Josh M. hits a heavy double

*Rest Day Real World Challenge*

Great work by all you who participated in the first challenge! 

This one is simple, find something to roll out your plantar fascia (aka the bottom of your feet).  Could be a tennis ball, lax ball, PVC, broomstick or even a chew toy.  Treat yourself to 2-3 minutes a foot.  You're welcome!

*Rest Day Real-World Challenge*
All my strap-hangers and mass-transit takers and desk jockeys the challenge is simply to spend at least two minutes of your commute or your work day to "mobilize your business".

All of my drivers,  same challenge.  Stuck in traffic?  Found the perfect parking space?  Find a minute or two to hit a stretch or get into the nasty bits with a lax ball. Stumped? K-Starr has a couple of choice tips for you here.

Should you choose to accept this challenge report back on what you did and where.  Be creative. Be bold.  Be fierce.
