  • That could be a tight hamstring. Maybe do some stretches - sit on the floor with your legs straight out in front. Pull your toes towards you and hold for, say a minute. Relax and repeat.

    Standing, take a step forward with your right leg. Bend it at the knee, keeping your left leg straight, foot flat on the floor. Swap legs.

    Hope that helps.

  • thanks so much honorsmum i will give that a go x
