That Moment

Yesterday I came in from my morning run and I was doing my usual post run routine.  As I was stretching out my hips I bent at the waist and all of a sudden my palms were on the floor.  I know that is what is supposed to happen in an ideal world, but not if you are as inflexible as me.  The best part is I wasn't even trying to do that  I long ago accepted that I might be strong, and run at a decent speed but I was never going to be a one of those Gumby like yogis or a Pilates instructor.  I mean we all have gifts, right?  Being able to touch my toes was not one of mine.

There I was in the basement rec room and I was hands on the floor standing up.  Then I went over to the wall for my next set of post run stretches and I was doing some quad and and calf stretches and I did not need to hold the wall for stability.  I thought "huh?  When did that happen?"  Then I realized. I have just tried lately to focus really consistently on running, stretching and getting in my strength training.  I was not doing anything crazy or targeted.  I was just shooting for fitness and lo and behold fitness happened.

All of that is to say, if it feels like you are not making forward progress, keep at it.  Be consistent.  You are making progress your body just needs to catch up.

by the way love my Fitbit Charge HR.  I will tell you all about it after I have used it a few more days and actually know what I am talking about!!


  1. That's so cool, way to go! Whenever my palms touch the floor after I've bent from the waist it's because I've tipped over! lol

    1. Funny! I do that too sometimes, just not this time!
