The other day I googled something like “chronically tight hamstrings” (because mine always are) and found this gem of a web site. In the video its explains that tight hamstrings are a result of a weak core because when the core isn’t strong enough the hamstrings have to do the work to control the hips.
My friends often make fun of when I "check-in" to a place on Four Square. But it's paid off for me in the past when it told me that a Twitter friend was in the near vicinity. I got to meet this out of town person who was visiting to run SFM a few years ago. I always get a rush whenever I become the "Mayor" of a location (working on getting my mayorship back at my favorite sushi restaurant!). And being a Four Square mayor has finally reaped some rewards. My monthly membership pass at my yoga studio was up for renewal yesterday and since I am the "mayor" I got a 20% discount!
