This is not nearly as flat as I want it to be-- but I need to get back into shape.
Thankfully- a great gym offered me a job teaching classes there and allowed me to come and practice there.
I got back on the pole and at first was really grumpy. I had been away for a bit, had a major surgery, and then a minor surgery. I hadn't fully come back from the first surgery and with all the time away I was not as strong as usual and certain tricks (some of my favorites) were not working for me. That is maddening. Absolutely maddening.
But a great person, a great woman, a great poler- talked to me and in the end I had a great time again. My tricks aren't back yet but soon.
