Welcome to Readers’ Workouts, the weekly event where book lovers share workout stories, goals, successes, and challenges.
I mentioned last week that I wasn’t doing anything but walking. In the past week, I tried a bit of stretching. I noticed a marked decrease in flexibility from before. Yoga poses that used to stretch my inner thighs now stretch my outer thighs because my hips are so tight. But, just a few stretches and I’m already seeing an improvement. I’m also remembering why stretching works so well for me. I’m convinced that I have fewer problems with my knees, hips, and back when I perform stretches routinely.
How about you? Is stretching an important part of your routine?
