Day 78- rail turns

IMG_7945

Today’s first for the “one new thing a day for 100 days”  today’s first for the “one new thing a day for 100 days”” New Year’s resolution was to stick 180 turns while train track rail balancing..  my goodness could spend a whole afternoon walking on train track rails, it’s so fun!  Great for balance practice ..

Helpful tips:

*keep knees slightly bent

*engage core, keep spine straight and tall

*eyes on the horizon rather than down at feet

*arms out to sides with shoulders relaxed to aid in balance

(Unaided, a person’s center of balance is located just beneath their ribcage, about halfway from the ground to the top of a person’s head. This means that we balance from this part of our bodies. Carrying a long pole lowers our center of balance, just as holding out our arms to the sides does. If the pole is long enough, a person’s center of balance can be lowered to their knees, ankles or even the tops of their feet. A lower center of balance makes it easier for anyone to balance while walking across even a narrow rope.)
