Thursday 6 - 7:10am Bikram Cambie - Roxana

It was a super full class today. I forgot  my water bottle in the car and had to run down and get it. I had a really good class up until the spine strengthening. I just got too hot - and melted on the floor and didn't do any of it. I was happy to get to leave early. Tomorrow I stay the full class - I hope it isn't as hot. I think that left, back corner I was in today is a hot one.

Wednesday 4:54 - 5:16 Skate E Spot (22 mins)

Ollies, 180's over the line - that is about as far as I got before it rained. The boy and I also played, "Come Get Me!" And I would ollie and 180 over lines while waiting for me to come and get me.

Friday 6 - 7:15am Bikram Cambie - Roxana

I wanted to go to yoges Thursday so I could stay the whole class but I couldn't get out of bed after that competition night. Friday, today, I struggled but just wanted to get my three classes in this week. I got there and started strong but then slowly melted and faded away into another world. Oh well - I made it there and .. ya .. I went. Next week and all of May should be a very productive and less worky month for me - so I am happy and keeping my eye on the prize.

Tuesday 6 - 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Sunshine

The parking gate was closed and once I got into the parking lot it was dark. The power was out in half the building. Sunshine handled it all well and class went on as normal. There were a lot of people so it was still warm but not as hot - obviously. The power came on when we hit the floor.

It was kind of fun yoging in the dark for a bit. I wouldn't want to do it in the dark all the time. It kinda kept me sleepy.

-180's over the line - getting way easier
-line one
-some wall kick flips
-no wall - back foot goes back to safe spot

Monday 6-7:07am Bikram Cambie - Jan

Jan is great. I always hear something new to help me in her class. Today she helped me in floor bow by telling me to flex my toes and push them forwards while trying to bring inner thighs closer together. It was a leg tongue twister but I will keep working towards it.

Sun run nose slide morning. The boy ripped it up as well. He is learning from all of those slate vids we watch. Jonny got some footage that I will add to the boy skate progression video. Bedtime!

Wednesday 6 - 7:05 am Bikram Cambie - Jan

I almost went back to sleep this morning... but then I got up and went. It was a great class to start. Jan is really intense and her classes are really hot. I didn't finish strong - but I did really well through the standing series.

Wednesday 6 - 7:07am Bikram Cambie - Roxana

I had a great class this morning. I didn't miss anything and I just did really well. I didn't think that would happen when I first got startled awake.

Wednesday 6 - 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Mari

Didn't have time to write yesterday. I still remember how this class did me in. I was moving really slug like after it. I will be back Friday - but it will be a Roxana class and they are usually a lot better for me than a Mari class. Mari kills me - which is good ... sometimes.

Tuesday 6 - 7:10am Bikram Cambie - Stephanie

The teacher today was very energetic and gave a lot of good corrections to people. She smiled at me and encouraged me to move forward even when I was hot and tired.

I had a good class. I missed one set of triangle. (I took a break) My back is totally better and I did the spine strengthening.

Monday 1:30 - 2:30 Hip Hop - Shauna

BBGMM - Rihanna song

I feel like I haven't taken a hip hop class in a while. I liked the choreo and would like to do this one again - I feel like I would get the confidence to rock it better if I had a few days to let it soak in and then try again. I used to love that with JP's class - doing the same choreo two weeks in a row. I guess I can do that in July - or maybe even start a regular class May - when dance team is over. Maybe JP's!!

I like the way Shauna teaches - letting you know where the pauses are and boom batting her way through the choreo.

Monday 9:45 - 10:25 Skate E Spot (40 minutes)

I did some ollie to warm-up. I did each line 5 times. I tried my kick flips with the wall - but wasn't really getting it like yesterday. Jonny hurt his back - that sucks. Sun all week.

I might get one more sesh - depending on nap time.

Sunday 9:20 - 10:20 Skate E Spot (1 hour)

SUN!!! It was crisp and sunny today. I landed a million kick flips holding on to the wall - totally cheating - but this is the summer of the kick flip, the big ollie, and the big 180. It is the summer of olling up a curb and down a couple of steps. I love summer!

Saturday 1 - 2:30 Ballet - Nicola

New shoes today - they must be magic - Moe came in and told me my feet were beautiful and quick. Made my day. I had a good class.

Friday 10:21 - 10:57 Skate E Spot (36mins)

I finally got a skate in. I hope I get a few more in this long weekend.

Friday 12 - 1:30 Contemporary - Julio

My back is better! YAY!! My right knee is still sore and I can't put pressure on it - but I can move and dance again! (Julio's back was sore today. I sympathized in my mind as he tried to teach through the pain.)

I don't know the name of the song. It was lyricaly but fast and it had up beat moments.

I have never done double pirouette to tour en l'aire to knee before and I did it once during the practice but then when it came to getting it in time with the music I just got too flustered and jerkily added the knee part in as a second thought almost... too fast. If I did it three more times I would have gotten it.

I liked the routine. It was just enough choreo. My head right before the last few moves was like, "ok full!" and then it was done. Phew.

Tomorrow - ballet!

Thursday 6 - 7:10am Bikram Cambie- Roxana

Roxana got a nice little bob. She looks cute.

I had a better class than Tuesday. I am looking forward to dancing all weekend and then starting yoges again next week.

My alarm jolted me awake this morning.

I think my back is better but I am still playing it cautious. I will try for real next week.

Tuesday 6 - 7:20am Bikram Cambie - Mari

I didn't have a good class. I forgot to write my blog yesterday - or was too busy - I didn't go today because yesterday was so awful. I will try again Thursday.
