My original plans for the day had changed at the last minute, and I had heard there was a free yoga class hosted by a local sporting goods store. So, I thought, this could be the alignment in the stars I needed to try one out.
Here's what I learned from my 1st yoga class:
1) So that's what those poses are... They included: a) cat, b) cow, c) child, d) plank, e) cobra, f) downward dog, g) warrior, h) tree and i) side angle poses.
2) My attention span and yoga don't seem to be a match.
3) I realized my balance wasn't great at times, but I got a very good core workout.
and 4) I was so tired from working late last night, the yoga mat looked very inviting to take a nap on.

Post-1st yoga class, I have to admit, I don't believe it's a match for me. But, I am game to try things out a few times just to try learn something new.
Later this day, I got in 4 miles.
