Stretching Does Reap Benefits

The physical therapist prescribed more stretching for me today, hamstrings and quads. Hmmm. No surprise that these are areas in my body that need it. To inspire myself,  I’m posting photos here to remind myself of the two stretches I want to do daily.

To further inspire myself, and maybe you, too, here’s a repost of THE MAN WHO TOUCHED HIS TOES IN 41 DAYS!

“Next time? Longer ride.”  That was my goal after the 13 mile China Camp loop with Marin Cyclists on May 10th (see post below). On that ride I met a new cyclist friend and we’ve done two rides together. 14 miles. 20 miles yesterday.

Loving the Strava app. It divides your ride into segments giving your personal best segments for the ride. It ranks you with other riders who’ve done the same segment, even narrowing it down by sex and age. It was motivating while I was riding, aiming to best myself.
