2016 April-May Splits Challenge:
– no poses, just stretches

Very light stretching during a VERY busy week.

– 1.5mi: 1.3mi in 11m15s, 1.5mi in ~12:30?
My phone died at 1.3 mi, so I’m not sure what my time for 1.5 was, but I started sprinting and assume I definitely made it in under 13 minutes.

2016 April-May Splits Challenge:
– Front Splits
– Middle Splits
– Pigeon Stretch – Left & Right
– Pancake
Intermediate Backbend:
– Cobra
– Bridge
– Camel
Advanced Backbend:
– Cobra
– Bridge

Today was amazing! I did both front and middle splits today because I had missed so many days this week because of moving and new puppies, and I finally had the time. I touched down on front splits (my right side barely touched but it still counts. Hahaha). My middle splits were decent. They were lower than normal.

The real MVP of stretching today were my backbends. Cobra was just so effortless. I finally broke 90 degrees on my camel!!!! I could feel my middle back just allow me to fold and look at the wall behind me with ease. And my bridge was amazing! I was looking directly at the floor, and there was no doubt that the bend was coming from my middle back and not my shoulders. In fact, there was a straight line from my middle back to my wrists, and my lower ribs were almost directly above my shoulders as well!! Getting so close!

Also, I just found out theres another backbend challenge in July. This time it’s 60 days as well. That gives me one month respite between this challenge and that one. I don’t plan on stopping my stretching, but it’ll be good to have no pressure during my first month of school!
