I've Reached Further Than Ever Before!

Such a great program. As someone with no yoga experience, I was totally able to follow along. And while there were parts that I had to refrain from due to my still-injured hand, I got an amazing benefit in hamstring and other leg and torso flexibility improvements.

The whole meditative, examining life, introspection side of things just really isn't for me. So I mostly opted out. And that was fine too.

Now it's time to up my cardio, up my strength training (to the extent I can sans-left-hand), and keep on touching my toes along the way.

Thanks Patrick, Thomas, Ward for another great program. Thanks Camels and other friends for the support.

See ya' on the blogs!

Such a trooper pushing through one handed. It does bring a smile to my face thinking about you trying to hold a stretch for 10 minutes with some zen Indian music in the background. I can actually hear the cussing 😂 Great job seeing it through captain!

    What Sharm says on the New Age music, exactly, hahaha! So happy you decided to see this through despite your hand. Even doing some of the stretches on a daily basis retrains the brain and increases flexibility. You are Reaching past your toes now! Well done, Elissa. Hope you are back on the boat properly soon!

      Elissa, you are a great example in perseverance, especially with your injured hand (can't believe how long that is taking to heal). I am with you on the introspection side, but the improved flexibility will pay off in spades over the years for you (and maybe make another wipe-out less likely?).

        Well done for getting all flexible - love Sharmali's comment :). Hope the hand speeds up its healing so you can crush another strength programme.

            awesome job, I know how hard it was for you to push through the ups and downs.

            Now let's go drink some mezcal !

              Building postures from the ground up with an eye on the science certainly helps! But you can't get the goods if you don't do the work. From digesting those daily lessons to keeping it real on the blogs to that epic forward bend, you raised the bar, Elissa. And all with a wonky ass hand proving once again, nothing can stop you. Enjoy feeling lighter and moving free and easy as you dive back in to the strength routine. COMPLETE!

                  You've inspired me to do reach! Even with a injury your level of fitness and flexibility is so impressive/inspiring
