In pursuit of balance: Update

So, I've been doing a little stretching and balance routine every morning for the past few days. It takes about 10 minutes, so it doesn't add too much time to my usual exercise routine of walking or working out on the elliptical machine. I've noticed a couple of interesting things:

First, that the hamstring muscles in my left leg are noticeably tighter than the ones in my right leg.

Second, that I can generally balance longer on my left leg than on my right leg. I'm guessing that this is a muscle strength/coordination issue. So: Left leg is stronger but less flexible than the right leg. Funny, I don't feel asymmetrical...
