Flexibility….The Biggest Challenge?

In more ways than one…

Being physically flexible has presented its challenges through the years, learning there are just some things that (I physically) cannot do!

However, that doesn’t distract from the shining light of CAN be done, it’s the never ending search to find the way.

“Traditionally” playing the guitar for one (I just know there will be a way to adapt that given the time if I allocated it one day. “Traditional” Driving I thought would be another, but I proudly secured my driving license a few years back with adaptions around my dexterity and patience to find a way, providing a freedom like I’d never experienced before.

It’s one of the reasons I’m a fan of stoic reading. The obstacle is the way! teaching us that it’s tackling the hurdles through the paths to success, not trying to avoid them.

The same can be said of my training set up from the last few weeks, There’s no getting around the gyms being shut – the bigger challenge is to work with what you can at the moment. To remain active with alternatives is possible, not ideal, but possible and that is the path, until the April reopening (I personally cannot wait for! 🙂 )

Stay safe and best wishes.
