Quick practice update

The 10 minutes practice a day thing was working well – then I got over-enthusiastic and tried to do strength training as well.

Bad move!

Sore muscles killed my practice routine – and it’s taken me over a week to confess that, during which I haven’t really practiced 😦

On the plus side, I was truly amazed at the effect on both my dancing and my overall flexibility of only a few minutes practice (this included lunges and stretches, as well as dance moves).  And once I got started, it was really easy to find the time to move for more than just 10 minutes.  Although it probably says a lot about me that most of my practice was done after 10pm!

So, what have I learned from my lapse?

Well, a few things:

  1. Don’t mess too much with what works well
  2. It’s easy for me to get caught up by new ideas – which leads to…
  3. I’m rather too optimistic about how much energy I have (and how strong my muscles are).
  4. Oh, and, don’t teach belly rolls the day after starting sit-up stamina training…

So, now it’s back to the original plan – and this time I’ll try to stick with what works!
