  • 1.5 hours of Bikram Yoga followed by a 6 mile run
  • Had planned for longer but was running at a particularly low ebb after the yoga session, that and the incredible heat and humidity of the day made this a tough but smart decision, it’s not the right time to be running my batteries too low, time to recharge them
