While I had exams I took a break from stretching, hoping I'd get rid of that stupid pain.
I'll try to start again this evening. Motivation isn't a real issue for me, I just make a shedule and stick to it.

Motivation and time please!!

Training harder in the gym now too. my cushy little gym job pays peanuts so I'm going to get Personal Training job in London. I'm qualified but unfortunately PT is a shallow industry and you have to look like you practise what you preach. Only need another stone I think. So much to do so little time! Sleep, eat, work, martial arts, sex, stretching, weight training, sex, teach, complain about above plus find time to to relax!!!!!!!!!

Obviously it only affects me so you guys wouldn't understand!!

Don't worry it is not just you RossKo, we all have these problems about time and motivation.
Good luck with the personal training job it should be good fun. I would happily have you as a personal trainer.

I'm Back!

I've been in Mexico for a week and then just started a new job which has kept me hoping buisy. So, now that two weeks have passed, I'll give a little update.

Mexico did wonders for my knee. the pain is almost completely gone. My hamstring is a little tight but it doesn't hurt so now my goal is to very very slowly try to stretch it back to normal.

I've maintained my stretchiness within a relative tolerance. I don't measure often but usually just try to eyeball it from day to day. It looks like my front splits (left and right front) are exactly the same but my side split is now pretty much toast... depending on the day it varies from about 35cm up to maybe even as much as 50cm.

In the long run though, getting healthy and un-pained is more a priority right now. But now that I'm feeling a bit better... Now I'm gonna work on that split again.

From a tanned formerly relaxed but now stressed out from work...

Glad to hear you had a great time in Mexico and that you are recovering.
Congratulations on the new job as well.
Keep up the stretching and dont worry about the sidesplit results. Keep it up and you will get there in the end.

Good to have you back Onb,

congrats on the new job hope you're settling in okay. Don't worry about the side split measurement. As long as you're healthy you'll get there in the end. So its much more important that you take it easy and heal. Glad to hear you're on the mend though.

I haven't posted for a bit now cos I went back up north to Lincolnshire for a few days to visit my folks and my Instructor. I didn't really stretch at all except for one evening when I attended one of his classes, it was cool. I went through my 2nd dan syllabus with him. Theres some stuff you would really have to hate someone to do in there!! It turns out that the Butterfly Outside Crescent Kicks (jump up and do 2 outside crescent kicks simultaneously) are easier for me to do than the Butterfly Side Kick. Then last night I was back in kent and taught my own class and am pretty sure that even though my stretching is rusty I actually went lower than ever. The smooth floor with my sweat on helped I think!! Once more motivated for stretching I hope this week goes well.

Rossko

Glad to hear you are back. Its been quiet its just me talking.

Glad to see I am not the only one struggling to find time to do the full stretch routine.
Recently I pulled a muscle in my leg so I have just tried to relax it.
So for the next few days I am going to rest it

I will definately be posting my stretch results this weekend so I hope some of you guys will too. This was the only thing keeping me motivated!!

I hope that muscle is better now Tezza?
