A Review of Reflexion Yoga

Now that fall is truly here, and the Waterfront Wellness outdoor summer yoga series has come to an end, I needed another way to get some yoga incorporated into my weekly workout routine.

Fall Running

I have felt like I recovered pretty quickly from the marathon, and besides the fall leading to a broken finger, running has been great! I have been running 4-7 miles during the week and my long run this Saturday was 11 miles. I am planning to do 12-13 next weekend, and then taper for the […]
