My muscles are tight and ache so. I am at chorus, the dress rehearsal. The guys' group is singing, so the women are waiting. I start to stretch. I stretch various ways and ease down into a split, legs to the sides. I am surprised and pleased. I have been working with the ortho massage person for a couple of years, but splits! I enjoy the muscle lengthening and then slowly get up. I try the right leg split and I can do that one too. That used to be my best, years ago when I did gymnastics. Then I try the left leg and I can do a full split there too. I am very pleased, all that muscle work balancing the stress of clinic and muscle aging.
I wake up.
