Sunday Splits

I really want my splits.

I know it’s silly.  I’m too old for splits.  Splits aren’t necessary to dance ballet.  There is no class that will kick me out after failing to produce a proper split.  But none of that matters.  I want it anyway.

It takes time and stretching.  That’s all.  Keep working, and it will get there.  Or so I keep telling myself.  So, in an effort to reach my silly little goal, I have decided to begin a segment henceforth known as Sunday Splits.

Every Sunday, I will post photos of my splits.  Hopefully, there will be improvement.  But above all, I think a weekly post will force me to keep up with my stretching.  Should any Sunday pass without a post, feel free to say, “Hey, KitTeaCat, where the heck are your Sunday Splits?  Get cracking!”

Without further adieu, the first installment:

IMG_1405 (Right leg front split.  I think the shorts make is look closer to the ground than it actually is, but definitely my better side.  Also notice Francisco in the background clearly asking “What the hell is Mama doing?”  I hate him a little because of his effortless flexibility. 😉)
IMG_1406 (Left leg front split.  Long way to go.  And now Loki has joined in on the fun.)
IMG_1407  (Middle straddle split.  Ewww.  Needs SO MUCH work.  I hate this one.  And also, sorry for the lovely butt view.)

(I, of course, realize it is Friday and not Sunday.  Nevertheless, I begin Sunday Splits today.  Because I am a rebel.  And an overachiever.  And Friday Splits doesn’t have the nice alliterative ring to it.)

  1. In a ballet class I attended there was a seventy year old lady who did seemingly effortless splits. She said she had been extremely flexible all her life, but also practised splits every single day.

  2. This is about how far down I go. However, I refuse to state my age. If you think *you* are too old? Think again! When I figure skated, I knew someone almost 10 years older than me who could do the splits on the ice. Trust me, if you want them you can and will get them! Great job, and look forward to seeing the progress! You are almost there. 🙂

  3. Never too silly or too old to set a goal. If I weren’t so lazy (unfortunately lazy totally gets in the way even if silly and old do not), I’d jump on the Sunday Splits bandwagon with you!
