Check in after a week of vacation - it's amazing how fast a week of doing very little flies by!! I'm definitely feeling refreshed, though maybe not back to 100% yet, but I'm at least excited about getting back to work and my other usual routines on Monday, which is an exciting development for me. Morning routine stuff was mostly good this week, but my evening routine totally and completely flew out the window on most nights. I'm not surprised, but I'd definitely like to hit the reset on that this coming week, and maybe start playing around with some more yoga poses from the book I bought a while ago (so far, I've just done some of the shoulder focused ones and found them really helpful for increasing my mobility and addressing some tightness). Dance stuff has been going quite well, I'm having a relatively easy time recognizing when some of my self-study projects were biting off way more than I can chew and adjusting my expectations and goals there (like wanting to study all the technique books in depth over just the summer...lol dude, it takes teaching professionals literally years to master the info for a reason!). Oh, and through serendipity, I logged onto a dating app Sunday night, chatted with a cute guy for like an hour and a half, ended up going on a date Monday, then seeing each other again yesterday and planning on another date today. So extra free time sure isn't all bad!
I also had a bozo move where I tried to do a legs workout and a full-out dance practice on Thursday and I'm still feeling the DOMS. Silly Mike, but at least now I have confirmation that working out on dance days (at least hardcore legs strength) is a VERY BAD IDEA.
Basically, things are good!
