Rest again

I am still on a rest day. I probably could have done workouts but why cross the thin line of fitness and over-training. I did more stretching and joint mobility following yesterdays theme. I should point out that this isn't the stretching you learned in PE class. This is useful stretching and strengthening. Using your strength to stretch your muscles. In other words, flexing the muscles you are stretching will allow your muscles to "lengthen." Try it sometime. Better yet, don't try this at home. Contact me and we can arrange a class that will change your life. (for the better).

A year ago, I had very poor flexibility and have found a way to improve. I move better, am injured less and sleep better. Can you handle the best part? I can put on my socks. I still have a long way to go in this area. A little here and a little there. It is a weakness that leads to more strength and more comfort.

Speaking of weakness - Paul wrote to the Corinthians about weakness, 2Cor 12:9,10 says:
And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is perfected in weakness." Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weakness so Christ's power may reside in me. So because of Christ, I am pleased in weaknesses, in insults, in catastrophes, in persecutions and in pressures for when I am weak, than I am strong.

Thought you might like to think about this verse for a while.

As RKC Orr says, this stretching will do you a world of good and is good for you. You will really feel the difference and realize that stretching allows your body to move the way it is designed to. That PE stuff was far removed from what you should really be doing.

Give Comrade Orr a call, he's got the training and the knowledge to show you how to do it correctly and efficiently. Plus, "The Party" is always right, and he will prove it.
