 I stretched 4 days a week, 2 hours per session; totaling over 100 hours of stretching in 100 days. This is my second completed 100 day contortion challenge! In this year’s challenge I fully conquered 2 of my pose goals. I’m not upset at all that I didn’t reach all 10 of my goals, because I know it’s the journey I love, not …

I did a lot of gymnastics and pole dancing to support my flexibility training and to keep everything in balance.  I have had to take it easy on all splits because my hip flexors are not feeling 100% when in splits.
