Glimmers of flexibility

I've just done something I haven't done in decades: touch the floor with my fingers while in a forward bend. In a tight fifth, no less! I can almost do it in fourth too.

This might not be anything for you flexy-bendy people (the woman next to me at the barre dragged the back of her hand on the floor with a flourish at the same time), but for me this is a big improvement. The last time I remember having my head so close to my knees was in high school, and I spent 3 days flat on my back and 6 months recovering (trampoline accident).
