one month in, and my flexibility and balance have definitely improved, as has my musculature and carriage. I still need to focus on my endurance in relation to balance, which (I feel) means developing my core strength.
I have lost 6 lbs, but that isn't really the point. I now run an average of 5 miles 2-3 times a week, strength train once a week, flexibility train seven days a week, and attend yoga three mornings a week.
I am noticing an overall improvement in how I feel in every way possible. And I started the draft of a new story today, and I wrote the draft of lecture for the MFA residency before yoga a few days ago. I also booked trips to Tampa (by train) and Chicago (by train), for the two weeks Tim has off between the summer and fall semesters. Everything is good.
