Happy New Year everybody!!
This post is going to have to be a short one, I had no idea what time it was because I was so into the stretching video I'm sharing below.
I've learned a lot about myself and where I want to see my life going in 2014, and today I wanted to make sure I started off on the right foot. After an injury, my right hamstring and left hip have been extremely tight and I really need to work on my flexibility to get back into my running game because I miss it so much. I stumbled across this gem on the internet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDQNqZMv1V0 and it did exactly what it said it would, gave me a fantastic deep stretch to my hips, legs, and lower back, and boy did I need it! Between needing to gain back my flexibility and a high repetition leg workout today, I was tight!!! I could really feel the imbalances between my right and left sides.
Even though this is a slower paced stretch/yoga, as it is meant to be because of its recovery focus, the video seems to go by quickly and can easily be completed by people of all ranges of flexibility. I'll be incorporating this into my practice as much as I can!
2014 is a year to be happy! What are one of the things YOU are doing to maintain and spread a positive attitude this year???
