An Update...

Hello everyone! How goes it? I'm on a little vacation this week. Just taking a mental break from the office where I get to hang out and just chill. I've taken a couple of classes already this week during the day that were just simply delicious. Ever had a class like that? Where instead of just keeping up, you feel strong and stable and just ready to try anything? That was how I felt.

Today I'm staying home and taking care of some business like posting a bunch of auctions on Ebay, catching up with my favorite blogs, and standing on my head. :) I have done a lot of walking the last couple of days and my legs feel tired. My shins are feeling especially sore. That happens whenever I do a lot of walking. It is such an awkward body part to stretch out. How do you do? I'm still not certain I know what to do. It is easy to stretch the calves but what about the muscles in front of your leg? Too bad I don't know any runners. Maybe they might have a tip. I don't know if sitting in Virasana would do anything. Maybe stretch out the tops of my feet but it's not enough.

Hm, good question, Marilyn. I used to run a lot and my shins would be sore for days. I used to do this stretch... it might help you...
"Start by sitting on the grass or soft carpet with your legs folded directly under your thighs. (Note Jack’s foot position: shoe laces against the ground.) Use one hand to support your weight and the other to lift your knee. This lifting should send a stretch down your shin. Hold it 20 to 30 seconds, then switch legs."
And, I am so glad that you have been able to get a little break and have such wonderful classes!

That sounds like a good stretch, I'll definitely try it. Thanks for the tip!

Sounds like you're having some blissful time out and I hope you find out other ways to stretch out the front of your legs. Mmm, I never really thought about that part of my legs when walking/running.
