Stretch Goals


One of my exercise goals for 2019 was to make time to stretch for at least five minutes on one hundred days. Mission accomplished (albeit a tad late--I didn't finish my 100th stretching session until today).

I'm a bendy person by nature. I plopped down into a full center split as a toddler and never looked back. Sure, I had to work on developing strength to support my flexibility, but flexibility itself hasn't been something I've worked at in a long time.

This changed once I started spinning thanks to a helpful nudge from Peloton in the form of a prompt to begin a five-minute post ride stretch after every ride. I'll probably never be as limber as I once was, but I feel better now that I'm stretching again.

Speaking of "stretch goals," in 2020 I plan to tend to the (many!) 2019 goals that weren't completed timely and stretch to complete the goals listed under my 2020 tab (and copied below), which include some items that are less practical than in years past on account of my recent engagement to M.
