Things to avoid

I have found things to not look at (avoid) and that is, watching young people do yoga, it is a bit discouraging to see them twisted up like pretzels and knowing that I am never every going to be able to do that, LOL. I do want to find a safe way to stretch because I am causing myself a little back pain sometimes when I do my stretching, (got to be careful) and I think yoga will offer me a safe path to follow if I can find the right guidance to do so safely. I will experiment and see what I come up with.

I am going to not walk today and I may not ride the bike. With the cooler weather and missing my break day this week my knees are making a bit of a fuss. I have walk a lot lately so maybe a break is not a bad thing. Once it warms up a bit I will play around with some new stretching technique.

How about a new bird of the week? This is a Wilson’s Phalarope, picture on the right, at the top of the page.

I will take a break now and get out side warm up and come back and do some stretching. Later

4:15 pm ; I had a good stretch, using the link I posted yesterday, it made for a nice hamstrings stretch. Tomorrow I may tried a different one, or add a different to this one. My back feels good and not hurting, a good sign that I did it right. I will have to add a good yoga stretch for the back too, at some point. If any of you folks out in internet land knows a good one to recommend to an 60-year-old dude, please feel free to do so, thanks.

  1. Yoga isn’t about making yourself look like other people, it’s about discovering the pretzel within. Maybe you won’t ever achieve the height of physical perfection, but with a little dedication and patience, you’ll be surprised at what you can achieve.:) Good luck!

    1. Thanks Anastacia, good advice for sure. At the season age of 60, I do know that I can not do the things younger folks can do …… but I still admire them and remember the day, LOL. Again thanks, for stopping into my little place on the web. 🙂

      1. Anastacia, that is so true, the older I get, the more I find out about myself that I only though I knew. In my late 40’s I decide to take Martial arts and I stay with for about 5 year ( hurt a knee and had to give up) I surprised myself a good bit, but the most fun was when I surprise some young whippersnapper with just what I could do, LOL. Life is fun and I do enjoy. 🙂
