Today was a successful yet exhausting day. Mainly because yesterday I thought it would be a good idea to run a couple of miles, so I woke up sore and tired.
Getting up at 4:45 to catch a swell is an art form. I personally love surfing early AM because it’s not as crowded and I get a full day, however it’s hard to wake up sometimes. That was this morning. BUT, I pushed myself and and got ready for the water.
When I arrived at the beach, I greeted my surf buddy and we entered the water. Now, we have been going through a heat wave so actually the water wasn’t very cold. That’s always a welcome surprise for an ocean that’s usually 58 degrees Fahrenheit.
The waves were small but steep, and soon after 6:30 am, started to get very congested. We surfed for about an hour and a half then decided we had enough for the day. We both did more paddling than actually surfing but it’s a good workout.
Tired and salty, I arrived home and showered. Sitting on the couch it was a daunting idea to practice yoga in the afternoon. I decided to give myself a few hours of rest, get some work done and relax.
All throughout my hours of rest I kept trying to motivate myself to practice yoga later in the day.
I am proud to say it actually worked and I did a 45 minute yoga session and a 20 minute cardio session.
Today was exhausting but I’m excited for the waves tomorrow!
