Yoga Journal – Yoga Cross-Training – Yoga for Runners: “The pain most runners feel is not from the running in and of itself, but from imbalances that running causes and exacerbates. If you bring your body into balance through the practice of yoga, you can run long and hard for years to come. Although yoga and running lie on opposite ends of the exercise spectrum, the two need not be mutually exclusive. In fact, running and yoga make a good marriage of strength and flexibility”
I can happily say that I feel better running in my later 30s than when I ran in my 20s because I incorporate yoga into my life now. After kick-starting my running again at sea level this summer, I decided to commit to a 1/2 marathon and will run the Denver Rock & Roll 1/2 in October!
