What Being Injured Is Giving Me

*This post contains affiliate links.*
I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leav…

Yoga Design Lab - Premium Yoga Mat w/ Strap Review.

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I'm happy to report that I'm coming out of my running funk (Enough Is Enough Is Enough), and I'm mixing my workouts up a little. What does this mean?

Well, I'm lowering the mileage. My goal is to hit between 20-25 miles per week. This may or may not include a long run. I plan to do a longer run once a week, but that longish run might be in the 6-8 mile range. I'm going to play it by ear.

But it also means I'm adding cross training to my workout routines. I plan to add spin once a week, maybe a pool workout, strength training 2-3 times per week, and yoga at least once or twice a week.

So you can imagine my excitement when I had the opportunity to test out the Yoga Design Lab - Premium Yoga Mat.

My first thought was that it was super durable. Lil Man got it it before I did, and he carried it around, dropped it, rolled on it, and actually 'tested' it out before I did. And let's say it held up well. 

I liked that it seemed very long. I am short, but I had room to stretch out and then some. Lil Man and I were both able to use the mat at the same time to do 'loga' as he calls it. And I liked the thickness. It was thick enough to protect me from the floor, but not so thick that I would sink too far into the foam. 

It was easy to wipe down, easy to roll up, and the straps were perfect for carrying it back and forth. All in all, I would give the Yoga Design Lab Premium Mat with Strap 5 stars.  I feel this is a superior mat for floor exercises, and I would definitely recommend it to friends. 

I plan to get many workouts in with this mat. If you are in the market for a yoga mat, I recommend the Yoga Design Labs mat. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
