After a long wait of three whole weeks (worst three weeks of my life I swear!) Pole divas finally opened up again last week so I can spin to my heart’s content! I thought last term had made me strong as a bear, and I’ve been trying to keep it up during the Christmas break, but I’m still finding muscle groups I just haven’t used ever. I’m sure I’ll get stronger pretty quickly but right now I’m just dumbfounded as to how I apparently use my back muscles for nothing.
I also had callouses before, but during the break they started peeling off. A good sign if I ever decide I need soft lady hands again, but since they actually have their uses I was sad to see them go. Now, I have to build them up again, and that means a few weeks of blistered hands:
It’s not pretty!
