It seems odd that I find it so difficult to stick to a 10-minute stretching plan when stretching time doesn't even require that I end up in the shower afterwards. I think my failure to stick to stretching shows me that I am actually way behind on my spiritual development. I have an emotional response to stretching that makes me feel impatient. Everytime I start, I cop the attitude that I am wasting precious time better devoted to high activity. I apparently have a long way to go before I develop the ability to meditate without using long distance running as a trick for doing so.

Is anyone still stretching? I haven't done any the last week but keep telling myself I'll start again tomorrow.

I'm slacking on streching and cardio. I'm using a super heavy work load with many quickly coming deadlines as my excuse. I am making sure to keep up with my weight training but that is about it.

Blew it again but I suppose at least I'm doing it sometimes. Will try again later in the week.

I am really falling off the wagon repeatedly on this challenge. UG!

I've started my streak - did my 10 minutes yesterday and today.

P.S. Have you started yet, Cyp?

I'd say that this 10 minutes can be counted in the 3000 points since it is an individual challenge rather than a team challenge; thus we won't be double-dipping for team points. Double-dipping would be to count team miles for a walk/run and then use that same walk/run to count for team exercise points.

As posted elsewhere, I screwed up yesterday and didn't start my Stretching Streak.

Oh, Cyp, this is something I really should do so starting on Saturday I will have a go. Do we count this in the 3,000 points as well?
