Do you know which muscle most people forget to use on a regular basis?
Have you ever worked very diligently on something and seen the results in more places than the main goal? Take for instance changing the way you eat in order to lose weight. You have a goal to wear a smaller size. Along the way to that goal, you notice that not only are you looking better, but you are also feeling better too! I had a similar experience to the work I have been doing and it's simply amazing!
While riding the subway the other day on yet another delayed train, my attention was drawn to the feet of the woman standing in front of me. Her toes were white from gripping the floor. At first, I thought it was because she was in heels, but when I looked at the toes of her friend in flats and saw that they were also white, I knew that it wasn't from the shoes.
Two years ago I trained for the Brooklyn Half Marathon. I was so excited with each passing mile and felt accomplished every week. That was until 7 miles where I injured myself. I was in such intense pain that it hurt to walk, sit, and work let alone run.
