  1. I'm still very new and fresh baby faced in the world of exercising and squatting and need some help or possibly patience and time I'm getting very sore knees, on the inside kinda feels like I've bruised my kneecap. when I'm bending down normally outside of the gym and sometimes coming up from my squat, not often though, it hurts the next day. I know I have very tight hips and I'm struggling to keep my knees out, which is where the problem lies. I'm really trying and working on keeping my knees out, but they still decide to come in. Can anyone recommend any exercises and/or stretches to improve and fix my dodgy squat. Currently stretching my hip flexors and rolling the inside and outside of my thighs. Please and Thank You for any advice
  2. just been reading up on it all. sounds like super fun. gaming in real life feel like i should equip myself with a weapon or something (later down the track tho) have to earn it can't wait. Decided that I'm a human that thinks she's a pixie who wants to be a ranger. And YES swimming was a god send... can't wait for tomorrow's day 3 and still going alright, can feel myself getting lazyish, mainly cos I'm so tired, 3 nights of not sleepy that well, combined with my early morning starts, gets to me. I need my min 7.5hrs a night or I'm a shit. :/ second crossfit was great, I'm really excited to be learning how to do weights, squats (never thought that would happen) and how just changing one little thing improves the movement so much. become very more body aware which is great!! I have back muscles!! very glad I included stretching into my challenge was thinking of doing a diet one, but happy I didn't it feels so good to just be cat like and stretch those joints and muscles. plus I'm sooo inflexible that if i can touch my toes I'll be happy. points 1 for crossfit, 1 for stretching, 0 for riding (it was another rainy gale force wind morning, but used my rain day yesterday)
  3. Hi vengeful pear. Thanks for popping by forgive my ignorance/newbieness but how do I do the rpg stuff? Make it up? Or is it the guilds/career things? Cos it'd be kinda fun I think Day one update Went to crossfit (1point) feeling it today tho. Was my first class and learnt quite a bit, can't wait for more (not of the sore muscles tho) Rode to work, even got caught in the rain on the way home (1point) No stretching thinking of borrowing a yoga rape from the library to get some ideas (0point) Day two update Used my raining day allowance for riding (1point) Currently sitting in the pool car park, it was good to move my sore muscles and lossen them up a bit. I think I should pushing myself to stay a bit longer tho. Will have to start doing puzzles or something to stop the boredem that sets in sometimes (1point) Giving myself an advance on my stretching point. It's going to happen (1point)
