I've had a sore hip lately. Not joint pain, but like tight muscle pain. Anyways, that motivated me to dig out some exercises I learned from my physiotherapist a few years ago for the same hip problem and to start stretching on a more regular basis. That means stretching every day versus stretching maybe once a month.
I discovered that I can no longer touch my toes! I was shocked! I swear even just a year ago I could. My husband, who NEVER stretches, can touch his forehead to his shins and grab the back of his ankles. What??!! So, that is my new goal. Well, that and to make this hip pain go away. Even after just a few days of my new stretching program, it's way better. My goal date for touching my toes is going to be September 22.
Oh yeah, and holy smokes, is Coach Nicole ever flexible!!
