Two years and five months after starting this blog, this is my 200th post. Wow!
Even more amazing is that, not only am I still taking ballet classes, I'm taking three a week from some amazing instructors and still enthusiastic about it.
On more mundane topics...
How does one respond to a compliment from an instructor during class? I got TWO of them during barre Sunday morning. It seems rude to not say "thank you", but I suspect if I let my concentration lapse I'll immediately screw up whatever I'm doing. And that's not something I want to do when the instructor is standing right next to me!
I was worried what the result of two ballet classes, a 5 mile hike, and a most of a "Stretch" class on Sunday would be on my body. I'm happy to report that I'm about equally sore on left and right sides. My calf muscles ache a bit, and my glutes are a bit tender. Otherwise I feel pretty good. I'm going to make a serious effort to get to class early enough tomorrow evening to warm up slowly.
