Hi Kasandra

Neither is necessarily better, because it depends on your goals. The option with the yoga has advantages in that it allows you to work on postural control, flexibility and balance, and these are potentially importans aspects of fitness. On the other hand, it has less cardio and that means less aerobic fitness. So you need to decide which is more important, which is determined by what your goals are. If your goal is to get as fit as possible for a running, cycling event, then go with 5 days. If you want general all-round fitness, then the yoga option seems a good bet.

Good luck
