I Did the Splits!

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

I really can't believe it myself!

First, I haven't been able to do the splits since I participated in gymnastics in my youth.

Second, this was a goal of mine for the year. It's only March!

I've slowly been increasing my flexibility because of my regular yoga practice. Today, I felt particularly limber and thought I'd give the splits a try just to see how much farther I needed to go. Turns out that I could do a full side split on both sides. Woohoo!!!!! (I never have been able to do a middle split...maybe that should be my next goal.)

I am so PROUD of myself.

  This is a goal of mine I started a few weeks ago. I hope I have as much success! I've actually never done the splits before.

For years I've been wondering, if I worked on it, could I do them again? You just might have inspired me to put my thoughts to action.

    Brilliant! What an inspiration! I wasn't sure what 'doing the splits' meant but there are many websites that explain how to do them so you can get ideas for the middle slip.
I'm very proud of yourself too! What are your other goals?
