I never went back to that stupid class. I hated it.I need to start again stretching on my own.
So I took my first stretching class last night and it was a total dissapointment. YUK.
Partner Stretching = GETYOURFACEOUTOFMYPUSSYANDLETGOOFMYKNEESIDON’TKNOWYOU.
No tips, no information. Just a $18 class of stretching. FUCK THIS SHIT. SUCH A WASTE OF TIME and MONEY!
HOWever,instead of giving into my angry ways, I somehow managed to send the teacher a bubbly note asking for information and routines and stuff. ack. I hope she comes through for me.
I just couldn’t take it anymore. The routine I was doing was boring, the disco music blaring at me from outside my earbuds was irritating, and I wasn’t seeing results.
SOOOO, Starting in a few weeks, I’m taking a one month course at Bumbershoots in flexibility. I’ve heard from my pole instructors that it would help me and I’ve decided that I need help. I quit pole class. Hopefully, only temporarily. This second job and my dissapointment in my weight gain really threw me off my drive for pole dancing. PLUS, I don’t like the classes she put me in. One is really nice, but WAY advanced for me and one is my speed but DAMN I HATE those bitches. SeRIOUSLY. So, I STILL want to be more flexible because it’ll serve me in many endeavors and I’m hoping to see some results in a month that spurs me on to finally get some sort of splits and a decent toe point.
I stretch 4 days a week at lunch, and about 3 nights a week at home and I’m seeing no real results. I guess I should try to stretch 14 TIMES a week, even if it’s sometimes 3X/day and none the next. I’ll be ok.
I’m not making much progress, but I just got my pole a few weeks ago and I’ve been stretching twice a day on some days and NONE on others. I think if I stretch every day, and twice a day a few times a week, I will see definite difference in a few months. Just guessing.
I stopped for a while, but I’m back at it.
I could be wrong, and I’ll definitely be ok with it, but I suspect that I’ll have the side splits, on the left side, in ONE month. I feel like I’m making tiny little advancements every other day…maybe it’s only a fraction of an inch, and I don’t have a way of measureing, exactly, but I FEEL like these tiny incremental advancements are happening, are significant in the scheme of the overall picture, and are definitely worth loving and rejoicing about.
I’ve made BETTER progress…weird.
I am,I guess, around 4 inches from the floor on side splits, maybe even just three inches, and that’s WAY better than a month ago. huh.cool!
I’ve made TINY progress, but it’s PROGRESS, and it’s been really ENJOYABLE and NOT torturous. Sort of like I work out in the morning. I say “just lift something light and get toned or loose. You DON’T have to BUILD MUSCLE today” and then, I get a decent workout in and feel great. Same with stretching. I say “Hey, this kindof hurts. I think I’ll back off because I don’t CARE if I see progress TODAY, exactly. I’ll see it later!” and I back off of the stretch, relax, and usually surprise myself with a deeper stretch. I now stretch twice a day..in the morning with my weights, and in the afternoon for lunch. I even stretched tonight, Saturday, when I was depressed about the cash for houses guy, and stretching made me feel GREAT!
