Rich Anderson and I made the trip down to kansas siddhi yoga, one of our new sponsors for the 2008 season. Rich has done several classes but this was my first. The 1.5 hour session was great for stretching and can also be a good strength workout, it is also very relaxing. My girlfriend joined me and Rich's wife, Mary, is shadowing the classes. Jenn and I decided to sign up for a 5 session pass and we plan on making this a weekly outing at least until she leaves for work in March. The stretching part of the regimen is only a small part of the yoga experience as Gina, our instructor pointed out during the session, but it was the part that I felt the most that night. Later in the evening as I went to bed I was amazed at how relaxed my neck and back were, I hope to make this a regular part of my training for a long time to come and I recommend it to everyone.

Sunday Richard Anderson, Ashley Blum and Randy met up at Ashley's house in Independence for a good 3 hour ride. The route was great for active recovery as well as base miles, predominately flat and following the Missouri River eastward from Independence. I really like the ride and the best part was that Ashley's wife Dana had made a great "brunch for a bunch" for us when we returned. We will have to definately do that route again, if for no other reason than the meal at the end, Thanks Dana.
