). Some people use it for strength and stretching but I like to focus on it for stretching and then hit the weight room for strength. But different things work for different people. Here, I'm applying it for stretching only, which is great for injury prevention. Ideally, I would do Yoga for 20 minutes a day first thing when I wake up or before I go to bed, but most probably, I'll get it in 3x/week, which is better than nothing. What's your favorite pose?
