    I know planks are good for me but I don't think I'm ever going to say I love them. My abdominals have been sliced open too often. First for a hysterectomy about 20 years ago then for harvesting the tissue for the reconstruction after my mastectomy. That incision then herniated and had to be re-sticted. Twice.

    Maybe some yoga would help with my core strength. What do you think, Zoe? I did Hatha yoga years ago. Which discipline would you say would be a good way to get re-started?

    Yes, agreed.

    Considering your level of fitness and your general joie de vivre, I would say that you would very likely like power yoga and/or astanga yoga a fair bit. these work a lot of core muscles and are a lot of fun (lots of movement). And in SD, you can't go wrong.

    I'll look into some studios in your general area (SD) and talk to my friend who teaches in the area (she's currently on hiatus from teaching) about the good instructors that she knows. then make a recommendation from there.

    Here's a video of some astanga. Don't worry, all postures are modified. And the guy on the right has slightly better alignment than the guy on the left -- but only someone who knows what to look for knows why and how. LOL

    Thanks, Zoe. Those look like a cross between yoga and burpees. Could be fun.

    Well I got all my fitness stuff in for the week with the exception of today. I didn't get out and do my sprints. I spent time with my Dad today primalizing his pantry and really explaining PB to him. Again. He's finally ready to make the big switch. I'm so pleased. It's too bad that it took the onset of painful peripheral neuropathy for him to figure out that diabetes is not something to ignore and hope it will go away.

    Then I took my BFF and second Mom out to dinner for Mother's day. (She's already fully Primal). We made some serious piglets of ourselves at this wonderful Brazilian chuascurio place. UUUrgh. I can't move but it was so worth it. That was my only meal today.

    So, all in all, this was a family day. If sprints have to lose out to that until next week, so be it.

    Sounds yummy.

    Sun salutations are only the start of the process, and it goes on from there for about an hour and a half, usually. I put the message out to my friend to hear about her favorite teachers.

    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony
