Ahhhh, stretching 💕
You simply cannot go as hard as I do, as consistently and intensely, and then NOT dedicate time to stretching that all back out.
And yes, many moons ago, I basically WAS that girl that often skipped warm up, and cool down… and stretching was never a consistent part of my routine, really.
But Sara and I have been dedicating one day a week to different stretching-based workouts, and I really have been feeling like it’s exactly what my body needs!
You wanna know something?
It’s kinda tough to go from intense workouts 6 days a week to 3 weeks of no workouts, only gentle movement.
So I had said I was gonna see how I felt when I wake up as to whether or not I “sleep in” or get up and move…
Well I mean its Monday and thats a really difficult day for me to do nothing, so I did Stretch and Release (from the program I just finished!) and look who joined me for some stretching (my babe LOVES her a good stretch!)
It felt good to S T R E T C H!
What’s your movement today? It doesn’t have to be intense to be beneficial!
