Puma Yoga and Pancakes

A few years ago, I met Puma as she was doing some yoga at our school for teachers. She pretty much rocks the house!

Now she has her own studio not too far from me, and I saw that she is offering a Prenatal Yoga Class. After a stressful, crazy, pile-of-paper filled Monday, I thought it would be a nice thing to check out. It was! The class was awesome and I felt so much better afterward. We did lots of stretches for the lower back (which has been starting to hurt a bit), shoulders, and hips. We also did some strengthening exercises to keep us in tip-top shape for labor. I think this will be a Monday evening tradition for me--I even recruited Simply Married, my fellow preggers pal, to come with me in 2 weeks! Yahoo!

I'm pumped this weekend as I'm going to meet a few buddies for a trail run followed by pancakes! Now, I'm not gonna lie--I'm kinda just excited to see my buddies and eat pancakes. I'm not so sure about the run thing. My doctor has told me I need to take it VERY easy as this stupid piggy virus takes a LOT out of you. I think I may have to do lots of walking instead of running. Hopefully they'll still let me hang out with them. ;) Bring on the fall foliage and good times with my buddies Training To Tri, ESpeed, Daisy Duc, Salty, and JenC! I'm sure we'll get some good pictures to share!

And on an unrelated note, I accidentally said "That's what she said" (referring to Elizabeth Cady Stanton, if you must know) in the middle of class today. Um, yeah. Chalk that up on the list of things that will make you lose control of your class for 90 seconds or so. It was pretty funny, though....

Hope training is going well out there in blogland! Enjoy this awesome weather! Here's some pictures my uber-talented Mom took from the Cleveland Metroparks last weekend. Be jealous. Be very jealous.

My running is pathetic right now, so I'd be up for nice and easy on Saturday. I'm looking forward most to seeing you and eating breakfast!

Keep it up, Sara! We walked a 5K on Sunday, followed by cheesy eggs instead of pancakes. Like you, I'm starting prenatal yoga next week and getting geared up for a Turkey Trot in Ohio for Thanksgiving. Gettin' excited! So glad you are healthy again!!

I love the 'that's what she said' slip - I can picture it perfectly.

The pictures are gorgeous...

So great you're coming Saturday!! I can't believe we are all going to be together. Seems like forever since I have seen you. Congrats on number 2 too! Boston is gonna be right up your alley.

Nice pictures! Our leaves have been done for quite a while now. We're stuck with the nasty, muddy brown, brown, brown.

Have fun this weekend! Looking forward to our prenatal yoga date! Unless, of course, I go into labor... Not gonna lie... I feel like a ticking time bomb....

So jealous of the pretty colours -- our trees are brown and brown. Enjoy your run (and the pancakes too)

Prego yoga is the BEST! I swear keeping up with it right up the end is why I handled that fiasco of a birth intact and felt like a million bucks afterward. (They kept telling me I'd feel like I got hit by a car the next, but I never felt bad.) Yoga is where it's AT!
