Working out at JDV Pilates
My super long runs kicked in this week and I finally went back to the High Line Canal to see how clear (or not) it was. I still had to dodge numerous patches of ice/slush/mud, but I'd say 85% was dry dirt. It was great to be back on that trail.
My new experience of the week came at JDV Pilates in Denver. I had never done a Pilates class before and it was very enjoyable. Owner Ansley Watson took me through all kinds of burning, stretching and strengthening exercises that were good for running. I don't know how she keeps all those pulleys and springs straight, but she's a pro. She had me hold poses and exercises for a minute at a time - I could definitely feel many of the exercises both during and after. I'll be back to visit.
