The ‘daily dryland’: Ideas to stay active while at home-week 5

By Reach for the Wall Staff

Hopefully you were able to follow our posted dryland sessions yesterday? We participated along with Katie + Katie & had a lot of fun learning a few new exercises! Today, we’re reminding you to end your week with a good session of stretching and mindfulness. Practicing yoga and stretching allows you to calm your body and mind and assists in the recovery process. Recovery is a step in your training that is often overlooked when we are in locked in our daily schedule of school, practice, homework, chores, etc. While we’re on this hiatus from daily swim practice, take the time to incorporate yoga/stretching into your routine so it sticks when you are able to get back to your regimen in the water. Have a great Friday!!
