TRUEStretch in your gym, learn to enjoy it. All you have to do is mimic the pics.
If your gym doesn't have a TRUEStretch, have your fitness director contact TRUEFitness pronto! (I'm not even getting anything for that endorsement. I just really like the product.) And PS: the purple stretch above is my personal fav. It really pulls the lats, even the shoulders. The lower back, too if you round your bum toward the ground ever-so slightly. (I like the one in green as well, but I'm too short for it. Can't reach the bars above. Insert sad face here.)
Don't have a gym membership? No worries. Come back tomorrow and I'll outline a perfectly decent 10-minute stretch routine that you can do in the privacy of your own home. No equipment necessary. (Click the mailbox in the column at right and I'll automatically send you the article!) Until then, make some time today to go-go stretch out your muscles. Even if you didn't hit the gym. A bit of stretching every day is good for you, you'll see.
And now, I'm off to run in the dunes again. Yep, bitter cold out there. Holy hell, it's bitter cold. I'm going to let it motivate me to keep on keepin' on, which hopefully will give me strength on those gosh darn hills.
Don't forget about tomorrow's 10-minute stretch routine.
Question: Are you good about stretching?
