Happy Friyay!

The last day of the workweek otherwise known as Friyay!

It's true. There's something called "Boomeritis"! It's when those born between '46-'64 get tendinitis, arthritis, fractures from being weekend warriors (playing sports on weekends). The "cure"? Adding stretching, yoga and Pilates to their lives. (Whoduthunk that when I chose Pilates over med school (much to my mom's dismay), that it would be here to stay?!) Gaining flexibility while gaining strength is intuitively intelligent. There isn't a reason this wouldn't work (yes, that's a double negative and yes, I could have simply said it in the positive - and lost the umph!).
