This past weekend I participated in my daughter’s school, Panther Dash 5K/10K run. I felt pretty good Saturday morning after much contemplating, I switched last minute from the 5K to the 10K. I had a great result and took 1st place in my age group. However, since I hadn’t been training for a 10K, I had some pretty good soreness and it lasted through Monday. So, my body was telling me to take it easy, but, I still wanted to do something. So, here we go Pilates !!! I took my first Pilates class in a long time. It was tough as I worked on core and my super-tight hamstrings. It was also an Intermediate class (which I didn’t know about halfway through). The instructor, Linda, was super informative and knowledgeable and gave tons of options and modifications. I was glad I also wasn’t the only beginner in there. And, then about halfway through I felt my hamstrings start to loosen up and began getting the hang of it! It seems the more we workout, the less flexible we get, so, we have to even have a stronger focus on it. Even taking Pilates, Yoga, or Piyo once a week will get you results!
