After last weeks not so great class, a toe injury, sick kids, and just general exhaustion, I was apprehensive about class.
I actually considered not going. I was not feeling 100%- I felt tired and kind of like I was coming down with something.
Honestly, I had been having a really hard time being patient with everyone lately and I figured getting out would allow me to refocus myself even if I did not have a great class, as it turned out I had a great, amazing, awesome class.
It would have been a HUGE mistake to stay home.
I had an amazing class.
From the beginning of class I was able to get into it. Yes my toe hurt. I was more slippery than EVER before. I was weaker than normal. Something about it was just right.
We were going to review a few tricks that I wanted get better at, one of them involved sitting on your non-dominant hand. See after my wrist injury, doing things that put a great deal of stress on my wrist are often quite painful. Instead of just gritting my teeth and doing the trick, I opted to hop out of it, and try it with my other wrist down. My right wrist was strong enough and I was able to do it, just fine.
The other big thing that happened in class is- I took my glasses off to dance. I never take my glasses off-- really only to sleep and shower am I without them. I need to be able to see. I need to have an escape route. Much like I need to have windows that I can see out of all the time- I need to have the ability to get out of somewhere fast.
I took my glasses off and had a great dance.
