While I am getting ready to further that pole goal, I have set a new one. THE SPLITS! I want to be able to do the splits. I don't even know the difference between regular splits and the "Chinese" splits, but I want to do them. So, last week, we took a photo in class to see how far down I could get. I was actually pretty surprised. I don't have as far to go as I would have thought. Even with the scars from my inner thigh lift and the fact that I've never been very flexible anyway, I got down pretty low. I tried again this week, and thanks to running for couch to 5k, I was REALLY sore and stiff and didn't get down quite as far.
But at least I have a starting point...and here it is.
