Belly Dance = Hard Work!

What a class we had last night at Belly Dance! Phew! I woke up sore this morning.

I think I've mentioned that we are performing mid-April for the Ladies Curling Banquet, in an attempt to grow the program. Last night we did a million run throughs of the two dances we are doing. The ladies in the class are really starting to panic. I won't feel panic until the day of. I have to put all my belly dance music on my iPod today so that I can practice my dances on vacay. I need to really learn the music cues. The one dance we learned 3 years ago, so I just have to tweak my arms and hands. The other dance though, we just learned this semester! YIKES!!

On the walking front, I have a 45 minute fast walk today, which I think I will run up to the Club for. It is nice enough outside, for sure, but....I'm afraid to go walking outside if I don't have someone at home waiting for my return.....silly, yes, I know, but.....it is all part of the silliness that is me! But I digress. I think the last time I did the "fast" walk on the treadmill, I did 3.7 mph. I know, not fast, but a starting point. So, today I will do....drumroll please.....3.8!!!! Woo, hooo. I have to be up around 4.0 mph by the actual marathon. That is 6.5 kph here, which is what my walking partner would like to do race day. So, not tooo far to go. Meanwhile - more iPod audiobook time! YAY!!

I have so much running around to do today - I'm quite tired and stressed just thinking about it. It will be a miracle if the timing all works out. I don't know what I was thinking when I set everything up - it has built in stress. Sheesh.

So, I'd better go have some breakfast, so that I can get started on my running around.

I'm going to be away from blogging for the next two weeks - so everyone stay on track, as will I. I'm funny, eh??

Have a healthy 14 days bloggers!!

  7. I sometimes love the ignorant American in me. I know what curling is (from watching the Olympics), but I let out an audible giggle when I read the words 'Ladies Curling Banquet.' :)

    Awesome work with the belly dancing. What a neat talent to have!
