Commit to the turn

Balance is a four letter word for me. I can't quite get myself to execute steps without depending too much on my partner. This past week he has been drilling me on a solo section for our routine and then started in on a whole new section.

Initially it looked like it was quite do-able...lets refrain from using the word easy. I basically travel in a line from one side to the other while executing three turns with breaks in the middle. Easy, right? (easy is another four letter word) Well, after an hour of doing the same section, sweating like a mad woman and 2 cups of water later...I have {gasp} no balance as well as I can't get my feet to do this pretzel thing so that my left foot is free for the next step.

At the end of the session I was sore, bruised and feeling great. Who would have thunk it? :)

I am considering taking the Pilates and Yoga classes that are offered at my job to help with the balance issue. I just wish I was the only student in the class for those classes too. A girl can dream.
