Cross training – yoga for hamstring, no running
Sow A Thought, Reap An Action
I can’t touch my toes without bending my legs. It’s a fact, not the end of the world. I know. What I did not know was that all the running I do has made my hamstrings tight as piano wire.
You see, the flexibility I envy in young children and once in my possession many decades ago is a “stretched” goal (pun intended). Now I can touch my shins, and with efforts, my ankles. Perhaps, one day, my toes.
Trouble was the more I run the tighter my hamstrings get. Something I didn’t realize and begin to work on until now (I thought my glutes were the constraints all these time). Ultimately a loosen hamstrings will help my running anyway.
With ideas as seeds action will help them flourish. What ideas do you want to work on?
