Kitten & Duncan

morning

Woke up with everything hurting, especially lower back and wrists. I also woke up to the coolest Highlander dream. Oh, and some of the bruises on my legs are going through a lovely yellow phase.

It's hard to tell what's going to happen if I keep pushing my body like this. I can't tell if it's going to get stronger or just break. I do know that I need to start strengthening my wrists and lower back so that I don't hurt them with all the added work of new tricks and more practice time with other dancers and instructors. I fantasize about having the time to go to a gym and work with a personal trainer 3 times per week.

The weather is overcast and cloudy, just how I like it. Now that I'm up I think I want to go back to bed and read. But I have a big to-do list to work on.
