So, now that I have about 7 weeks to prepare for the final I've got to get into some sort of routine. For the last month or so I've been toying with the idea of trying to get front splits on my good side by my birthday. My birthday is halloween, so that gives me just under 4 weeks to give it a go. In the preparation for the Pole Divas heat I neglected my flexibility training quite badly. Now I plan to use this blog to keep a record of how it's going in order to motivate me.
This is where I was last night after not training for a week (on the good side).
It looks worse than it did last night!
On my bad side, I have no such goals. My right leg has all sorts of remenants of knee and ankle injuries from my teens and I have to take everything very slowly and be very gentle. It can be pretty fustrating, but I am seeing improvement. This is where it's at:
Box splits are probably well over a year away. I've not got flexibility that way at all.
As for making a routine, I know that the best thing for me to do is just listen to a lot of music and see what song I want to dance to most and mess around on the pole experimenting with the combinations that run through my head for the next month. Basically, relaxing and enjoying pole dancing.
