Once the fun of eating endless pancakes on Mardi Gras ended, it seems like everyone has decided to give up something they love for 40 days and 40 nights. I have decided to not deprive myself of anything. Living in my “everything with moderation” lifestyle, I decided to take on a 40 days of stretching challenge.
I use to be able to pull any stretch without a warm up. Since I have increased my running and weight training, my muscles have become stronger and I have become less flexible. A teammate on my cheer team introduced me to Gabi Butler, an incredibly flexible cheerleader on Top Gun Jags:
Gabi has made a stretching video on youtube of techniques that she uses. This girl is insane and I LOVE it!
My 40 days of stretching will include 30 minutes of HARD stretching and not just a 10 minute post run stretch out.
Are you doing a 40 day challenge?
