Run for your life…

Did you think I was dead? It is only reasonable after disappearing for a couple of days with no word of warning. Your concern is touching, it truly is.

You see, I had to run a half marathon on Saturday. My mark was avidly training, and joining his running group was about the only way I could get close to him and begin to work on extracting information. I may have won my mark, however, I did not win the race. Seriously. Sprint in pursuit over short distances? SURE! Run 13.1 miles very quickly all in one stretch? I guess also sure (I did it after all), but not without SERIOUS COSTS. Fortunately playing the flirtatious cripple post race really endeared me to said mark, so it wasn’t all a loss.

Regardless, my burpee game took a hit. I took Sunday off from all activity except for walking 17,000 steps as moving about was about the only time my IT bands weren’t irritating me. And yesterday was back to business as usual–no more mission, back to boring ol’ cover life and the burpee/yoga challenge. I am sure all of you kept up without me while I was away, yes?

Mission Objective:

See you back in the fray. Smoochies, darlings.

You know you want to be her.

Menu du Jour

As I was working through some of the more dull aspects of running around collecting intelligence recently (I know you are curious, and yes it is classified), the thought occurred to me that some of you may be wondering why I picked yoga. It doesn’t seem very spy like when one thinks about it, does it? And in some ways, I suppose this is true.

However, you will not find talk of the universe rising to meet you or inflated spirituality up in this bitch, though I can’t prevent some of this in the resources that are available (my influence only extends so far). Yoga does allow me to focus perfectly and shut out external stimuli and internal noise while honing flexibility and strength–all integral in the life of a spy. That being said, day three of our Mission Objective is upon us.

1.) Gentle yoga sequence/warm up:

2.) 20 min. Core Strength Yoga Sequence

3.) 10 min. practicing Baby Bakasana (Baby Crow)

4.) Seated Sequence:

5.) 100 Burpees

6.) Hit at least 10,000 steps

As always, good luck. & smoochies, darlings. 😘
