After nearly nine years of hitting the pavement (I celebrate anniversaries like they're going out of style, so I mark occasions like that), running is definitely my core sport. My passion. The one I turn to without a doubt, whenever I can. I join a gym in the dead of winter only to let my membership expire -- or, I'm ashamed to admit, pay the membership fee monthly when I haven't stepped foot in the place in [currently] seven months -- because running outside trumps the hamster wheel of a treadmill in almost any weather, any day of the week.
But then what about yoga, or a flirtation with barre, or swimming or cycling for a tri. Balance is obviously best, but I'd love to know how everyone else manages it. Are you all or nothing? Do you have the structure down pat? I have a tendency to jump in with both feet to whatever of-the-moment workout I'm feeling, gradually falling out of lust and back in love with simply putting one foot in front of the other.
How can one commit to a regular yoga practice, while continuing to feed a now lifelong dedication to running?
