Boots Made for Walking #ReadersWorkouts
Welcome to Readers’ Workouts, the weekly event where book lovers share workout stories, goals, successes, and challenges.
I heard last week that it was Nancy Sinatra’s 78th birthday and now I can’t get “These boots are made for walking” out of my head. I’ve been walking a lot — it’s the only form of exercise I’ve done this month. I want to get a little stretching in this week because I have a tight spot at the base of my neck and another weird twinge on the side of my shin (I’m not quite sure how to stretch that!).
How is your exercise going?
I follow an intense stretching routine: 15 min before breakfast – 6 stretch positions for hamstrings, lower back an hip. Then I do odd stretches throughout the day. Did you know? 40 sloe breathes (in/out) are equal to 2 min? That way I don’t have to set a stop watch every time. 2 x per week I take 1 hour lesson stretch/joint mobiity with a personal trainer. The day after that training…I feel the muscle aches starting and it ia a perfect opportuinity to be in bed with a hot water bottle and a book! Tomorrow is another day!
Stretching….try it, you will feel better!
Thanks for sharing the song title Joy, I say sarcastically. Now it is in my head!! I too need to do some walking for my arms.
