MOBILITY – three-legged dog ankle mobilization, 6/side

MINDFULNESS – think about the winter farmer!


Today’s mobility work is to get some effective range of motion back in those ankles!

This is similar to the classic runner’s calf stretch over a sidewalk or pole, but will help you really wring out a bit more flexion in the joint. The key is the contract/relax, you’ll notice that my heel gets significantly closer to the ground after each round!

The mindfulness work is to consider the dilemma of the winter farmer. This is a tough nut to crack, and there’s really no universally correct answer. A decision must be made, and cannot be unmade.

Do some box breathing, and consider this conundrum!
