Where’s the Easy Button???

Today’s 44 was fun because not only was it a good move to tighten the butt/hamstring area but it was a great calf stretch – always a necessary thing!!!

I did a donkey kick from downward dog.  Start in downward dog position:

ready
ready
bring right knee in
bring right knee in
kick back
kick back

Pull the knee in as close to your chest as possible (good for the abs) and then kick your foot back – repeat x 44.  Then switch sides and start again!

left side
left side
kick
kick

This move went quickly – definitely one that I will do again!!!

Today I ran – always a happy thing.  I did 5 miles just under 7 minutes/mile (34:44) and then 2.25 more miles at a nice easy pace with a steeper incline.

Lately, it seems that everything takes 10x longer than I expect it to and every time I turn around there is a new problem/issue to deal with.  

I know it’s just a phase and things will level out (I HOPE!) soon.

If you have an easy button that you don’t need anymore, feel free to send it my way – I will return it as soon as possible!!!

Happy Wednesday!
