Splits challenge

I should do something big this year, I said. What would be unachievable and a bit ridiculous but maybe fun? I asked. I wrote a list of goals for 2019. And the splits challenge was born.

I’ve never been able to do the splits. I got to BAGA Award 4 (remember them?) in gymnastics at school. Doing the splits was in Award 1. How hard can it be though?

Very! Especially when you’re 50ish.

This is a challenge in progress, so I have until December to get there, but the reality is I haven’t done a scrap of effort towards achieving this goal so it’s unlikely. You never know though.  I’m pretty happy that I can do this much.
