The Ultimate Yogi - whoa!

I have done this program for a few days, but I am extremely impressed by what I have seen so far.  I plan to have the full review up by Wednesday (no shocker since we know I am the ultimate fitness blogger slacker).  What I can say, though, is that this may be one of the best (if the not THE best) yoga program on the market. 

Enjoy a preview below:

The Chicago Marathon

We are about 100 days away from the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and I am really torn about wanting to participate.  On one hand, my aggravated trapezius muscle and the fact that I don't normally run is holding me back.  On the other, this will be the last year for me to attempt a marathon before turning 30 (I turn 29 in September).

What I am to do?

Chalene Johnson's latest offering: PiYo

Seeing as I am on a budget and in between jobs, I won't be rushing to order Chalene's latest product.  But I thought I would share for those interested. 

PiYo is a body weight program that combines Pilates and yoga training with high intensity (but low impact).  Chalene had created PiYo years ago and originally licensed PiYo classes for gyms and boutique fitness studios.  This is the first time it is offered on DVD as part of a workout program. 

I would love to order this and it fits with my goals right now, but I don't feel I can justify the cost.  I also have lots of DVDs to get through in my current collection, but I can see PiYo being a possibility later down the line.
