Dance Class Challenge: 5/100 - Intermediate/Advanced Pole
Last night we worked on climbing and climbing spins in class. Climbing is much easier in shoes, but you have to learn barefoot to have good technique. This is my reminder of how tough climbing was five years ago. This bruise is going to ripen to a nice dark purple, become olive, then fade through a series of yellows. The first time back at it hurts. My thighs are also bruised, meaning no pole class next week so I don't look abused when I arrive in Texas.
I'm having a tough time getting in ten classes this month when I'm also teaching three classes and touring. I need to develop a better strategy.
