Me? Recommended??? Pah-Shaw!!!!

What wonderful news I received this morning when I learned that C&Y is currently the YogaDawg Recommended Blog for the moment, it could be a week, a day, 15 minutes, bloggin' is serious business folks so I'll take anything I can get. YogaDawg is such a wonderful and fun site where you can spend HOURS just checking everything out. I personally like The Buddha takes a Yoga Class series. Anyway, a big THANK YOU for the honor. :)

So how do I celebrate this joyous occassion? By messing up my Right leg Tuesday night. From my hip - which I have been keeping a close eye on since the inflammations, down to my ankle bone especially around the Peroneus muscles which are muscles directly linked to the ankle. I've been having trouble with those muscles for YEARS, even before I started doing yoga. Just working out at the gym if I was on the treadmill those muscles would cramp up way too fast. Even now if I do a fast walk those are the first to fall apart on me. I'm not quite sure how to strengthen those muscles, maybe walking on my tippy toes?

Your peroneals will get stronger by everting your foot. You can lay on your side with an ankle weight wrapped around the arch of your foot, and then, you lift your foot up towards the ceiling with the arc of motion right at your ankle. Try not to move the whole leg, just move your foot up towards the ceiling. Hope that helps get your lateral leg stronger. You can also try repetitively everting your foot anywhere, standing in line, etc. Keep your heel against the ground and just move your foot outwards like a windshield wiper. Good luck.
