Happy Chinese New Year

Yes, I’m a bit behind in terms of the Chinese holidays and I’m way behind in terms of this blog.  I’ve done a bit of traveling but trouble with my knees continue to plague me. Happily, I am getting back to the gym.  While I haven’t worked my way back to actual kickboxing, I’m getting some weight work and conditioning done.

I’m also being optimistic and have restarted the Couch to 5K in 8 week podcast program.  Today I did my third run, or Day 1 of Week 2 of the program.  I downloaded the iPod app that allows me to listen to my own music while still getting the benefit of the podcast coaching.  Best of all, the app is free on iTunes.

Because my knees are so stiff [I’m having problems just sitting down and getting up without help], I’ve started yoga classes at my local Crunch gym.   I attended  my first class on Saturday morning…90 minutes!  It went well and I think I should definitely focus on flexibility for a while.

Tomorrow I have an early morning yoga class to start the day right.  wish me luck.

Hope springs eternal!
